Kale with Bacon and Asiago

1 lb. kale
1 lb. bacon
1/2 cup minced onion
1/2 cup thinly sliced Asiago cheese

Wash and chop the kale. Cut the bacon into small pieces and cook slowly in a skillet. When the bacon is crisp, remove it but leave the fat in the pan. Add the chopped onions to the pan and saute in the bacon fat. Add the kale to the pan and cook until it is wilted. When finished, move from the pan into a bowl. Add in the cheese and toss well.

*Johnna’s tip: While at the “library” (*Translation: the D.C. metro…it is freakishly quiet…), we were glad to come across this recipe in today’s Express. We have been looking for a kale recipe that matched our taste buds and this one makes the cut. The Express recipe (*courtesy Tim Hayes & Tom Coen of Whole Foods), however, included raisins (*Yuck) and we are not huge raisin fans when it comes to adding it to our foods…there good separately but not mixed in with the other stuff, in our opinion. Try garnishing with a little more Asiago cheese.
