Before I moved to Florida, kale was not something that I purchased. Ever. I always assumed that it was bitter and that I would not like it. Had I stayed out west, I might have kept that attitude for the rest of my life. However, here in the southeast part of the United States, kale is a staple. It is sold fresh, frozen and even canned. Greens are everywhere.I could not resist trying it fresh and frozen. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. So now, I buy bags of frozen baby kale and I substitute it for spinach all the time. My kids don’t even know.
This kale and potato casserole is a result of my looking in the freezer and seeing that I had half a bag of kale that needed to be used. Paired with potatoes and cheese, this was a delectable side dish. I will definitely be making it again.
