  • 6 cups kale, chopped
  • 4 large eggs

Reduce heat to medium-low and add shallot. Cook, stirring frequently, until the shallot is softened, approximately two to three minutes. Add a few handfuls of kale, tossing with tongs and adding more as it cooks down, until tender, roughly three to five minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, bacon, cheese and salt. Pour the egg mixtures over the kale and shallot mixture. Stir to evenly distribute the ingredients and cook undisturbed unit lest, approximately three to five minutes.
