Potato and Kale Breakfast Tray Bake




leftovers potato kale food waste

This Potato and Kale and Egg Breakfast Tray Bake is one of my fail safe breakfast recipes when I *think* I have nothing to have for breakfast. But after a little *fridge forage* I can usually find eggs, some leftover roasted root veg and some sort of greenery getting a little wilted in my fridge. So let that make the base of a lovely breakfast tray bake, which you can bung in the oven, have a slow start and then you have minimal washing up to do afterwards. WIN WIN!

If you’ve got pre-cooked potatoes or any other veg, then bring the cooking time down as they won’t need to cook first. But if you have found some knobbly raw potatoes in need of love them simply follow the timings here. Minimise your food waste and don’t worry about peeling the potatoes, just remove any real hefty knobbly parts.

Add in any greens you’ve got here and some freshly picked herbs would be lovely sprinkled on top afterwards too.


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C and let the ghee/butter melt in a large baking tray in the oven while you prep the veg.
  2. Remove the tray, toss the onion, veg, rosemary and thyme in the melted ghee/butter with salt and pepper and paprika/ chilli if using then spread out in one single layer and roast for 25 minutes.
  3. Turn the heat down to 200C, remove the tray, add the garlic and kale and toss together and roast for another 5 minutes until the celeriac is tender and going golden at the edges.
  4. Then toss the veg again and make 4 gaps in the veg mix, crack the eggs in, season the eggs, and bake for another 5 or so minutes until the whites have set nicely then enjoy straight away serving straight from the pan


800g chunky chopped celeriac (peeled) / potatoes (unpeeled)
