How to Make "Eggs Brian"

  1. Add kale to a saute pan and season with salt and pepper. Use a little bit of olive oil over medium high heat. And kale in batches as it reduces. After the first minute or two add the minced garlic. Stir continuously to prevent garlic from burning and to ensure all the kale reduces evenly.
  2. In another pan add oil or butter for lubrication and put over medium heat. Add eggs and cook over easy. Cook on one side until able to flip, then cook the eggs for less than a minute and cut the heat.
