Vegetable side dish. I love slow-cooked collards as much as the next person, but I was raised on these. My mom worked, so this was the easiest way for her to cook them during the week.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook bacon in heavy skillet until crisp (use medium heat). (Sometimes the bacon will stick together; you must break it up).
  2. Add butter, cook until melted.
  3. Add veggies, stir.
  4. Add your seasonings.
  5. Add frozen greens - no water is necessary; the ice on the greens will melt into water. Cover pot with lid. In about ten minutes, the greens should be soft.
  6. Then stir them, mixing them up with the onions, peppers and bacon. Cover again, stirring periodically for approximately 20 minutes, or until greens are dark and soft.
  7. Serve hot.
  8. If you like fresh greens, that's fine. Just make sure to add a 1/4 cup of water right after you add the peppers and onions.
