collard greens - rinsed, trimmed and chopped
salt and ground black pepper to taste
greens seasoning, divided
Easy to make. My family liked it. Was not able to find the greens seasoning. Turn out just as well. Will make again.
This is an easy recipe to try. I found it to be ok. I pretty much followed the recipe except for the amounts of greens and cabbage I just used what I had of each. I think next time I will leave out the cabbbage I like both fried cabbage and fried collards just not together.
I've been smothering cabbage and kale with bacon and onion for years so was so glad to see that it's a favorite with others. It's great to keep in the fridge so whenever I want a "snack" to tide me over, I warm up a bowl of this in the micro. More recipies like this please!
OK, so I had never made collard greens or even ate them much...I always heard they were hard to get right. Well, this recipe with the cabbage and the bacon is so easy and simply and oh sooooo sinful!!!! I added red pepper flake to mine as it was frying but that's all I changed since I like things a little spicy. I will be making this recipe again and again and again....thanks so much for the awesome recipe. LOOOOVE IT!!!!
Took a bit longer for my greens to tenderize, but it didn't matter..the end result was absolutely awesome. I've been looking for this recipe for a while; my grandmother made greens just like this!!!!
It was a very good. I made it for christmas and it was a hit with the family.
A-MA-ZING! Sooo easy and nutritious = high in Vit C and A. My neighbor is an ole' southern boy and he raves about smothered cabbage. It's the only thing he can make. He's in the produce industry and gives all us transplant northerners seriously fresh cabbage. Now I know what to do with it. Thank You!
I made this dish with my Easter dinner, without the greens(didn't have any) but it still was very good.I did add extra greens seasoning. My daughter who doesn't like cabbage went back for seconds!! Thanks for posting!
