 Prep and Cook Time: 20 minutes 

 Ingredients:
  • 1/2 medium onion, minced
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 lb ground lamb or turkey
  • 1 + 2 TBS chicken broth

Directions:

  1. Mince onion and chop garlic let them sit for 5 minutes to enhance their health-promoting benefits.

  4. Add garlic, ground lamb or turkey, and cook for another 3 minutes on medium heat, breaking up clumps.
  5. Add kale and 2 TBS broth. Reduce heat to low and continue to cook covered for about 5 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and mix.
  6. Beat eggs, season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and pour on top of mixture evenly. Cook on low for another 2 minutes without stirring.
  7. Place skillet under broiler in middle of oven, about 7 inches from the heat source so it has time to cook without the top burning. As soon as the eggs are firm, it is done, about 2-3 minutes.
