Fried Egg and Kale
As you all know, I enjoy making a range of breakfasts on the weekend. I prefer the complex dishes but sometimes it's nice to go simple. I have eating kale quite a bit recently and I love it's sweet crunchiness against the other elements in general, especially when fried in butter.
This weekend, I had some extra kale in the Packet so I decided to have it with some fried egg. Usually I like to use Spinach so it is nice to make a change. Reason being, I liked the contrasting crunch from the kale with the soft, velvety egg. Also there is a lovely buttery taste as well.
As usual, you can garnish your egg with either parsley, coriander or chives. It just a makes the egg more colourful and invited to eat. Not to mention, added flavour.
This breakfast is great if you are in a rush and you need to go somewhere or you want you want a light fry up. Finally there are some health benefits eating an egg with kale.
