Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 bunch kale
  • 3 ounces Andouille sausage
  • 2 teaspoons oil/fat (for frying sausage)
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup diced Vidalia (sweet) onion
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt + more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 2 fried eggs, cooked to “over medium” (optional)

Instructions

  1. Remove the stems and thick spines from the kale and wash, drain and pat dry thoroughly.

  3. Slice (or dice) the Andouille sausage and sauté in a frying pan on medium-high heat in 2 teaspoons of fat/oil.  Cook sausage for about 5-7 minutes or until much of the fat has been rendered and the sausage crisps up a bit.

  5. Turn the heat to low and add the 1/4 cup of olive oil, the vinegar and the salt and pepper and stir for a few seconds until heated through.
