Can I have your recipe for kale chips? Dee

Of course!  It’s not so much an exact recipe, but here’s what I do:

You’ll need:

1 bunch of kale
olive oil (either in a bottle for drizzling or in a mister for spraying)
kosher salt
shredded parmesan cheese (if you don’t have the real stuff you can use the shaker cheese)

So, you wash the kale and shake it dry. Then you take a small knife (like a paring knife) and cut the stem away from the leaf part on the kale leaves. This isn’t essential, but the stem is kind of hard and chewy so in my opinion it’s not “good eats”. Then you tear the leaves into bite sized pieces. Spread them on an even layer on a baking sheet (you’ll probably be able to fill two baking sheets with one bunch of kale). Then you either drizzle or spray them with the olive oil. Misting is much healthier cause you end up using a lot less oil. So if you’re drizzling, just keep in mind that you don’t really need that much olive oil.  Just use a little and then kind of mix the leaves up with your hands to help coat all the leaves. Then sprinkle on some kosher salt, and then sprinkle on the cheese.  Then bake the kale for about ten minutes. I think I do four hundred degrees, but basically just bake them till they crisp up and start to brown around the edges, cause you want them to be really dry (like a potato chip).  Hope that helps; healthy eating!
