Turmeric Fried Eggs and Bacon with Kale
4 large eggs
1 bunch curly kale, ribs and stems removed, leaves torn into large pieces
4 slices bacon
5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
Urfa pepper or other mild red pepper flakes and lime wedges (for serving)
Place a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 375°. Bake bacon until brown and crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. Tear into large pieces; reserve fat for another use.
Meanwhile, spread the kale on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with 2 Tbsp. oil. Massage the leaves with oil and season with salt. Bake, tossing halfway through until edges are lightly browned and crisp-tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
Season the yogurt with salt. Divide among plates and top with bacon and kale.
Heat the remaining 3 Tbsp. oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the eggs one at a time by shaking skillet between additions to prevent them from sticking. Cook by tilting the skillet towards you and pouring the oil over the egg whites until the whites are set for about 2 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat by keeping it tilted and add the turmeric to the oil. Baste egg whites with turmeric oil.
Divide the eggs among plates and drizzle over with turmeric oil. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and squeeze over the limes.
