- 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil, or vegetable oil
- 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
- 2 bunches curly green kale
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- Kosher salt, as needed
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 5 Handsome Brook Farms Pasture Raised Organic Eggs
- 1 lemon, zested, for garnish
- Freshly grated parmesan, for garnish
Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a large cast iron skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook, stirring often, until golden, 10 to 12 minutes.
Meanwhile, stem the kale, thinly slice the stems, and roughly chop the leaves, keeping the stems and leaves separate.
To the caramelized onions, stir in crushed red pepper, kale stems, and a heavy pinch salt. Cook until the stems have softened, 3 to 4 minutes.
Add half of the kale leaves, 2 tablespoons water, and a pinch of salt. Cook, covered, until slightly wilted, 2 minutes. Add the remaining kale leaves, another 2 tablespoons water, and a pinch of salt. Cook, covered, until slightly wilted, 2 minutes.
Stir in the cream and adjust seasoning with salt. Make 5 wells in the kale and crack an egg into each. Season each with a pinch of salt. Bake for 5 minutes, until the whites are just set.
Garnish with grated lemon zest and Parmesan, then serve.
