Dishing Up the Dirt

Mustard Greens & Egg Breakfast Skillet

It was an incredibly busy weekend at the farm. The sun was shining, the crops were thirsty, we went through two bottles of sunscreen, harvested our butts off, planted winter squash and even squeezed in a much needed late morning brunch.

Despite working our tails off we decided “brunching” on the weekends is going to be a new thing. We kicked off this new tradition with a delicious mustard greens and egg skillet. This dish is a great way to incorporate mustard greens into your diet and I love the spicy bite they bring to this recipe. When they cook down a bit they lose a bit of their pungency so if you’re sensitive to spice don’t worry….I think you can handle this!

Grab a fork, pour a Bloody Mary and enjoy this spicy mustard greens and egg scramble. Cheers!

Mustard Greens & Egg Breakfast Skillet

Prep Time: 10 minutes    Cook Time: 15 minutes    Serves: 2

  • 5 farm fresh eggs
  • 2 Tablespoon oil, divided
  • 3 cups mustard greens, washed and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 of a yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 radishes, thinly sliced
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sprinkle of organic parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. In a bowl whisk together the eggs with a little salt, pepper and crushed red pepper flakes. Set aside.
  2. Heat 1 Tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-heat. Add onion and sauté until soft. About 5 minutes. Add garlic and mustard greens. Cook until greens begin to wilt and garlic is fragrant. About 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and add cooked veggies to the whisked egg bowl. Whisk some more until everything is well blended.
  3. Heat remaining 1 Tablespoon of oil over medium heat in the same pan.  Add egg mixture and when it begins to cook, scramble it using a wooden spoon.
  4. Serve spicy eggs with a little organic parmesan cheese, sliced radishes and additional salt and pepper.

    Glad to see Henry supervising so well and leaving the hens to lay those beautiful green-blue eggs.

    I have been enjoying Hutchins “front porch” goodies. And the tree is gorgeous. Can’t wait until the opening later this week.

      Enjoy opening weekend at Hutchins!

  3. Such a tasty looking brunch dish and a great and easy use of the mustard greens. If this won’t help people feel more comfortable using mustard greens, I don’t know what will. But most of all it’s so inspiring to see how you make time for brunch, even as busy as your weekends are, and that it doesn’t have to be a complicated affair!

    This brunch was well deserved and it looks amazing. I couldn’t find mustard greens this weekend (which was really weird) but as soon I get my hands on some, there will be some veggie burgers and a scramble happening!
