This recipe was soooo delicious! My husband loved them! I will definitely be making this again!
Oooooohhhh yesss! This is a winner! I used only a teaspoon and a half of sugar. I also didn’t have any hot sauce on hand. But it still came out delicious!! Do your self a favor and try this recipie!
GRRRRRRRRRREAT RECIPE! Doubled the garlic (I’m Eyetalian), used good peppered bacon, and I got one nice side dish for my roasted chicken tonight!
Really good! I would recommend pulling the bacon out after it is browned. Then I would add it back in at the end to avoid it getting soggy and losing flavor. Will make this again!
I added a little liquid smoke. ! Fabulous!!
Excellent. 2 bunches of collards weighted about 1.25 pounds do halved the recipe. I used 2 slices turkey bacon for 1/2 recipe.
My New Years day tradition handed down from my grandmother to my mother to me is Black eyed peas and collard greens. I don’t think they had a “recipe” and i try new ones each year. i added a dash of liquid smoke, and used ham instead of bacon. Delicious.
Excellent! Tangy, healthy, freezes well
Best collard recipe I’ve tried!
What a great recipe! A great balance of sweet and tangy.
This is definitely the way to make good collard greens. I started making them this way after my daughter visited New Orleans and told me about them.
Easy, had all ingredients on hand all time. Just go buy collards and cook ‘em up. My favorite recipe; taste like how my Mom cooked collards while growing up. Delicious! Cooking for one so I downsized recipe and was still good. Will definitely cook again!
These came out EXCELLENT! I admit, I tweaked the vinegar a bit as I LOVE very vinegar-y recipes and I also added more hot sauce. I also cut up and added two hearts of roumaine since I had them lying around. YUMMY. It’s three days later and I’m down to the last of this bowl of collards and plan to make more soon!
I like eating most vegetables, but kale has been one of the few I’ve tried and not enjoyed. That is, until my wife came home with kale recently. I came across your recipe while searching for a different way to cook the kale, and my wife used it to prepare it. I wasn’t prepared for how good that first mouthful tasted. I have become a kale convert! Previous preparations left the kale tough and fibrous. Your recipe rendered it lusciously tender and the flavor was incredible. My wife will be planting kale this spring. Thank you for a recipe that will get regular use!
Collards are always sweeter after the first frost. If you want to make sure that your collards are less bitter, without adding sugar, put them in the freezer overnight. My Granny has done that for years! Also, I prefer corned meat in my collards, and if you’ve never tried a collard biscuit, it is time! Add a teensy bit of mayo, black pepper, and raw onion for an extra treat!
I enjoyed the collard greens but found them too sweet. Would reduce the sugar by at least 1/2.
I’m so glad I found this recipe. I bought collard greens this week and wasn’t sure how I was going to cook them. They’re simmering on the stove now and I have bbq chicken in the crockpot. Can’t wait for lunch tomorrow!! You’re the best! P.S. I never cook my turkey breast side up anymore!
This is a great recipe! I’ve made it two Thanksgivings in a row for a potluck. I also make a vegan version by browning mushrooms in olive oil instead of bacon and then adding a little Bragg’s or soy sauce to make it nice and savory. The vegan version is just as good! People love it.
Hi! I think all of y’all recipes are pretty cool. I love me some collards with lots of meat. First I begin with the bacon meaty less fatty bacon bout two packages and italian sausage fry til almost done then I add two diced vadalia onions to that same frying pan til they carmalize set to the side. In the meanwhile, the collards have been par boiling so I drain wash with cold water that take the color and bitterness away then add 1/2 cup fresh water 1/2 cup chicken broth bring to boiling then add bacon,sausage and onion mixture. Then I add smoked turkey wing leg and the ham hocks and I am telling you this is the most flavorful collards u would ever taste
