Bacony Collard or Mustard Greens

This recipe is another part of our New Year's Day dinner tradition.  

If you aren't a fan of collard or mustard greens, this does work nicely with spinach, too, although saute time would be reduced until the spinach is just wilted.

Bacony Collard or Mustard Greens
Serves 4-6
  • 6-8 slices of bacon, diced
  • 1 C chopped onion
  • 1 pound greens, fresh or frozen, chopped
  • 1 t Cajun seasoning
  • OPTIONAL: Dash Tabasco
  •  Black pepper to taste
  • 1 T butter
  1. Cook bacon until almost crisp.  Add onion and saute until onion is tender and bacon is crisp.  Remove from pan and drain off excess fat.
  2. Add greens and saute 10-15 minutes, adding back bacon grease if needed.
  3. Add bacon mixture, seasonings, and butter.  Toss to melt butter and combine greens evenly with seasonings.

  1. My husband LOVES greens and they're one of the few things that I haven't ventured a try at yet. I'm going to try these out soon...he'll thank you, I'm sure!

    Love you're blog! Miss R turned me on to it...looking forward to browsing around when it's a decent hour. :)
