Collard greens are a New Years Day must! Theyre good luck and this is my version.


Bacon slices/Ham hock 5 , diced
Onion 1 Large , diced
Garlic cloves 7 , minced
Butter 1/8 Cup (2 tbs)
Collard greens 48 Ounce (collard greens 3 heads, chopped)

White vinegar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Seasoned salt To Taste
Salt To Taste
Pepper To Taste
Red pepper flakes 1/4 Teaspoon



1. In a large pot, over medium high add the chopped bacon, stir and allow to cook until bacon starts to render, about 5 minutes.

2. Add in the onion, butter and garlic, and allow to cook, stirring for 5 minutes.

3. After 5 minutes put in collard greens, about 1/3 at a time, alternating with little chicken stock at a time, allow to wilt then add next batch.

4. After adding the last bag of the collard greens and stock, add in vinegar, salt, pepper, season salt, and red pepper flakes, cover and allow to simmer on low for about 25 minutes.


5. Serve hot.


You can add a little more vinegar and some hot sauce if you like
