Directions

Begin by preheating the oven to 350°F.

Next, cook the bacon in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat until it gets nice and crispy. Once the bacon is done cooking, transfer the slices to a paper towel-lined plate and let them cool.

When the bacon has cooled, crumble or slice it and set it aside.

In the same skillet, reduce the heat to medium-low and add the diced Onion, sautéing for about 5 minutes.

Now, working in batches, add the kale and cook it down until the whole 1 lb bag has been added.

Add the garlic and pour the wine and vinegar, stirring to combine thoroughly. Simmer the mixture for about 4-5 minutes.

Remove the skillet from the heat.

Incorporate the remaining ingredients by stirring them in until everything is well combined.

Lastly, bake the Asiago Kale Dip for 30 minutes, then set the oven to broil for about 1 – 1 1/2 minutes.

Remove the skillet, add the crumbled bacon on top, and serve with Pita Chips, Pita Bread, or Naan.

In Conclusion

If you want to switch up your appetizer game, this Amazing Asiago Kale Dip with Bacon is the dip for you.

The flavors of Fontina and Asiago pair perfectly together. Combined with Kale and Smokey Bacon, that makes for a full-flavored dip different from any other.
