Bacon and Kale Egg Muffins

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.



I have a small confession to make, I don’t LOVE kale. Sure, I’ll eat it, and I do often cook with it; but all by itself, I could live without. I do enjoy it in the occasional smoothie, when it’s pulverized. I also enjoy it in these egg muffins. Kale adds that freshness you really desire in this quick breakfast snack. When I first made “egg muffins,” I was skeptical. I was sworn that they reheated extremely well, and tasted just about the same as when they were fresh out of the oven. Again, I was skeptical. I gave it a shot, and was completely proven wrong. They are delicious reheated, and I am so happy about this! More often than not, I just want a quick breakfast. I work from home, so I don’t feel the “rush” many people do when heading off to work; but sometimes I still want something easy peasy in the morning. This is one of those recipes that is perfect for Sunday prep. Whip up a batch at the beginning of the week, and refrigerate. They will last approximately a week. Pop them in the microwave for 30-45 seconds, and I promise you they will be just as delicious as they tasted on Sunday. Pack them full of your favorite ingredients: kale, bacon, cheese (of any melting variety), spinach, sausage, fresh veggies…the possibilities are limitless.






Beer Love:

Beer: Wynkoop’s Rail Yard Ale
Style: Amber Ale
ABV: 5.2%
Description: While still having a touch of hoppiness, I get a lot of sweetness from this Amber Ale, which is why I really enjoy it. It is very refreshing and light, but still robust with fruitiness and slight caramel flavors. It has an aroma that I really want in an amber. I didn’t want anything that was out of control in hoppiness for this pairing, nor did I want anything insanely sweet. Something just in the middle would be perfect, and this is exactly what Rail Yard Ale provides. It’s quite drinkable and great with lighter dishes. I think it would be great with any egg dish. If you are feeling spunky on a weekend morning, give this pairing a shot!

  1. Hahaha, when I first saw this post I thought to myself this recipe is just what I need since I don’t really like kale. Now you know why I was laughing when I started to read this post. These muffins would be perfect for breakfast or as a healthy snack!

  2. This is one of my favorite breakfasts! You’re right, if you have never tried them, it’s kind of hard to see how they could be so portable/reheatable/easy but somehow they are. It’s a recipe for the perfect breakfast, at home or at work!

  3. Hehe, I’m not a fan of kale either but I’m trying to eat it more often in hopes I’ll suddenly fall in love with it. I’m loving these little egg muffins. I could see myself making them for a brunch. :)

  4. I definitely would have been skeptical of reheated eggs, so I’m glad that you told me these are great reheated! They look delicious and would be so perfect for a breakfast on the go! I love kale…I hope you jump on the bandwagon :) Maybe kale chips (loaded with olive oil and salt) will win you over!
