Like most recipes, this breakfast salad was an entire accident. I had a few eggs and a few kale I wanted to make use of. I didn’t really feel like scrambled eggs and I imagine a disappointing breakfast that was not presupposed to be a breakfast salad however surprisingly was one. At any charge, I dug by way of the drawers for some potatoes and determined to go all out with breadcrumbs in lieu of toast.
One factor you may discover, it appears surprisingly like I put bits of ham on this salad. I didn’t- these are attractive purple potatoes from an area farm. They undoubtedly usually are not required however they do add a sure ‘made you look’ to the dish.
Potatoes: Use no matter potatoes you might have available. I usually maintain a Yukon gold or some fingerling potatoes available however a diced russet would work simply as properly.
Pretend-Bacon (or some sausage): I really feel like the one factor lacking from a breakfast salad could be sausage or bacon. You could possibly simply make some coconut ‘bacon’ or I’m type of obsessive about area roast’s apple maple breakfast sausages.
Greens: I do know kale salads aren’t for everybody. Swap out the kale for spinach or your favourite type of lettuce. I really love the fragile nature of spinach on this salad however the hearty kale holds up a bit higher to the egg yolks.
Kale is such a flexible inexperienced. It’s heartier sufficient that it might probably maintain as much as warmth whereas rising and thru the cooking course of however simply tender sufficient that it might probably work in a salad. I are likely to develop and use lacinato kale as a result of I discover the feel higher all through the cooking course of. Nevertheless, I like to recommend making an attempt a pair completely different varieties to see which you want greatest.
