You can make this one healthier by using turkey sausage, turkey bacon and skim milk. I'm wondering if there'd be a better leaf to use than kale? Seems a little bitter. I've never actually done this one myself yet but plan to soon!

Additional Comments:
Betsy - If you want a leaf that's less bitter than kale, I'd try Swiss Chard. :)
