Easy and Satisfying Kale and Feta Egg Bake

The following post was originally featured on Running to the Kitchen and written by Gina Matsoukas, who is part of POPSUGAR Select Fitness. This easy kale feta egg bake is a perfect quick weeknight dinner or savory breakfast. Add cooked ground sausage for a heartier meat version.

I’m kind of at a loss over what to say about this kale feta egg bake. It’s one of those dishes so simplistic that it’s hard to fully describe the depth of flavor and taste because it just doesn’t make sense.

Does that even make sense? You feel me, I know you do.

There’s kale, lots of FEH-TA, some sauce, and eggs. So you’ve got your vegetables, your dairy, fruit (tomato sauce totally counts as fruit), and protein all in one cute little ramekin, bowl, or whatever you want to bake it in.

Making it reminds me of lasagna with all its pretty layers.

Start with the sauce as your base,

and then layer,

layer some more,

just a littttle more,

and voila!

This is my go-to single lady dinner on the nights Ulysses works late. With a crusty piece of bread to soak up the runny egg and the melted feta, it’s near perfection.
