Cheddar, Kale and Garlic Grilled Cheese
This was supposed to be a panini, but I didn't have a panini press so I decided to make a grilled cheese out of it. I had all of the ingredients for this in my pantry already and I also had kale leftover from another recipe. This is a great way to use leftover kale. Somehow I always end up with way too much and then have trouble using it before it goes bad.
Recipe from Panini Happy.
-1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
-1 shallot, thinly sliced
-1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
-1 pound kale, rinsed, stems removed and roughly chopped
-1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
-4 slices oat nut bread
-4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, sliced
Heat the oil in a skillet. Saute the kale with the seasoning, apple cider vinegar and garlic. To build the grilled cheese, melt a ridiculous amount of butter in a skillet. Add cheese to the bread, a good serving of kale. Top with the other slice of bread and cook until golden brown on each side.
