  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and coat a 12-cup muffin tin generously with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. Lightly flour a clean work surface and roll each pie dough out into a 13-inch circle.

  3. Use a 4-inch round cookie cutter (or lid or bowl of similar size) to cut out six rounds from each pie dough.

  4. Press dough rounds into the bottom and up the sides of each muffin tin cup. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.

  5. Heat oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Tilt the pan to distribute the oil so that it covers the bottom of the skillet, add mushrooms and cook, undisturbed for 3 minutes. Season with 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally until golden brown, about an additional 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add kale and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and cool 10 minutes.

  6. Meanwhile, in a large measuring cup or bowl, whisk eggs, milk and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper together. Stir the sauteed mushrooms and kale into the egg mixture. Divide the egg mixture evenly among muffin cups. Top each with some of the goat cheese and bake until set and tops are golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes.

  7. Use a fork to carefully remove from the tin and garnish with chives before serving.

  8. Note: Save extra dough for another use.


    Note: The USDA recommends cooking egg dishes to 160 degrees Fahrenheit.


  • As needed, for rolling out the dough all-purpose flour
  • 1 package (2 crusts) refrigerated pie dough
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 2 cups curly kale, trimmed, stems removed, and roughly chopped

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
