olive oil

3 oz

bacon (cut into small pieces, about 2/3 cup)


onion (diced)

10 oz

Earthbound Farm Organic Kale (2 5-ounce packages)

1 tsp


2 Tbsp


1 tsp


¼ tsp

black pepper

¾ cup

whole milk

½ cup

bread crumbs (optional)


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and bacon, stirring occasionally. When the bacon is crispy add baby kales, paprika, flour, salt and pepper. Cook until greens begin to soften, add milk, and continue cooking 5 minutes.
