Kale, Spinach and Bacon Saute

Whipped up this deliciousness for a late breakfast today (1 in the afternoon) and it turned out so well, I wanted to share it with you all!  Super quick and easy to make!

Kale, Spinach and Bacon Saute


4 strips of bacon
1 bunch of Kale, stalks removed and chopped
1 bunch of spinach, roughly chopped
2 stalks of celery, sliced
1/2 an onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar

In a large saute pan, cook bacon on medium heat to your liking.  For dishes like this, I prefer the bacon cooked soft, but if you like it crispy, it wouldn't lose its awesomeness.

Set cooked bacon aside and saute onion in leftover bacon fat for two minutes on medium heat.  You can add a few tablespoons of water to loosen up any bacon goodness stuck on the bottom and this will also prevent the onion from burning (If at any time you find your saute drying out, just add some water or stock). 

Add garlic and then celery for another minute.  Stir in your chopped kale and apple cider vinegar and allow to cook.  When the kale is wilted, mix in the chopped spinach and remove from heat.

Your bacon should be well cooled by now so chop it up nicely and throw it in to the pan.  Amazing on its own or as a side.
