Great recipe! I used Neufchatel instead of cream cheese and skipped the bacon. I only had buttermilk on hand, so I used a quarter cup buttermilk and a quarter cup water. Turned out very well! Will definitely make this again. Read More

The only thing I did differently was Saute the kale until it wilted. I was worried it would all fit, there was a lot of kale. It came out amazing!! We all loved it. Great use for my home grown kale. Thank you! Read More

As a long time quiche maker, I sauteed 2 cloves of garlic & onion with the kale & added broccoli florets. Use the same amount of cheese blended, 1/2 swiss & 1/2 cheddar. A dash of hot sauce & 1/8 tsp nutmeg ( it highlights the blend of cheeses with the egg). Fantastic! I had just fried some bacon & wilted the greens in the grease, when I came upon this recipe, WHAT LUCK! Read More

This was really good! Only changes I made was I omitted the bacon and added 1 chopped Leek. My husband and kids really loved it and it was super easy to make. Read More

Delicious! Nearly doubled the kale and it was no problem. I did take another reviewer’s suggestion and steamed it quickly (in the microwave) before placing it in the crust- then mixed and added the other ingredients on top. Big hit! Read More

I had a taste for a quick and easy quiche. I kale as I am not a spinach fan and decided to give it a try. I didn't have any cream cheese so I substituted it with 1/4 cup of heavy cream. Added some finely chopped onion and bacon pieces. A little personal seasonal I like and put it all together. Waalah it came out fantastic. May even try a phyllo dough crust. Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

Loved this! I added 1/2 a diced onions and sauted them with the chopped kale first in olive oil, then I put that mixture through my food processor. I also used a few different types of cheeses (Swiss and Mexican Blend). We all loved this recipe. Read More

I weighed out the kale and after mixing it into the rest of the ingredients, I realized something was wrong. There was so much of the mixture, that I had to double the cream cheese, milk, eggs, cheese and bacon to make it look even close to being quiche-like. I'm not sure exactly how much kale there's supposed to be, and reading the other reviews wasn't helpful. The quiches did turn out very yummy and I had plenty for several days. I'll definitely make this again, but place about 1/2 of the kale in it. LOL Read More
