2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the eggs

Bring a small sauce pot of water to a boil and fill a small bowl with ice water. Carefully lower the eggs into the boiling water and cook for exactly 6 minutes for soft-cooked (for firmer yolks, cook 1 to 3 minutes longer). Transfer the eggs to the ice water to cool. Carefully peel the eggs. While the eggs are cooking, prepare the sausage.


Prep and cook the sausage

  • Cut a small corner from the sausage packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sausage and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until browned and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Do not clean the pan. Meanwhile, prepare the vegetables.


Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups]. 
  • Scrub or peel the carrot and trim the ends; cut the carrot in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ½-inch-thick half-moons. 
  • Cut the mushrooms into quarters.
  • Strip the kale leaves from the stems; thinly slice the leaves crosswise.


Cook the vegetables; finish the dish

In the same pan used for the sausage, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the carrot and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. 

Stir in the marinara and sausage, then stir in the kale (in batches if needed). Reduce the heat to low and cook until the marinara and sausage are heated through and the kale is just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Cut the eggs

  • Cut the eggs in half lengthwise.


Transfer the sausage, vegetables, and marinara to individual bowls, top with the eggs, and serve.
