Cheesy Baked Eggs with Kale and Crispy Onions
makes one large serving or two small
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup cup kale, cut into thin ribbons
1 tablespoon whole milk
1/4 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
several twists fresh ground black pepper
3 tablespoons Asiago, grated
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 a yellow onion, sliced
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Use the tablespoon of butter to grease a 6 inch ramekin or small oven-proof baking dish and then place the pat inside the dish and place in the oven just until it melts.
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil over medium heat in a small skillet. Add the onion and cook until the edges have browned, about 5 – 7 minutes.
Remove dish from oven and scatter the kale ribbons around. Carefully crack eggs into the dish. Pour in milk, 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, and the pepper. Bake for 5 minutes.
Working quickly, remove ramekin from oven and scatter Asiago and browned onions over the top. Return dish to oven and bake for 1 2 minutes more, or until the whites are just set. Eggs will continue to cook a bit once out of the oven.
Set aside to cool for 1 – 2 minutes, and serve.
