Cheese and Kale bread: some considerations

This kale bread is in season, rustic and full of taste.

Usually I made it with a whole flour.
As cheese I suggest Swiss cheese or Cheddar but you are free to choose your fav. Only it has to be easy to melt.

The beauty of this bread, besides the amazing flavor, is it’s all mixed in one bowl and no waiting around for it to rise!

It works well for a week if you preserve it covered and, after some days, into the fridge.

If you serve it yet warm, I’m sure it will finished in a hurry. Otherwise, I cut many slices of Kale bread and I just toast them few minutes before to place on a large dish to share with my family or guests.

I love this bread as one dish where combine 1-2 slices of it with a in season side or salad aside. But also I share kale bread on the aperitivo table. This time with a glass of red wine 😉
