  • For the Sage-Chile Butter (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon small sage leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
  • For the Eggs and Greens
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 10 ounces white button or cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 6 cups cooking greens (cut into 3/4-inch-wide ribbons), such as collard, mustard, or kale
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • Garnish: finely grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Make the sage-chile butter: Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add sage and red-pepper flakes. Simmer until sage is crisp, about 3 minutes.

  2. Make the eggs and greens: Heat a large, heavy skillet (preferably cast iron) over high heat. Swirl in oil. Cook mushrooms with 1/2 teaspoon salt until golden and tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Stir in garlic, then greens and water. Cook, stirring, until greens wilt. Add unsalted butter, and stir until melted.

  3. Push greens to make 4 wells. Crack 1 egg into each. Season with salt. Cook for 4 minutes. Let stand until whites are set but yolks are still runny, about 4 minutes. Drizzle with sage-chile butter. Garnish with cheese.

    Excellent recipe!!! Very easy to make- I used kale. I skipped the sage butter to keep it healthier and it was not missed.

    Very delicious and very handy for busy weeknights. We are going to have grits on the side the next time we enjoy this dish.
