I halved this recipe, but still used 5 cloves of garlic and 1 tsp of salt. Also, I used pork neck instead of ham hocks. But talk about easy! This recipe was delicious! I served it with kielbasa sausage over mashed potatoes to sop up the broth. Can't wait to make it again!

So it was my 1st time ever making greens like this, I usually just saute some kale when I cook greens. However, I just made 4 batches(2 with Ham Hocks & 2 with Turkey necks) of these greens for my church's 16th Anniversary celebration today and they were absolutely delicious!! Glory to God! Everyone loved them. Thank you soo much for the recipe tybright31!
