Check out what our friends from Country Living have to say about this recipe:

“Instead of the expected spinach, kale delivers iron-rich goodness in an irresistibly gooey casserole.”

You can still try this recipe with spinach if you want just like what I did. However, you will not be disappointed if you stick with kale. Kale provides a new flavor in this rich dish and you can’t resist it.



  • 4 bunch kale
  • 1½ large Vidalia onions
  • 6 tbsp. Land O Lakes butter
  • 1¼ tsp. Morton salt
  • ¾ tsp. McCormick Freshly ground pepper
  • 5 tsp. Gold MEDAL all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ c. white wine
  • 1½ c. Borden heavy cream
  • 1 c. Borden milk
  • ¾ tsp. lemon zest
  • ½ tsp. McCormick ground nutmeg
  • .13 tsp. McCormick cayenne pepper
  • 2 c. Sargento grated Parmesan cheese



  1. In a 3-quart pot over high heat, bring 2 1/2 quarts water to a boil. Working in 2 batches, blanch kale for 30 seconds. Transfer each batch to a colander and let drain until cool. Squeeze kale to remove excess water, then chop roughly and reserve.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, cook onions, butter, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and freshly ground pepper, stirring frequently, until onions are soft and caramelized, about 25 minutes. Add flour and stir. Add wine and bring to a simmer. Add cream, milk, zest, nutmeg, and cayenne, and simmer for 2 more minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups cheese, reserved kale, and remaining salt, and stir to combine.
  3. Pour kale mixture into a 2 1/2-quart baking dish and sprinkle on remaining cheese. Bake until bubbling and brown, 45 to 50 minutes. Serve immediately.
