Are you a fan of collard greens?

If so, what is your preferred method of preparation? Please let us know in the comments and give our collard greens with bacon a try.

The bacon, onions, sweet apple cider vinegar, and chili sauce seem to balance  the natural bitterness of the vegetables.


  • 2 tablespoons sugar.
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt.
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper with fresh ground.
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar.
  • 2 pounds of collard greens, trimmed and sliced into 3-inch-wide strips (kale or chard can be substituted).
  • 1 cup chicken broth (or water).


  1. In a saucepan on medium heat, dissolving butter.
  2. Cook the bacon in the pan, stirring occasionally, until it begins to brown around the edges.
  3. Cook until the onions have softened and are just beginning to brown.
  4. Cook until the garlic becomes fragrant, about a minute, and then add the salt, pepper, sugar, and hot sauce.
  5. Cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot, until the liquid has been reduced by half. 
  6. Bring the collard greens and chicken broth (or water) to a simmer. 
  7. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the collard greens have wilted and lost their bright color.

Season with more vinegar and hot sauce to taste.

Serve with a spoonful of sauce from the pan.
