Chard Breakfast Wraps

SFC_chard_swissI read an article online this week that said Swiss chard was in the top ten most hated items to get in your CSA bag.  Oh no! That is terrible.  Chard is so beautiful, nutritious, and yummy.  It is full of some key nutrients that are often difficult to get enough of such as vitamin A, folate, vitamin K, calcium, magnesium and plenty of fiber.

My guess is that it is simply a matter of being foreign to many people.  Here is an easy recipe your whole family will love.

Ingredients:

  1. 1 bunch of Swiss chard, with the leaves removed from the midrib.  Chop the leaves and midrib, but put in separate bowls
  2. 1 chopped onion
  3. Chopped bacon
  4. Wrap (try these grain free “ paleo wraps
  5. 4 beaten eggs
  6. Organic cream cheese
  7. Salt and pepper
  8. Hot sauce

Instructions:

  1. Fry out the chopped bacon.  When it is finished, remove it from the pan.
  2. Add the chopped onion and chopped chard midrib to the bacon fat.  Sauté until tender.  
  3. Add the chopped chard leaves and cook until wilted.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. In another pan, scramble the eggs.
  6. Prepare your wrap by smearing it with cream cheese, add the greens, eggs and bacon.
  7. Add some hot sauce, if you like it spicy.
  8. Roll it up and enjoy!

Now, I don’t want to hear anyone else tell me they hate chard!  It is just a little misunderstood, and you haven’t yet added enough bacon!

Eat your veggies!

    That’s funny about the bacon because If I’m cooking a veggie that the family is not fond of, I always just cook it with bacon and everybody eats it LOL. And thanks for the tip about keeping the mid rib and cooking it first. I’ve always just thrown them away. Which was so sad to me because they have such beautiful color!
