Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 pound bulk turkey sausage
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • 2 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 10 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese divided
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Heat the oil in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Once hot, add the sausage, kale, garlic, black pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes, and cook until the meat is browned, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool to room temperature.
  • Lightly beat together the eggs and 3/4 cup Parmesan, and pour it into the skillet with the sausage. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan on top.
  • Bake until the eggs are set, about 18 to 20 minutes. If desired, broil the top to brown it slightly. Sprinkle the parsley on top.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
