This breakfast recipe is packed with healthy green vegetables as well as eggs and feta cheese for protein to start your day. The Italian parsley adds a lot of flavor to the fresh green vegetables. Make this dish with lemon-infused olive oil if you can find it in your grocery store. —Carrie Dault, Baxter, Tennessee

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 pound fresh Brussels sprouts, quartered
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth, divided
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small bunch kale, trimmed and chopped (about 8 cups)
  • 9 ounces fresh baby spinach, chopped (about 7 cups)
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, minced
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add Brussels sprouts, green pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt; cook and stir until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons broth and garlic; cook 1 minute longer. In batches if needed, add kale, spinach and parsley; cook and stir until wilted, 3-4 minutes. Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons broth and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
