Reviews for Kale with Bacon
"Who isn't going to like anything with bacon? This was a home-run with everyone in my family. I used 1/2 of an onion as that was all I had. I also cooked the kale in beef broth. Used probably too much of the bacon grease, will back off a little next time. Great flavor. Will definitely make this again."
"Great recipe! The bacon even tempted two male veggie haters to eat kale. I used two small bunches of kale and six strips of bacon (which was more than enough bacon). I also used olive oil to cook the onions and garlic, since I don't use bacon drippings."
"My new favorite Kale recipe!"
"Fantastic recipe! I used more drippings and a few more strips of bacon. YUM!"
"I liked this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly."
"I made this dish and it was very good. I cooked the kale in veggie stock not water."
"I added a little balsamic vinegar and it sure was great."
