  • 1 bundle of kale
  • 1-1 A? tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. First, cut out the spines (thick, white center) from each kale leaf. Itai??i??s easiest if you fold theAi??leaves vertically and cut from top to bottom

    Noooo, why are you cutting me 🙁

  3. Rinse thoroughly in cold water

    I’m clean now!

  4. Pat all leaves dry with paper towels
  5. Cut or break apart leaves to desired size, keeping in mind they will shrink while baking

    Ready to bake!

  6. Place all leaves into a mixing bowl
  7. Add 1 to 1 A? tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  8. Add a pinch or two of salt
  9. Toss kale, oil and salt together until all leaves have an even coat
  10. Spread kale onto ungreased baking trays, leaving space between each leaf
  11. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until crispy.


If they arenai??i??t devoured within the hour, store in an air-tight container or Ziploc bag 🙂

Make sure its deep enough

STEP 2: Prepare your vegetables

Mince up that pepper, onion, and garlic cloves. I use a food processor, but you can use a chef’s knife or invest in one of those convenient food choppers that cost around $20. Throw the ingredients in a strainer to reduce some of the water.

STEP 3: Prepare your cheese

You can buy cheese in blocks like I did and use a grater, or go about this the BRO way and buyAi??shredded cheese from the grocery store.

2014-02-16 23.25.36

3 types of cheese – sharp cheddar, white cheddar, and pepper jack

Rub it on the grater #thatswhatcheesesaid

Rub it on the grater until there’s nothing left #thatswhatcheesesaid

STEP 4: Ready the Bacon

Take a large stock pot, turn up the heat to medium, and throw in 5 slabs of bacon, chopped into 1 inch by 1 inch bites. Feel free to cook more than 5 – you can’t ever have enough bacon. Once it’s cooked, take the bacon out and drain on a paper towel – be sure to leave some of that awesome grease in the pot to build a base of bacony-flavor for the soup!

Hell yeah BRO!

STEP 4: Cook the Veggies, add butter and flour

Toss in your garlic, pepper, and onions. Let these cook until transluscent bro. (about 8 mins). Then toss in the butter, and once that’s melted – throw in the flour and stir.

STEP 5: Get your bread bowl ready

Take your bread bowl and put some olive oil on the inside of the bowl, and on the underside of the top. Throw it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until the bread has hardened. #thatswhatcheesesaid

Oil it up and throw it in the oven until its hard

STEP 5: Add BEER! (2 cups). Let the alcohol cook off (about 5 mins.) Ai??After, toss in the half and half. It helps to make it creamy. #thatswhatcheesesaid
