Recipe by ColCadsMom
I created this dish for my "Mason-Dixon" New Years Day. My DH and sons do not care for collards or turnip greens cooked the traditional southern way. So I made them similar to the green been casserole that they do all like. This could also be made with turnip greens, spinach, kale or mustard greens. This goes perfectly with NurseDi's Skillet Hopping John and Barb Witherspoon's Crock Pot Pork Roast and Sauerkraut served with mashed potatoes. Add both southern style cornbread or biscuits and some northern buns (as my DH calls them) and you have the perfect meal combining both my Alabama and my husband's Pennsylvania traditions. Fresh cooked greens or frozen thawed greens work well also.
