Food Fun Friday- Kale Krisps

This is probably the most interesting recipe I've made yet.   I do believe it is an acquired taste!
It is also sooooooo EaSy
Wash and tear (I cut the hard stem off) about 4 leaves (as shown above on a cookie sheet),making sure they are bite size pieces, (more about that later). Drizzle with Olive Oil.
Sprinkle with salt (I used garlic salt).
Cook in oven 400 degrees for about 15 minutes untill crispy and slightly brown.
They are now the consistency of very thin potato chips!  They will crunch in your mouth (and also in your hand and all over the counter!!)    They taste pretty good!
Mr Produce ate most of them, he LOVED THEM.... I liked them.  But they really need to be eaten with something else or you do get that 'green veggie' taste in your mouth (like farts.. you know what I mean).

All in all, it is a GREAT way to eat your greens and tastes pretty yummy, WAY better than raw Kale!

I'd be willing to taste one, but kale scares me for some reason!

Hello. I was reading the comments from Cherie's blog and noticed you said you lived/grew up in HMB? My husbands family lived in El Granda. All the kids went to HMB High School from 70's to early 80's. When did you live there? You may know them. Last name Hopkins. All the kids moved away with mom passing away in 1999 andh dad passing in 2006.

Nice to meet you. Small world.
