Lightly butter and spray a 9×13 baking dish or deep 9×9 dish. Spread about 1/2 the batter over the bottom, spreading with small spatula. Then top with kale filling, smear the rest of batter on top of kale mixture, don’t worry if the chard gets mixed in while spreading.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown, if using a 9×9 pan, time will be around 20 minutes. Bake until toothpick comes out clean. Top with fresh Parmesan cheese shredded.

If you cook too long and it is dry just drizzle some chicken broth on the dish and it will be moist again. Eat warm or at room temperature.
