The “Haylie” breakfast.

Sometimes I find myself at a loss when it comes to what kind of dishes to post here on RGK. Well, you know when something is right in front of your face but you don’t see it? That is this breakfast! I can’t believe I have never posted anything about my favorite breakfast. I have been eating a fried egg over arugula for years. My mom is really who got me hooked on it and she makes it for me every time I go to her house in the morning for coffee. I’ll call her and say “I wanna come over for coffee” but she and I both know I want this breakfast too. I love this breakfast because it’s versatile. If you have parmesan in your fridge…add it! If you have some asparagus, add it. The possibilities are endless. I recently went to brunch at The SoHo house with my sister and they have a kale salad that I love…instead of adding grilled chicken or shrimp, I added…a fried egg. It’s a great way to incorporate more greens in to your diet and it’s just plain delish.

Organic Cage Free Eggs


Cherry Tomato

Sea Salt

Olive Oil


Heat a skillet to medium heat, crack an egg in to the pan and let sit till firm. Lay the warm egg over the arugula so it wilts a bit. Add cherry tomatoes, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of sea salt. Finish with a generous squeeze of lemon. Serve with an iced coffee!

*I leave my eggs over easy so the yolk can run through the greens. Don’t knock it till you try it.

    This is right up my alley, I can’t wait to try this! I’m seriously trying to figure out how to fit a trip to the grocery store in my busy day so I can get the ingredients. Thanks for sharing!!!

    Made this salad for brunch this morning. I love it. No arugula so I used organic baby mixed greens and some bright yellow pepper slices. The runny yolk added a nice dimension of flavor and was my “salad dressing.” Thanks babe!

    I haven’t tried that on a salad yet, but sometimes if I’m busy or I don’t feel like cooking I’ll take any veggie left overs, warm them up on a plate and add two poached eggs to it. My family thinks it’s gross and refuse to try it, but I think it’s delicious. On top of that, I’m using up left overs instead of tossing them just shy of the science experiment stage!

    LOVE this breakfast, Haylie, especially the versatility. Been making it on and off for the last 9 months or so. The fried egg, drizzle of olive oil, dash of sea salt, and squeeze of lime remain consistent, but everything else changes from time to time, depending on what’s available in the fridge that day. It’s a healthy, delicious breakfast that helps me use up produce in the fridge at the end of the week. :)

    In the past, I’ve used arugula, mixed greens, kale, and spinach in addition to a variety of left over produce including strawberries, asparagus, carrots, etc. Today, I made it for my mom’s Mother’s Day breakfast and used spinach, bell pepper, grape tomatoes, celery, blueberries, and avocado. Yum!
