Easy Kale Feta Egg Toast

Easy Kale Feta Egg Toast is an important reminder that—no matter what else happens today—we can still feed ourselves a decent meal.

A fast, healthy and easy dinner! Kale Feta Egg Toast. Simple and DELICIOUS.

Hit every red light on the way to work? Fresh inch of snow on your once meticulously-shoveled driveway? Your husband/roommate/dexterous dog ate that last slice of brownie pie you’ve been looking forward to all afternoon? Never fear. In 20 minutes, you’ll be sitting down to a wholesome, café-worthy dinner—and the wine is on the house.

An easy, healthy dinner that is DELICIOUS. Creamy Kale Feta Toast with a Fried Egg.

Go to healthy dinner idea: Sauteed kale on toast with feta and eggs. A cheater's version of eggs Florentine!

Ever since making this scandalously easy English muffin bread, I’ve been obsessed with all things toast, and today’s Kale Feta Egg Toast is my new fixation. I ate it three days in a row for lunch last week, and I probably would have had it again for dinner last night if we hadn’t run out of eggs due to my inhaling it non-stop. (The Hazelnut Latte Chocolate Meringue Cookies I baked might also be partially responsible for the egg depletion, but that’s a minor detail.)

Love this fast and healthy dinner! Sauteed kale with feta and runny eggs on toast. Like eggs Florentine, but easier and good for you!

This recipe for Easy Kale Feta Egg Toast was inspired by classic eggs Florentine, which calls for creamed spinach, an English muffin, poached egg, and hollandaise. I simplified and lightened up the standard recipe by using garlicky sautéed kale with a pinch of red pepper (though spinach would work too), a generous helping of creamy, salty feta cheese, and a fried egg.

Though you could certainly keep the English muffin, I like using a standard-shaped loaf, which provides max surface area for sopping up the egg yolk’s saucy goodness, and I really recommend upgrading your life to English muffin bread (can we talk more about how much I love that fluffy, foolproof bread recipe?).

For a fast and healthy dinner, make this Kale Feta Egg Toast. Sauteed greens with creamy feta on toast, topped with a runny egg. DELICIOUS

Garlicky power greens meet toast, meet runny egg, meet feta cheese. Dinner, consider yourself served.
