Breakfast Eggs with Kale & Carrot

Most of the mornings I’m having oats for breakfast or sometimes just a coffee but there are days when I need a bit more to last till late lunch.

I’m not a big fan of eggs on their own, they must be mixed with lots of other things and this kale and carrot omelet recipe is just perfect for me… sweet carrots, crunchy kale and melted cheese – delicious!

Your thoughts…

  1. Oooh I love the look of this!! I would never have thought of shaving the carrot like that. Looks like a really tasty and healthy breakfast!

  2. This looks great, although I’m not sure I could face it for breakfast! Lunch though, definitely 😀 Yum!

  3. Becca – I love my carrot sharpener, very useful tool ;)

    Helen – I’m actually going to make it right now again for my late, after school run breakfast… would not be able to have it very early in the morning as well,

  4. What a delicious breakfast combo Margot, and so nutritious! It almost looks like a breakfast lasagne!

  5. I’m definitely a fan of mixing things into my scrambled eggs, I’ve never tried kale and carrot though – inspired. Smacznego x

  6. I love a good savoury breakfast. Especially if eggs and kale are involved! Lovely.

  7. I love brunch recipes such as this – simple, nutritious and flavourful. wonderful idea Margot and lovely props!

  8. Carrot is an awesome taste, nutrition and colour addition to this tasty sounding breakfast dish. I have kale pretty much every day (I grow several varieties year round) so will need to try it with carrots too.

  9. This looks delicious – and what an interesting way to use carrots. I must admit, I don’t tend to have carrot for breakfast unless its in the form of carrot cake…hehehe
