Kale with Bacon

The hearty bacon flavor in Margaret Wagner Allen's side dish makes you forget that you're eating right. "Seasoned with garlic, it's a great way to enjoy vitamin-rich kale," writes the Abingdon, Virginia subscriber.

Prep: 15 min. 
Cook: 25 min.
Yield: 6 Servings


2 bunches kale, trimmed and torn
8 bacon strips, diced
2 large onions, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper


In a large saucepan, bring 1 in. of water to a boil. Add kale; cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 teaspoon drippings. In the drippings, saute onions and garlic until onion is tender.

Drain the kale; stir into onion mixture. Add the salt, pepper and reserved bacon; heat through.
