Sweet Potato and Kale Chicken Patties

I am not a huge fan of kale by itself.  If it is hidden within other ingredients or chopped up in small amounts in a salad, I can handle it (and its many health benefits).  When I found this recipe, I think I was most intrigued because it looked like something very different.  I remember thinking that it could be a total “flop” as well, not knowing at all what it would taste like.  I also remember thinking, “I’ll just fry them up in bacon grease, and if they’re that bad, maybe they will at least taste like bacon and we can still enjoy them.”  🙂

These do require some in-advance preparation time, which could be a good thing or a bad thing.  If you are a good planner, they could make a good meal that is easy to just throw in the skillet and cook maybe on a late night getting home from work.  If you forget to plan in advance, I’m not sure how it would work out if you don’t let the mixture of ingredients sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
