Prepare Time: 15 minutes Servings: 8 servings Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • 2 pounds fresh Kentucky Proud kale, collards or other greens
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 hard-boiled Kentucky Proud eggs, chopped
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
Wash greens well, cleaning each leaf and removing stems and coarse ribs. Cook greens in enough boiling water to keep from cooking dry about 15 minutes. Drain. Melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth. Add milk. Cook over medium heat with constant stirring, until mixture comes to a boil. Add cheese, salt and pepper. Stir until cheese is melted. Mix in chopped hard-boiled eggs and greens. Place in a greased casserole ( 1 1/2 or 2 quart). Toss crumbs with melted butter. Sprinkle on top of greens mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
