Turn Thanksgiving leftovers into a cheesy Italian Turkey & Kale Egg Bake. This perfectly balanced, savory meal is a delicious way to start your day!
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and I have no shame in saying it’s for all the delicious food! What I love best about Thanksgiving though are the leftovers. As a single girl, I usually have a lot of them too. Leftovers can be a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing is you have food for days; the bad thing is you get really sick of eating the same things over and over again. Instead of throwing those leftovers out, I like to repurpose them into something brand new. Why let good food go to waste, right?
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always eaten an egg bake on Thanksgiving. It was a tradition in my house when I was growing up. Egg bake and cinnamon rolls every Thanksgiving morning. I can still smell them baking in my mother’s kitchen to this day.
This may come as a surprise to you, but I wasn’t always an eggs for breakfast kind of person. It wasn’t until five years ago when I committed to changing my eating and exercise habits that led me to losing 80 pounds that I started eating eggs daily. Since then, eggs have been an important stable in my diet. They’re an excellent source of vitamins & protein and great for building lean muscle and keeping me full. But when it comes to selecting eggs I don’t just eat any eggs. In fact, when it comes to any food I’m very picky about what I put in my body. Just ask anyone who knows me. That’s why I choose Eggland’s Best eggs.
Eggland’s Best Eggs have superior nutrition when compared to ordinary eggs. Each EB Egg contains 4x more Vitamin D and 10x more Vitamin E than ordinary eggs, plus they stay fresher longer! For those of you who’ve been long time followers, you know I’ve suffered a number of bone and joint problems the past two years. To combat those issues, I look for foods naturally high in omega-3 to include in my diet. Eggland’s Best delivers more than double the omega-3 than ordinary eggs, which helps control join pain by reducing inflammation; one of the many reasons why they’re my egg of choice!
