2 2/3 cups (1-inch) cubed Yukon gold or red potato (about 1 pound)
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine
3 cups diced onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Sage sprigs (optional)
How to Make It
Bring water to a boil in a Dutch oven; add kale. Cover and cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until tender. Remove kale with a slotted spoon, reserving cooking liquid. Chop kale and set aside.
Add potato to reserved cooking liquid in pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until tender. Drain; partially mash potatoes. Stir in kale and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Preheat oven to 400°.
Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, diced onion, and chopped sage. Cook 13 minutes or until browned. Combine potato mixture, onion mixture, green onions, and pepper. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Divide potato mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Place patties on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes.
Broil patties for 5 minutes or until browned. Garnish with sage sprigs, if desired.
Very yummy and I didn't think that the prep time was that bad as someone else posted but then I was preparing other dishes at the same time so I didn't really notice. I couldn't find organic Yukon or red potatoes so I used organic russet, which seemed fine. I only had enough onion for 2 1/2 cups but it didn't seem to affect the flavor at all. Would definitely make again.
I thought this was a great way to use up extra kale! We had this as a side dish with scallops and asparagus and it was delicious. It did take a little while to make, so next time I might try to make the patties ahead of time for a shorter cook time. Definitely a keeper!
I have been trying out new greens (i.e. swiss chard, kale, etc), and I had a lot of kale leftover from a different recipe, so when this recipe popped up on a word search for 'kale,' I gave it a try with ingredients that I had on hand, and it turned out wonderfully. Note that I skipped the green onions and the sage to save myself a separate trip to the market, and I threw in a few other spices, and it was still quite tasty. I would definitely make this again. It looked and tasted much more gourmet than the effort it took to make them.
this was way to much effort for the results. It tasted good, but too much prep time and mine kind of fell apart and didn't look as pretty as the ones in the photo. Next time, I'll just make mashed potatoes and skip the making patties part...
