Kale, Bacon & Egg Breakfast Tostadas
"Crunchy and tender all at the same time – topped with a gorgeous runny egg. These Kale, Bacon & Egg Breakfast Tostadas make the perfect late breakfast or lazy brunch. Plus they only take about 15 minutes to come together! This is pretty easy to throw together, and I managed to do everything in one big pan – saving on the washing up. Always a bonus. It definitely hit the spot – crunchy tostadas layered with tender kale, another layer of crunch from some super crispy bacon and then a creamy runny egg."
Preparation Time5 min
Cooking Time10 min
- 2 6 inch flour tortillas
- 2 large eggs
- 1 large handful kale, chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 100 grams smoked streaky bacon (around 4 rashers)
Heat the oven to around 180C / 350F. Place the tortillas on a lined baking tray and place in the oven until they are crisp (but not too brown and overdone). Around 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat a small drizzle of the oil in a non stick frying pan or skillet over a medium heat and add the kale. Saute for a few minutes until soft.
Reduce the heat to low and remove the kale and set aside (you can pop into the bottom of the oven to keep warm). Add the bacon rashers to a large frying pan and cook until crisp – turning around every 2-3 minutes. When the bacon is nearly done push it to one side of the frying pan and add the remaining oil to the other half. You want it to pool together so you may need to tilt the pan.
Add the eggs to the oil and fry gently (make sure the oil isn’t too hot, unless you prefer fried eggs with crunchy edges).
Once done plate the dish – add the tostada, the kale, the bacon and then top with the egg. Season with salt and pepper and some chopped parsley (optional).
