Poached Egg & Butternut Squash Breakfast Kale Salad

Poached eggs on toast may be one of my favorite meals. The combination of the crunchy toast and the creamy yolk is just divine. Add in avocado, roasted tomatoes or a garlic cheese spread to the mix and I’m legitimately in heaven.

If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you’ve seen many pictures posted of this dish. I can’t believe in my year+ of blogging that I haven’t actually shared many breakfast recipes on the blog. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day!

Well, I’m hoping to change that over time, starting today.

I think it’s important to start the day with a hearty breakfast. Most weekday mornings that’s a bowl of cereal or oatmeal with dried cherries and sliced almonds, but the weekends — that’s my time to play. Nothing beats a leisurely Saturday or Sunday morning in the kitchen with some coffee (with Rum Chata – thank you to Zan’s sister, Lindsay, for introducing it to us in the islands!) and time to cook up a delicious breakfast.

I love, love, love the combination of hearty sauteed kale with a roasted vegetable. So I figured I’d combine the two and throw a few poached eggs on top — why not?! I added in a some chopped walnuts for crunch and was left with a delicious breakfast salad to inhale enjoy.

Hope you fellow egg lovers give it a try!…
