  • • Fat of Choice
  • • 1-2 eggs
  • Baby Kale
    {as much as you want}
  • 2-3 {1 oz} cooked sausages, chopped
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt + pepper
  • Favorite herb seasoning
    {I just used dried basil}
  • Feta or your favorite cheese {100% optional}


  1. Heat an appropriate sized skillet with your favorite fat over medium heat and let it melt.
    Make sure your skillet is the right size for a fried egg, using too big of a pan or too small of a pan can result in your egg not looking too hot in the end!
  2. Crack your eggs into the pan and cook until they’re done to your liking.
  3. Layer your baby kale and chopped, cooked sausage onto a plate while the eggs cook — then top it with your salt, pepper, dried basil and drizzle on some olive oil + balsamic vinegar. If you’re going to add some kind of cheese now would be perfect time to crumble it ontop!
    Alternatively you could put all of your salad ingredients into a bowl, toss it around and then put it on your plate – it just depends on what makes you happy / you have time for!
  4. When your eggs are done, give them a hearty crack of pepper and a little salt, add on top of your salad and enjoy!


If your sausages aren’t cooked — you could chop them and then cook them first in a small skillet, then use your sausage fat to cook your fried eggs!
AND if you don’t like fried eggs, just make your favorite kind of egg for this — it’ll be yummy no matter what!
