Bacon, Butternut Squash and Kale Bread Pudding

Kale. I hate it. I really do. One of the reasons why I hate it is that some people have said that kale is as trendy as bacon! What nonsense! And one time, I was at a party where someone had made some “crispy kale chips” and told me: “Try these. They’re just as good as bacon.” Needless to say, they were NOT just as good as bacon!!

You might be thinking, “So why’d you make a recipe using kale if you hate it so much??” Because, I was tricked into eating it. It’s true. A fellow Bacon Today staff member got me to eat kale by adding it to this bread pudding. The kale is cooked in the bacon fat, and with all the bacon, cheese, and bread that’s also in this dish, then yeah, I’m able to admit that kale is not as bad as I thought it was.

So even if you’re as anti-kale as I was, give this recipe a try. This hearty, savory bread pudding is best enjoyed with a glass of white wine or a bottle of lager or even hard cider.
