It’s a good thing the Handsome Husband likes kale, because he’s going to be eating a lot this winter.  I have a feeling a kale cookbook is in my future.  And it’s a good thing too, because we’ll have so much of the crap yummy leafy greens to eat, I think I’ll be able to prepare every single one of the kale recipes all of you have sent in over the past few months.

Yee-Haw, looks like I have a new winter project.


1 large bunch of kale, rinsed,center stem removed, and chopped
3 tablespoons of unsalted butter
3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup milk {I used 2%}
½ cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon unsalted butter to coat baking dish


Saute kale, olive oil, and garlic in a pan until wilted.  Set aside.

Melt butter in a medium saucepan, over medium-low heat. Once melted, slowly whisk in the flower until nice and smooth. Add nutmeg, milk and whipping cream and stir well.  Reduce heat to a simmer until the sauce has thickened a bit {about 2 minutes}.

Add cream cheese and Parmesan cheese and cook until the cheese has melted.

Fold in sauteed kale, salt and pepper, and place the creamed kale mixture in a buttered dish {mine was 5×5 inches wide} and place on a cookie sheet.

Broil on high until the cheese has slightly browned.
