Kale Bacon Mushroom Baked Eggs

Kale Bacon Mushroom Baked Eggs

Sharing is caring!

Happy New Year!  As we sit here writing out new goals for the new year, we ponder as to where the last year went.  It seems it was only yesterday that we were scribbling down the words “eat better”.  Here we are, once again making that commitment to be better to our bodies by eating healthier and fueling our hunger with real food.  This recipe for Kale Bacon Mushroom Baked Eggs is loaded with just that, real food!


Spinach Bacon Mushroom Baked Eggs


While we typically eat more real food as opposed to processed, we still feel we could do a little better.  The top of our list reads that we should add more garden fresh ingredients to our everyday meals and to cut back on red meats.  Another area of improving our eating habits is to make more of an effort of starting out the day with a filling but healthy meal.

I like to get my morning workout in before the day starts for most people, which means by the time I get home I am ravenous.  Over time, I have found that if I add an egg to my morning routine, I am satisfied for a few hours and will not snack on junk that is lurking in the pantry.  Often I include that egg with a big bowl of grains or legumes.  Recently, I have been enjoying baking them with a little bacon and rich greens such as kale or spinach.  Lenny on the other hand likes to keep some hard-boiled eggs in the refrigerator as a quick go-to protein snack in the afternoon before he hits the gym or when he needs a quick pick me up.

Whether you prefer to enjoy your eggs in the morning or afternoon, eggs are a great source of real food over heavily processed or synthetic foods.  For instance:

  • Eggs are all-natural and provide one of the highest quality proteins of any food available. One egg provides more than six grams of protein or 13 percent of the recommended Daily Value (DV), and nearly half is found in the yolk.
  • Eggs are all-natural and packed with a number of nutrients. One egg has lots of vitamins and minerals, high-quality protein and antioxidants, all for 70 calories.
  • Eggs are an excellent source of choline and selenium, and a good source of high-quality protein, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and riboflavin.

How are you going to add eggs to your New Year’s resolution of eating better at home?

Saw this recipe shared on twitter. I can't wait to try it. It's so simple. I eat a healthy amount of egg and enjoy them. I LOVE KALE, and 2 out 3 of my daily meals include mushrooms. Right now I have fresh scapes, so I will use those instead of shallots. This dish is for moi!

First of all, this looks amazing and finally gives me a great excuse to buy adorable mini cast iron pans (I've been trying REALLY HARD to actually find excuses for all the things I want to take home). Second of all, where in West Oakland are you and how can I become your friend and get invited to dinner? Because I'm in West Oakland too!

We have our own chickens, so I'm always looking for way of making eggs (other than chocolate cake!). Your baked eggs look amazing and the addition of kale, bacon and mushrooms make them healthy and lush at the same time.

This looks really good, but you may want to rethink the name since it doesn't use Spinach.
