Kale Chips

Kale!  What up?  Well, if you’re from the South, you and Kale probably kick it with bacon drippings, onions and vinegar.  Or maybe you’ve never even glanced at kale in the produce aisle.  Regardless of whether you have enjoyed kale soaked in bacon grease or if you’ve never tried it….you NEED to try kale chips.  Yes, I said kale chips!  They are crispy, they are tasty and they are pretty stinkin good for you too!  Kale packs a great dose of vitamin A, B complex, C, iron and calcium!  Hey, this is a lot more fun than a multi-vitamin.  My daughter, for some reason, will only eat this if I feed it to her….she doesn’t like to touch it!

Kale Chips

  • 1 Bunch of Kale
  • 1 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Kosher Sea Salt

Thoroughly wash and dry the kale.  Remove the tough stems and tear into “chip” sized pieces.

Toss the kale with the oil and salt.

Place the kale in an even layer on a large roasting pan, use two pans if needed.

Roast at 325 degrees for 10 minutes.  It’s very important to watch the kale closely in the last minute.  You want it to just barely brown on the edges and be crisp.  This is a very fine line and can change in a matter of seconds!

The kale will shrink up and turn into a crispy treat.

Kale chips are a perfect snack and a perfect side dish for a grilled cheese sandwich!

  1. Kale chips are one of my favorite snacks and so easy to make!

  2. I have never had this, but absolutely cannot wait to make it and I am sure LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

  3. I’ve only seen kale chips that were fried on Iron Chef America but the idea of roasting them is absolutely brilliant (and much more healthy). I have to admit, that I do like the bacon drippings, onions and vinegar though. Let’s hear it for the south!
