This is definitely a unique way to use up kale from the garden. Be sure to squeeze the kale well to remove all the water. Thanks for sharing!

I should have drained the kale much more after boiling it, and maybe even patted it dry because our patties were very loose. But they tasted good, and even my kale-disliking family ate them. It probably helped that I added a homemade cheese sauce.
