Collard Greens with Smoked Turkey Bacon
1/4 cup Olive Oil
8 oz Smoked Turkey Bacon chopped
1 large Onion sliced
4 Cloves chopped Garlic
2 pounds Collards
2 cups Chicken Stock
1 cup Water
1/2 cup White Wine
In a large saute`pan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add bacon. Then add onion, and garlic. Reduce heat to low and cook until bacon is crispy, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, separate and thoroughly rinse collards under water. Roll 2 to 3 leaves together; slice roll crosswise into thin strips. Add collards to pan; stir to combine.
Pour in chicken stock, water, and wine.(add more water if needed to cover greens) Cover pan, increase heat to medium, and simmer for 30 minutes or until desired tenderness, stirring occasionally. Season to taste with salt and pepper. This is my favorite recipe for collard greens. Thanks, G. Garvin
