Kale with Bacon and Onion

Kale with Bacon and Onion by car2ngrl

I received a couple bunches of kale and didn't know what to do with it. But then I found Barney's recipe and made a few changes based on what's in my pantry.

VERDICT: I served this to the kids and they loved it!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 2 strips bacon, rough chopped
  • 1/2-3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 bunches of kale, cut out stems and rough chop
Serves 2


use large pot with cover

heat olive oil over med-low heat

add bacon cook for a few minutes and then add onion

cook bacon and onion for about 10 more minutes until bacon is crispy and onions start to carmelize

raise the heat and add kale turning kale until covered in oil and bacon fat and starts to wilt

add 1/2 cup of chicken broth and scrap bottom of pan to release any bacon bits

reduce hit slightly and cover cooking for 10-15 minutes or more adding more broth if the kale drys/until kale is dark green and soft.

about 30 minutes
