    This easy and quick kale and sausage omelet is a great breakfast for the weekend or even during the week. It comes together pretty quickly. My husband made this today, and I loved it. It’s pretty healthy – he used kale, red bell pepper, green onions and mildly spicy grass-fed sausage we buy from a local farm. The sausage really packs so much flavor.

    This vegetable combination is pretty good but you can switch it up a little bit and add whatever you like or have on hand. I think I can eat omelet every day of the week!

    How To Make Kale and Sausage Omelet

    What you need

    2 oz ground sausage, browned

    2 eggs

    salt and freshly ground black pepper

    1/8 cup of finely shredded cheddar cheese

    1/8 of red bell pepper, chopped

    1/4 cup kale, chopped

    green onions, chopped

    1 tsp coconut oil

    Instructions

    Brown sausage in a small skillet. When done, move to a plate.

    In a medium non-stick skillet, add 1 tsp coconut oil and heat over medium heat.

    In a small bowl whisk together the eggs, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add the finely shredded cheddar cheese and stir. Pour the eggs carefully into the preheated pan. Cook until the edges have begun to set, about 2 – 3 minutes. Add the chopped red bell pepper, kale, green onions and sausage to one half of the omelet. Let it cook for another 1 – 2 minutes. Fold the other half over the veggies, and let it cook for 1 minute. Be careful not to overcook or burn your omelet.

    Run a small rubber spatula around the edges of the eggs so as to release it from the pan and then slide it onto a plate. Sprinkle with some chopped green onions and you can also serve it with sliced avocado. Enjoy!

    Can this be prepped and frozen?

      Neli | Delicious Meets Healthy

      I haven’t tried to freeze an omelet but in general, I don’t think cooked eggs freeze well.

    That looks like a good, hearty breakfast, and what a great way to include greens into a morning meal.

    Gloria @ Homemade & Yummy

    Omelettes are great and I love the addition of kale. I often use spinach and eggs together, so kale is a perfect sub for it.

    I don’t think I’d change a thing. I can never get enough kale in my life and love it with sausage and eggs. Great recipe!

    Eggs are truly the best way to start your day! I love spinach, tomato, and a bit of feta cheese…
