    This recipe is v labour intensive. I needed two frying pans a grill and a hot plate for accompaniments. It tasted all right but I won't be making it again. Didn't see point of grilling kale! New one to me. Would prefer it boiled with v little water, butter and pepper. And sausages are better grilled not boiled. Sorry!

    This dish was so tasty & easy to make. Will be making again. The crispy kale is a great idea, tasty & can be used on other dishes too . Thanks M&S

    Really tasty, and we loved the crispy Kale - I added a little Parmesan while grilling it which was really nice. Definitely more liquid than was necessary though.
