Official Contest Entry: Simply Potatoes 5Fix. I enjoy this recipe because you can combine your vegetable and starch components into one dish. This recipe came from trying to use leftover mashed potatoes. I always have reserved bacon drippings that I keep in my refrigerator but butter can be substituted.
- 1 large onion
- 1 bunch kale (any type)
- 1⁄3 cup bacon drippings or 1⁄3 cup butter
- 1 (24 ounce) package Simply Potatoes Garlic Mashed Potatoes
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
