Kale and Potato Side Dish

The kale is growing like crazy in the garden right now, seems to be enjoying the cooler weather. I picked some the other day intending to use it in a stir fry but I FORGOT to add it in! LOL!! Yesterday, I was perusing the web looking for recipes using kale and came across a couple of side dishes using kale and potatoes. This is what I did.

Cut two slices of bacon into pieces and brown well in a skillet. Remove bacon pieces to a paper towel lined plate to drain.


Cut three red potatoes into 1/4-inch thick slices and cook in salted, boiling water until done but not mushy.


Cut one small onion into thin slices and brown in the bacon grease.


Wash and slice one large bunch of kale into 1/2-inch pieces. Add to skillet with onions. Season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until kale is tender. If necessary, add water to the pan to prevent sticking.


When kale is done, add potatoes and heat through. Sprinkle with reserved bacon pieces. This would also work well with Swiss chard or spinach. Enjoy!

You must be a mind-reader! I was just thinking about what to do with the lovely bunch of kale in my refrigerator. This sounds delicious and easy - we may be eating the same thing tonight!

dr momi,
It sure was! I thought about adding an egg over easy but ended up eating it just like it was! :)

I love kale! I haven't planted it for a few years (we've done spinach instead) but this recipe is a good reason to put some in next spring.

Mooberry Farmwife,
I think spinach would work very well with the potatoes and bacon! :)

Nancy,
I thought about garlic but passed on it this time. We love garlic so I'm sure it will make it's way in there in the future! :)
