Baked Eggs with Kale and Sausage

For a long time I thought of Baked Eggs as holiday food. It is tradition in my family to make Baked Eggs for Easter and for Christmas and neither holiday could possibly be enjoyed without them.

Baked Eggs have long been one of my favorite simple meals, but it was years before I realized I could in fact prepare them no matter what the calendar said. Now, Baked Eggs are a dish we enjoy often, sometimes even weekly. 

Written by Allison of Some the Wiser

Baked Eggs can be as simple as Eggs and Cheese baked to melted perfection. However, Kale is a hot menu item at my house right now and I’ve been trying to incorporate it into as many dishes as possible.

Did you know just one cup of Kale has 15% of the daily requirement of calcium and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), 40% of magnesium, 180% of vitamin A, 200% of vitamin C, and 1,020% of vitamin K?

There’s a reason why they call it a Super Food! So I decided to upgrade our ordinary baked eggs to Super Food status by adding Kale.

These Baked Eggs with Kale and Sausage are delicious enough to add them to your holiday menu, but they are easy enough to enjoy them for a weekday breakfast as well.

Admittedly, we’ve been eating them a lot lately – they’re just so good!

How do you like your eggs? Scrambled? Baked?

I adore baked eggs, and the kale addition here is lovely. It's so easy to toss them in the oven while you're wrapping up the rest of the day's necessary chores. (Too bad you can't throw all those things in the oven and forget about them, too.)

I'd be so sad if baked eggs were only restricted to holidays - I love them and eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
