Sausage, White Bean, and Kale Skillet

Serves 4


1 can white beans, drained

3-4 sweet Italian pork sausage, remove casing (or around 1 lb of the ground stuff)

kale, shredded

1 lemon

olive oil

optional: top with fried eggs, parmesan cheese, and hot pepper flakes


Drain and rinse one can of white beans (great northern or cannellini).

Remove the sweet Italian sausages from their casings and crumble into a nonstick skillet with some olive oil over medium-high heat, breaking up any large pieces with a fork.

When sausage is almost cooked through, about five minutes, add beans and toss until warm. If the beans and sausage get dry, add a splash of white wine or chicken stock.

Add a big handful of shredded kale until slightly wilted.

Top with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, shaved Parmesan, a squeeze of lemon, and crushed red pepper flakes, if you crave some heat.

Optional: top with fried or poached eggs.


That's it! Have your ingredients ready to go, because you'll be surprised how quickly this meal comes together. It's a favorite around here, and is always a hit when made for friends.


Happy cooking!
