How to cook:
  1. Boil
  2. Fill a large stockpot with salted water and bring it to a boil (it should be enough water to cover the kale). Add the kale to the pot and boil it until it begins to wilt, roughly 3-5 minutes. Immediately drain the pot into a colander and rinse the kale with cold water until it is fully cooled. Set aside.
  3. Saute
  4. Heat the butter in a large non-stick frying pan or skillet over medium-low heat. Once melted, add the onion and garlic and saute until fragrant and the onion is translucent or 8-10 minutes.
  5. Season
  6. Add the seasonings (salt, ground black pepper, and ground nutmeg) to your pan and stir gently. Next, add the all-purpose flour. Mix it in until it becomes a paste-like consistency. Saute the flour paste for 2-3 minutes, continuing to mix occasionally, to cook off the taste of the flour. Then, slowly pour in the half & half while whisking and bring to a boil.
  7. Melt
  8. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and stir in the cream cheese and mozzarella. Continue stirring for about 5 minutes until all the cheese is smooth, melted, and thickened.
  9. Chop
  10. Using your hands, squeeze the rinsed kale until you've removed as much water as possible. Transfer the kale to a cutting board and roughly chop it into strips that are between ½-inch and ¾-inch in width.
  11. Serve
  12. Add the chopped kale and Parmesan cheese to the pan, stirring to break up the kale and melt the Parmesan. Once the kale is warmed through and the cheese is melted, remove from heat and serve immediately.

Cook time: 30 minutes
Prep time: 10 minutes
Yields: 6 servings
Cuisine: American
Number of ingredients: 10
Ingredients:
  • 3 lbs kale (roughly 3 to 5 large bunches), stems removed and leaves roughly chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temp
  • 8 ounces grated fontina cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
How to cook:
  1. In a large bowl, add the kale and 1/2 cup of olive oil and season with salt. Massage the kale for 2-3 minutes so it starts to wilt and shrink.
  2. Heat the remaining olive oil in a LARGE pot or Dutch oven. Add the kale in batches, stirring to wilt until all the kale has been added. Cover the pot and cook on medium-low, stirring every few minutes, until the kale is soft, about 30 minutes. Add the vinegar and stir to combine. If the kale starts to brown, reduce heat to low and continue to cook.
  3. While the kale is cooking, melt the butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add the panko bread crumbs and season with salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Stir and sauté until the bread crumbs are golden-brown, about 3 minutes. Stir in the lemon zest and remove from the heat.
  4. Add the cream cheese in small pieces and into the kale, while still over low heat. Stir the cream cheese until it's melted into the kale. Add the fontina, lemon juice and heavy cream and combine for about 1 minute until the fontina is melted. Transfer the kale mixture to a serving bowl and sprinkle the toasted panko over the top to serve.
