Healthy Cooking Tips:
It is important to chop kale fine so it cooks in a shorter amount of time and allows its flavor to integrate with the other flavors. Also, make sure you break up the clumps of meat with a spoon while sautéing. This will also allow the flavor of the meat to seep into the other ingredients. Use a stainless steel skillet as close to 9-10 inches as possible so the vegetables don't overcook and you have some height to your frittata.
