Sauteed Kale and Sausage

One Serving shown on luncheon sized plate
Shown on luncheon-size plate

This quick dish came about because I had 1/4 pound package of fresh breakfast sausage in the fridge sitting today at eye level.  Adding just 3 other ingredients made for a wonderful and delicious lunch today.  I couldn’t talk the hubs into sharing this with me (he’s not as fond of greens as I am).  It was so good, I had no trouble at all finishing it off and decided it was worthy of uploading to the blog.  🙂   This recipe is suitable for all phases of Atkins, Keto diets, Primal and Paleo as well.

4 oz. breakfast sausage, crumbled large

2 oz. onion, slivered large

1 c. chopped kale (or 2 leaves, stemmed and chopped)

1 oz. red bell pepper, slivered small

Dash salt and black pepper

DIRECTIONS:   Brown the sausage until no longer pink.  Add onion and saute until it, too, is tender and browned to your liking.  Add red pepper and kale and saute just until they are soft.  Overcooking kale will make it both strong and somewhat bitter, so don’t do that to your kale.  sprinkle the mixture with a dash of salt and coarse black pepper and serve.
