A delicious and easy baked egg dish that uses kale as a base. The kale melts under the heat but still holds a bit of texture.

1 cup shredded lacinato kale

¼ cup thinly sliced shallot

¼ cup heavy cream

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper

2 large eggs

3 to 4 tablespoons dukkah (see note)


  • Heat oven to 400˚F with a rack in the middle of the oven. Place the shredded kale and sliced shallot in a small baking dish, roughly 6” to 8” wide.
  • Pour 3 tablespoons of the cream over the kale and sprinkle in the salt and pepper. Toss the kale with the cream until well coated.
  • Make two wells in the kale and carefully crack an egg in each. Spoon the remaining tablespoon cream mixture over the egg whites.
  • Place the dish in the oven and bake for 10 to 14 minutes, until the egg whites are set and the yolk is to your liking.
  • Sprinkle the dukkah over the eggs before serving. Sprinkle chili flakes and serve with a sprinkle of a salt if desired.
