1 lb. kale or Swiss chard
2 lbs. baking potatoes

Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 c. breadcrumbs

Wash greens and remove tough ribs. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil; add greens, cover and cook over medium heat until tender (about 10 minutes for kale, 5 minutes for chard). Drain, rinse, cool, and chop. Peel potatoes, dice and brig to boil in salted water. Cook 5 minutes. Prick sausages, add to potatoes and continue to cook until potatoes are tender. Remove sausages and drain potatoes. Mash potatoes and greens together; season with salt and pepper. Butter a casserole dish and spread in the potato mixture.

Bake casserole until heated thoroughly, about 30 minutes. Makes 4-6 servings.
