Let's Make It
Brown sausage in large skillet sprayed with cooking spray, stirring occasionally; drain. Return to skillet; add kale. Cook and stir until kale softens, about 3 min. Remove sausage mixture from skillet; set aside.
Use same skillet to prepare stuffing mixes as directed on package. Stir in sausage mixture and nuts.
How to Chop Nuts
Using a chef's knife and holding the tip end down on the cutting board, cut back and forth across the nuts until they are chopped to the desired size.
How to Toast Nuts
Toasting nuts adds crunch and intensifies their flavor. To toast nuts in the oven, spread nuts in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. To toast nuts on the stovetop, place nuts in ungreased skillet. Cook on medium heat until golden brown, stirring frequently. To toast nuts in the microwave, place up to 1 cup of nuts in a microwaveable shallow dish. Microwave on HIGH until fragrant and crisp, stirring every 30 sec.
A member of the cabbage family, kale has heavy-textured elongated dark green leaves with tightly curled edges. Rinse the leaves in cool water, then strip the leaves away from the thick mid-ribs before using as desired.
