    this came out awesome! i changed a few things. im a vegetarian so no bacon, added chopped onion and garlic, mixed Swiss cheese with cheddar and used 1/4C heavy cream instead of milk. also make sure to cover crust edges with foil so it doesn't brown too much. great recipe amd great idea for the cream cheese!!  -  06 Jun 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe! I used Neufchatel instead of cream cheese and skipped the bacon. I only had buttermilk on hand, so I used a quarter cup buttermilk and a quarter cup water. Turned out very well! Will definitely make this again.  -  29 Jul 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The only thing I did differently was Saute the kale until it wilted. I was worried it would all fit, there was a lot of kale. It came out amazing!! We all loved it. Great use for my home grown kale. Thank you!  -  07 Jun 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
