  • 1
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat until hot. Cook shallot in oil about 3 minutes or until softened. Add kale and salt; cook about 3 minutes or until wilted. Add water; cook 2 minutes longer, adding more water if needed. Set aside.
  • 2
    Heat panini grill to medium-high setting. Arrange bread slices on work surface. Spread jelly evenly over one side of each slice of bread (about 1 1/2 teaspoons each). Divide kale mixture evenly among 4 slices of bread; top each with one-fourth of the mozzarella cheese pieces. Gently press remaining bread slices on top of kale, jelly side down. Spray both sides of sandwiches with cooking spray.
  • 3
    Place sandwiches on grill. Close grill; grill 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and grill marks appear. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • Prepare kale mixture up to 1 day ahead, and store covered in the refrigerator. When ready to assemble, heat in microwavable bowl uncovered on High 30 seconds or just until warm. Assemble and grill sandwiches as directed.
