  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small sauté pan heat oil over a medium high flame. Add shallot and sauté until soft, about 1 minutes. Remove from pan and add kale. Sauté until soft about 4 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool.
  3. Place a 24 mini muffin tin in the preheated oven on a middle shelf. Let the pan preheat in the oven for about 10 minutes.
  4. Whisk together eggs, egg whites, milk, cheese, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl.
  5. Remove hot muffin in from the oven. Spray the pan well with cooking spray. Using a small ladle, fill each of the moulds in the muffin tin about half full with the egg mixture. Place a few pieces of turkey bacon, shallot and kale in each one. Top to cover with more egg.
  6. Bake in oven for 5 minutes or until the egg is set and the top is golden brown.

Chef Tips

Turkey bacon, while lower in fat than regular pork bacon, still uses salt and nitrites in the curing process, so please use sparingly, as in a dish like this where a little goes a long way.
