While I am pleased with my humble little herb plants, I am grateful that my Mom has a real green thumb and shares the bounty of her vegetable garden. Last weekend she brought me bunches of Swiss chard, which sent me hunting for a simple sauteed Swiss chard recipe. It made a good side dish for dinner, but it was even better when I made sauteed Swiss chard with eggs for breakfast.
I served the sauteed Swiss chard as a side dish, but had plenty of leftovers. (My husband gamely had a taste, but greens are just not his thing–unless they are in Palaak Paneer.)
Since I love having veggies with my eggs, I decided to try it for breakfast. I reheated the sauteed Swiss chard in my little cast iron skillet, and then scooted it to the edges to form a “nest” for my eggs.
This little pan is the perfect size for my eggs.
I cracked in one whole egg and one egg white–Tiger Lilly gets the other yolk–and let it cook until I could could carefully turn the whole thing over to cook the yolk a bit. I flipped it back over onto my plate, which also is the perfect size!
Have you made Swiss chard?
