I’m not sure you could convince any child (or most adults) that barbecue kale chips are better than Halloween candy, but calling them Zombie Skin sure can’t hurt the cause. I initially tried using seaweed paper, but that didn’t taste too hot. This title sure is gonna sound weird once it’s past Halloween. I guess I could also call it Barbecued Dinosaur Skin — The O.G. paleo snack.
- 2 bunches of Lacinato (also called Dinosaur) kale
- 1/2 cup or so of BBQ sauce
Preheat your oven to 350ºF.
I was being lazy and didn’t cut out the stems off the kale leaves, you should do it, but it won’t kill anyone if you don’t.
Lay kale leaves, in a single layer, on a baking sheet and brush with barbecue sauce. Don’t be too generous with the sauce, the thicker you slather it on, the longer the leaves will take to crisp up.
Bake until the leaves are crispy, about 20-25 minutes. Make sure to keep your eyes on these, as the sauce may burn if you’re not watching out.
