Curly Kale Frittata

A wonderfully-easy entrée!

Ingredients:
1 bunch curly kale, leaves separated from thick ribs and cut crosswise into wide strips
¼ cup olive oil
3 garlic cloves, sliced paper thin
8 large eggs
¼-½ cup Grana-style cheese, grated
Sea salt

Method:
1. Heat olive oil and garlic in a broiler-proof nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 3 minutes, or until garlic is soft and fragrant. Add kale, by the handful, tossing to coat leaves with the oil. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, or until kale is completely wilted and tender. Season with ½ teaspoon salt.

2. Preheat oven broiler, positioning oven rack about 4-6 inches from heat.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, Grana and an additional ½ teaspoon salt. Slowly pour egg mixture over greens. Cook eggs over medium-low heat without stirring for 8 minutes, or until almost set.

4. Transfer skillet to broiler and broil for 2-3 minutes, or until top of frittata is browned. (Check often to make sure it does not burn.) Remove and let sit 1-2 minutes before slicing into wedges and serving.
