This has become my families favorite fast food. We buy sugar free bacon ends in 1 pound packages from US Wellness meats online, and then we only use a 1/2 pound at a meal for frugality. But it is plenty for this recipe :)

How to Make Bacon Fried Kale (Paleo)


  • 1Chop bacon into very small bite-size pieces (1/2 inch diameter) Cook over medium heat in a large skillet.
  • 2Chop onions, garlic, ginger and add to the bacon when it is about half-way cooked.
  • 3Add chopped carrot, celery, and shredded sweet potato one at a time stirring after each addition.
  • 4Continue to cook and stir, scraping the bottom of the pan to keep the sweet potato from sticking- until the carrot begins to soften. If there is not enough bacon grease you may need to add some coconut or grapeseed oil.
  • 5Add chopped kale, let it steam on top of the mixtures while you add your spices, and nuts, seeds, and fruit, a few minutes, then begin to stir it into the mixture in the pan. Work slowly so that the kale doesn't flip out of the pan as you stir. The kale will wilt more and more as it becomes covered with the oils.
  • 6When the kale is all wilted and everything is mixed well its done. Serve hot.
