Sides are my favorite especially flavorful vegetable ones. I had collards in my share the other week and this has by far my favorite way to prepare them.
Cook 3 slices of bacon in a pan then remove to a paper towel lined plate.
Sauté half of a diced onion in bacon grease for a few minutes then add one minced garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
Add 1lb. of chopped collards and sauté till they start to wilt. Add salt and pepper.
Add 3 cups of chicken stock and reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes.
