Greens and Eggs
Eggs are one of my very favorite breakfasts. I personally think that a warm breakfast is the very best way to start the day- it helps wake your body up and gets digestion going. The great thing about eggs is that they’re so darn versatile and they taste wonderful on top of greens. I prefer bitter greens for this dish (arugula, dandelion greens, beet tops) since they add a great flavor combination and bitter greens also help stimulate the liver to get moving- making this the perfect dish if you had a few drinks the night before. Sourdough bread goes great with this too!
Ingredients for 1 serving:
2 handfuls of arugula
2 slivers of butter
1 pastured egg
- Add a sliver of butter to a hot pan and once it’s melted toss in the arugula and a sprinkle of sea salt.
- Sautee the arugula until slightly wilted then transfer to a plate.
- Toss in the second sliver of butter and fry up your egg just the way you like it.
- Place the egg right on top of the greens and you’re done.
