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.
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!
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.
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!
The herbs really make this tasty! I add 1 cup of cooked Quinoa and 1/2 cup of finely chopped red bell pepper with 2 cloves of garlic (slightly cooked). My 7 year old son eats them and so does my husband. I make these every month but also use fresh spinach and kale.
I have to give this recipe 5 stars just because it make Kale and Spinach taste pretty good. These are different from what you normally find but they are one heck of healthy snack even with the added ingredients. After reading one of the reviews that said they were good cold I had to try. Yes they are good cold too.
