Kale, Feta & Poached Egg Toast
Prep time:
Total time:



  • 4 slices whole wheat Brownberry Bread, toasted
  • 2 Heinen’s Organic Cage-Free eggs, poached
  • 1 small bunch organic kale
  • 2 Tbsp. Garlic Expressions Vinaigrette Salad Dressing
  • 15 oz. can sliced red beets, drained
  • 7.5 oz. Heinen’s garlic and herb whipped cream cheese
  • 4 oz. Heinen’s feta cheese crumbles
  • Dash of Simply Organic red pepper flakes


  1. Bring a pot of water to a low boil. Make sure there is enough water to fully submerge the eggs. Once boiling, add 2 Tbsp. of white vinegar.
  2. Crack the eggs into separate ramekins or shallow bowls. This helps to keep the yolks and egg whites intact and makes it easier to gently drop the eggs into the boiling water.
  3. With a spoon, create a whirlpool in the boiling water by stirring the water in a circular motion.
  4. Drop on egg in the center of the whirlpool. Continue to gently stir the water in a circle, being careful not to disturb the egg.
  5. After 4 minutes, remove the egg and place it on a paper towel to dry. Repeat the above steps with the second egg.
  6. While the second egg is poaching, toast the whole wheat bread.
  7. Stack two slices of toast on top of each other. I like to use two slices because it allows more surface area for the runny egg to soak into, making the toast less soggy.
  8. Spread a layer of cream cheese over the top layer of toast, then layer slices of red beets on top.
  9. De-stem each branch of kale and place the leafy bits into a small bowl along with the Garlic Expressions dressing. Massage the dressing into the kale to soften the leaves.
  10. Add the kale on top of the layer of beets and sprinkle with feta cheese.
  11. Finish by placing a poached egg on top with a dash of red pepper flakes.

The Bite Size Pantry, Lauren Schulte
By Lauren Schulte
Well hello there, I’m Lauren and I love food! Keeping meals simple, satisfying and accessible to all is the main purpose behind my cooking, but I always add a touch of creativity and uniqueness.I’m a family-taught cook and food is one of my greatest passion in life, but I suppose there is a little more to me than just food. I am a fur-mama to two wonderful rescue pups, Herbie and Nelly and our cat Grayson, who are all part of The Bite Size Pantry household. They love to be with me in the kitchen and they make the cleanup process a whole lot easier. Thanks to the wonderful internet world I’ve been able to pursue my dream of cooking. Sometimes it seems like a lot, but I just love food and I really love sharing that love with others who love it too.
