Method

In a large skillet, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium-high heat until hot.

Add kale, garlic, salt and pepper. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until kale begins to wilt, about 5 minutes.

Uncover, reduce heat to medium and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until kale is very soft, about 5 minutes.

Arrange 4 bread slices on a work surface. Top each with one slice of cheese, an even layer of the kale, another slice of cheese, and then a piece of bread.

Brush both sides of each sandwich with remaining olive oil.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.

Place stacked sandwiches in the pan and cook until bread is golden brown and cheese has melted, pressing flat with a spatula occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Serve immediately. Depending on the size of your skillet, you might need to cook these in batches. If so, the first batch can be kept warm in a 200°F oven while finishing the second batch.
