    Cheesy Broccoli-Kale Egg Scramble Recipe

    This is by far my favorite way to incorporate more dark, leafy greens into my family's breakfast.

    Prep Time:
    Cook time:
    Servings: 4–6


    • large eggs: 6
    • grated cheddar cheese: ¾ cup
    • whole milk: 1 tablespoon
    • salt: ½ teaspoon
    • freshly cracked black pepper: ¼ teaspoon
    • olive oil (or butter): ½ tablespoon
    • scallions: 2 stalks, thinly sliced
    • broccoli florets: 1½ cups, roughly chopped
    • kale leaves: 1cup, finely chopped


    Step 1: In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, grated cheese, milk, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

    Step 2: Heat the olive oil (or butter) in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the sliced scallions and sauté for about 2 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add the chopped broccoli florets and kale, and mix well. Sauté for about 5 minutes or until the broccoli is bright green and tender, and the kale leaves have wilted.

    Step 3: Increase the flame to high and pour in the egg and cheese mixture. As the eggs begin to set, use a wooden spoon to stir and scramble. Cook for about 2–3 minutes, or to your desired doneness. Serve immediately with buttered whole grain toast and fresh cherry tomatoes.
