    My husband & I loved this recipe.. So easy to make.. and will make again.. I used frozen collards ,Tasted great...also didn't take as long to make...

    This recipe was really tasty once I tweaked it a little. I had to cook it considerably longer than the recommended time for the greens to soften. I also added some cider vinegar. I also added the bacon in towards the end of cooking to add some of the flavor and soften the bacon some.

    This is almost the same as the way I make them except I use a splash of cider vinegar. Equally as good using kale!
