Great way to prepare a quick and healthy snack. I found a 4lb bag of frozen kale at my local Costco for 3.99 so these will become a staple in my house. I used panko because that's what I had and used half fresh Parmesan and half grated Parmesan. I also chopped the kale more because there were quite a few larger stems. I found my cook time to need an additional 7 to 10 minutes. Good right out of the oven, cold out of the fridge or reheated as a side fir dinner.
Delicious! Great for a snack, appetizer, or side dish. I use fresh parmesan which added a nice bite.
Used these as an appetizer for Thanksgiving, this year. LOVED them! I had a tough time finding frozen Kale, and may make these with all spinach in the future. I sauteed the onion in a couple Tbsp of butter and olive oil, then did not add any more oil. I thawed and drained the spinach and kale together, then mixed them, the onion, and egg together. I mixed the dry ingredients together [minus the sage and oregano - because I was out], and mixed the dry into the wet ingredients. I rolled them into balls, refrigerated them overnight, and baked them Thanksgiving morning. I got 18 balls out of this recipe. Thank you, so much for sharing! *edit* I made another batch of these, and was having issues with them getting stuck in my teeth. I finally figured out that it's the kale stems. My next batch will be all spinach, no kale - which I think will solve this problem. If you are dead set on using kale, I would either run the thawed, drained kale through the food processor - or use fresh, cutting out the tough stems, first...
When I ate one it was way better than I expected them to be. I decided to make this recipe because I needed to get rid of some frozen kale and spinach I bought at costco. The things I changed was I added 2 slices of precooked crumbled bacon and sauteed the onion in the bacon grease with 2 cloves of minced garlic. I think I will now be making these once a month. I also feel they will freeze and reheat well.
I was totally overwhelmed by my farm share veggie share. I didn't want to do kale chips (again!) so was trying to find something different. I don't know how accurately I can review this because I used what I had on hand.... (scapes instead of garlic powder, scallions instead of onions, swiss chard instead of spinach. Fresh everything, nothing was frozen.) They turned out AMAZING. My husband (big meat eater) even compared them to meatballs and he loved them too. I dipped in sour cream (because I'm a big "sauce" person). If I get more kale in this week's veggie share I would certainly make again!
Love it! Use it for a healthy snack or side dish. It's really easy and they last for awhile in the fridge.
These are delicious and even my 2 year old likes them! Great way to get those greens into your diet. I plan on making these for parties!
Funny, just like everybody else has said these are surprisingly good! I was a little skeptical but they're fantastic! Even my 15-month-old daughter likes them! I use almost all Kale (we tend to have great success growing Kale in our garden, too much success!!) and simplify the herb mix, usually just a few like oregano and basil for a more italian taste, this recipe is easily tweaked for your tastes. Delicious!
