Pass me the collards….

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.

I served with bbq chicken, minute Spanish rice and grilled garlic shoots.
