We had ANOTHER snow day this week, which in March is a bit crazy for the Baltimore area. Plus, the past few years it’s been unseasonably warm so this winter has been particularly brutal.

Anyway, on this snow day I found myself with a bad case of cabin fever and a bag of kale, which resulted in some fun experiments and dishes — Spicy Egg Kale Cups being one of them.

for awhile but that was starting to get old so I decided to have a little fun.

The result was an amazingly simple, tasty and light breakfast I will be making again even though both kids turned their noses up to it.

What do kids know anyway?

This was yummy!

Here’s what I did…

  • About a cup of kale (40g)
  • 2 eggs
  • Hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 pieces thin-sliced deli ham (2oz)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the kale and a splash of water.

Cook the kale just a bit to soften and reduce.

Spray 4 cups in a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray and layer in 2 slices of ham in each cup.

Spoon in the kale-egg mixture, distributing evenly among the cups.

    These look great and I really want to make them, but I don't have a lot of time in mornings...they should rehead pretty well, right? Reply

      They would totally heat up well! Just a few secs in the microwave!
