Sauteed Kale and Bacon!

The other day we had dinner at a great restaurant here in Wilmington called RX. Along with my meal, was this kale dish with beans and bacon. It was one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten. That got me thinking about Kale.

Kale seems all the rage now. People are juicing it and cooking it and blah blah blah. After my Kale side dish at RX, I thought I should try making something with Kale. I decided that the best thing to make with anything is bacon. So here is my version of Kale and Bacon.

I used a pack of Kale. I should have used 2. About 6 slices of bacon and 2 cloves garlic. 

Fry up the bacon.

Take the bacon out and drain. Saute the garlic in the bacon fat. Yum! 

Add the Kale and saute. 

Once the kale is wilted add the bacon and a little salt and pepper. 


That's it and it was delicious. Of course, you can also use another green leaf veggie but kale is quite tasty and, supposedly, it is great for you. I am not sure with bacon but bacon makes everything better. 

Buen Provecho! 


  1. This looks like a great dish, I never would have thought about pairing the two, but it definitely sounds good.

  2. I never tried kale before and I guess everything goes good with bacon, lol. Just wanted to know if kale has a bitter taste to it?

  3. OK, well, this time it showed it will be visible after approval. Last time, google kept opening up, twice. I do want to test this out for my kids and thinking I would like it also

  4. This looks awesome, i would put this on top of some grilled chicken. Awesome & quick, love it!

  5. I have never in my entire half century of living had kale. But as a dark green, leafy veggie I'm sure that it is good for you. Kinda look and cooks like spinach...which is also better with bacon!

  6. Sounds good !!! I like spinach and bacon , yummy .

  7. I haven't tasted kale. This looks tasty. Thanks for the recipe.

  8. This looks absolutely AMAZING! Officially pinned.
