Ingredients

For the Scramble:

  • 5 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons real bacon bits
  • 2 whole green onions chopped (including the green tops)
  • 1 cup (heaping) chopped kale
  • ½ cup chopped Swiss cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 dashes salt or salt to taste

For Garnish:

  • 1 teaspoon real bacon bits
  • 2 teaspoons chopped green onion

Instructions

For the Scramble:

  • In a medium size bowl add eggs, milk, pepper, and salt. Whisk together and set aside for a moment. 
  • Heat a medium size skillet on medium heat and add butter. 
  • To the pan, add real bacon bits, green onions, and kale.  Stir together and cook until the kale starts to slightly wilt (about 4 minutes).
  • To the pan, add the egg mixture and stir. 
  • Gently move the eggs around with a spoon or spatula as they’re cooking. 
  • Continue to cook the eggs and stir together with the other ingredients. Just before the eggs are done cooking (about 3 to 4 minutes), add the cheese.
  • Stir in the cheese with the egg for about 2 minutes or until it melts and the eggs are thoroughly cooked. 

For Garnish:

  • Garnish with bacon bits and chopped green onions.  Serve right away while warm.

Notes

TIP

The most important tip for making this recipe is the same one with all recipes that have eggs in them…never crack an egg over food.
It’s a good idea to crack each egg in a separate bowl first before adding it in with other ingredients (or in with other eggs).
This way, if the egg is bad (i.e. smells off or bad, or is discolored), it can be discarded before contaminating other ingredients.
