Kale Cheddar & Feta Grilled Chee

Hey y'all.

I probably know what you are thinking... what the heck? Kale cheddar and feta grilled cheese?? Super random, I know...but I promise you won't be disappointed.

I would like to consider myself as the leftover queen...which also means I hate wasting food. So when you combine the two characteristics...you get random but delicious recipes.  I just couldn't stand to waste any of the kale I got for my Spicy Turkey and Kale Chili recipe earlier this week. 


Kale Cheddar & Feta Grilled Cheese: 1 sandwich

Ingredient:
  • Two slices of wheat grain bread
  • 1/2 cup of kale
  • 2 slices of sharp cheddar
  • Thin slice of red onion
  • 1 tbsp of feta cheese
  • A splash of red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of butter (or mayo...I'll explain below)

Instructions:

  • Heat up olive oil in a small pan. Once the pan is hot wilt the kale in the pan with a splash of red wine vinegar. Once the kale turns a little brown you can toss the sliced onions in there to cook together.  Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Place the mix into a bowl and place it on the side. Do not turn off the pan once you are finished with the kale and onion - you will need it hot to toast the sandwich on. 
  • Butter one side of both slices of bread. This will crisp up the outside of the sandwich. However, if butter doesn't do the trick then you can use mayo instead (will make it crispier but not burn the outside). Shout out to my friend Kristy for that awesome tip!
  • Layer the cooked kale and onion on the bread...butter or mayo on the outside! Once you place the kale and onion on the bread, sprinkle the feta on top. Place 1-2 slices of cheddar to cover the kale, onion, and feta mix.  Place other slice of bread on top of sharp cheddar. 
  • Pick up the sandwich and place it in the pan. Put a lid on top so it forms a little oven on your stove top. Flip sandwich over after 1-2 minutes and keep flipping till you see the cheese melt.
