Kale Recipe – Twice Baked Irish Potatoes

August 24, 2010 at 11:41 am 14 comments

Seeing the post on Kale was so popular, here is a simple

Irish recipe using Kale from Ivy Manning, Food Writer,

showing how her decendants made it into

 a dish for the whole family.  Ivy adds Stout to the onions

 while they are cooking, which adds a rich,

sweet flavour to the ingredients.  It is probably worth

 the time it takes to make, as just watching it makes

 you hungry.  If anyone makes it, let me know!!  Enjoy.

Another wonderful film from

Executive Producer, Rebecca Gerendasy, from

CookingUpAStory fame.

P.S. Lori Gloyd felt so inspired by the post and comments

that she created her own variation to the above recipe

on her blog, take a look!

    Yummmo! I kid you not, my mouth was watering as I watched this. I was thinking how good this would be with a little bacon added to the onion and kale mixture. Oh, heavens!

    Thanks for posting. I am going to try this soon.

      LOL, exactly the same thing happened to me, and I had to go and cook something carb. MMMMMM! Lori, please let me know when you do them. I totally agree on the bacon, I had kale and bacon in white sauce with spelt pancakes recently, and it was DIVINE. Don’t know what’s going on, but Kale is the thing!!

        Kale is a cool season crop, isn’t it? I’m thinking it might be a while before we can get it fresh up here if that is the case. I’ll check it out this weekend when I do my weekly shopping.

      Doesn’t it, Vi. We really need to get together for a Kale party.

    Lori, you can grow it right through. Plant it out and see how you go with it. Lovely.

    I agree with everything everyone said!!! It looks gorgeous!

      Great, Claudia! I knew you would!

    OMGosh you guys – now I’m getting hungry for this again!!

    Here in Oregon kale grows pretty much year round – it just tastes its best in the cooler months due to how it reacts to dropping temperatures. What I like about this recipe – other than it being so yummy! – is you can make it your own so easily. I love the idea of bacon, too. =)) I made this for a potluck once (cut finished potato in half, so there was plenty to go round). It was such a hit, I had to give the recipe as we all dug in!

    Thanks for sharing, Moni. =)
