  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 handfuls chopped greens (kale, chard, collards, etc.)
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Shaved Parmesan cheese, for serving


Sauté garlic and ham in olive oil over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Toss in greens and a splash of water. Cover and cook until greens are almost tender, 3 to 5 minutes.

Scatter shaved Parmesan over the top and serve.
