Directions

  1. Fry the bacon with the onion in a large skillet over medium heat until the bacon is crisp, about 10 minutes. Stir in the chopped collard greens, sprinkle with salt, black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of the greens seasoning; cook and stir for 5 minutes.
  2. Add in the darker chopped cabbage leaves, and cook and stir until almost tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining cabbage; season with salt, black pepper, sugar, and the remaining greens seasoning. Stir well; cover and cook until tender, stirring occasionally so that the greens do not scorch, about 10 minutes.

Easy to make. My family liked it. Was not able to find the greens seasoning. Turn out just as well. Will make again.

I've been smothering cabbage and kale with bacon and onion for years so was so glad to see that it's a favorite with others. It's great to keep in the fridge so whenever I want a "snack" to tide me over, I warm up a bowl of this in the micro. More recipies like this please!

OK, so I had never made collard greens or even ate them much...I always heard they were hard to get right. Well, this recipe with the cabbage and the bacon is so easy and simply and oh sooooo sinful!!!! I added red pepper flake to mine as it was frying but that's all I changed since I like things a little spicy. I will be making this recipe again and again and again....thanks so much for the awesome recipe. LOOOOVE IT!!!!
