Grandma G's Collard Greens

Recipe by Elizabeth
READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
YIELD: 1 cup




  • Rinse your collard greens with water in a collander.
  • Make sure you let the water drain out of you collard greens as much as possible. Too much water in your pot will ruin your greens.
  • In a stock pot add Oive Oil, Onion, Green pepper, and Turkey bacon (or your choice of turkey or pork).
  • Set your heat to low medium and put the lid on for 2 two minutes at this temperature and then drop your heat to low. Add in yor garlic very quickly and put the lid on immediately.
  • After three to five minutes open the lid and stir aroud everything.
  • Grab your collander of collard greens (that by now should be fairly dry but give them a shake to make sure). Add about half of your collard greens and stir everything together. This is so your olive oil will circulate itself within the greens.
  • Add Salt, Pepper and Lawry's Seasoned Salt.
  • Stir everything a little bit more and finish adding in the greens just stirring for a minute to incorporate everything.
  • Put the lid back on and you're going to let this cook. Occasionally stirring maybe everything 20-30 minutes. Just keep an eye on it.
  • Your greens are finished cooking when they have wilted down completely. Your onions will be translucent. You will not see any or many pieces of garlic. There will be some liquid in your stock pot from the greens. DO NOT ADD ANY WATER TO THEM. It should take about an hour and thirty minutes to two hours. to cook.
