After making fresh creamed spinach, I wanted to try some kale. I love how it has a more delicate flavor than spinach. I thought since I love mushrooms that I would put them in with the kale. Of course, onions & garlic are a must and I had some bacon still in the refrig and I couldn't resist. Love the turmeric with this dish, as I had read that it is very good for you and so I thought I would try it with the kale too. My Dad loved this Kale and looks forward to having it again.

Such a wonderfully savory side dish! This recipe reminded me a bit of the spinach salad with hot bacon dressing that my grandma used to make... only modernized to the max! Enjoy. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Fried Kale with Mushrooms and Bacon

Step-by-Step

  1. Fry up the bacon and then set aside. Sauté the onions in oil and butter for a few minutes and then add your mushrooms. Let them cook down for 5 minutes and then add your chopped up kale, garlic, vinegar and turmeric. Cover with a lid for about 30 minutes on a medium heat; stirring occasionally.
  2. Give it a stir 2 or 3 times while waiting for kale to cook down. I added a 1/4 cup of water because it seemed too dry in the pan. Crumble your bacon and add to your pan. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
