Kale Stuffed Baked Potatoes

You might think this is an unlikely combination, but it is almost better than the classic baked potato topped with all the usual fixin’s of butter, sour cream, bacon bits and chives.


If you want cheese, add some slices inside the baked potato then fill with fresh kale pesto. KaleStuffedPotato2
