  • 4 medium kale leaves, stems removed
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar

Cook 1½ minutes or until bread begins to brown. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon Parmesan on 1 bread slice in pan. Top with 1 kale leaf, one-fourth of onion mixture, and about ¼ cup raclette. Top with other toasted bread slice. Transfer sandwich to a baking sheet. Repeat procedure with remaining 6 bread slices, Parmesan, 3 kale leaves, onion mixture, and raclette. Bake sandwiches at 300° for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
