Kickin' Collard Greens Recipe
If you like greens you will love this recipe. The bacon and onions give them a wonderful flavor. Add more red pepper for a little more spice.
A classic recipe for collard greens that uses smoked turkey to add some flavor. Greens are simmered in chicken stock, then spiced with a dash of red chile flakes.
There's more than one way to enjoy this soul food staple.
Don't throw away those hearty green leaves that top fresh bundles of beets! They have a flavor similar to kale. This simple recipe will will help you make the most of your fresh beets!
If you like greens, you're gonna LOVE this recipe! The only change I made was to add more bacon... only 3 slices of bacon??? Are you kidding me??? I think I at least doubled that!!! I let mine simmer for nearly an hour and they came out perfect! This recipe works just as well with turnip greens or mustard greens too. Whatever is fresh at your grocery that day will do just fine. I could seriously eat these once or twice a week and not get tired of it... Soooo Good!!
I'd never eaten or cooked collard greens and was hesitant to do so! This recipe made those collards so unbelievably delicious I took it the produce manager at my super market so he could share it with his customers! The whole family loved it!
I have been voted as the chair person for the vegetable dish for Black History month at work, and needed a recipe. I am a true collard fan, and have always tried the five star recipes and have never been disappointed. WHOA! Best greens I have had and can't believe I cooked them. Only made a couple of changes which include I cut out the olive oil and used the bacon grease. I also used plenty of bacon (about a pound, as I love the flavor) and although skeptical, I added about 1 TBS. of brown sugar. These greens are wonderful--I can hardly wait to cook them for my workgroup! THANKS for SHARING.
