Collards ‘n’ Bacon…and Eggs

I was in the mood for greens yesterday morning.  Collard greens to be precise.

I love the giant, green leaves

Not to mention the benefits of eating green leafy veggies…

I was inspired by a client who made a delicious sounding dish with collard greens with bacon– what a phenominal idea. Bacon ‘n’ greens…what could be better?

I fried up some bacon,

Chopped my collards into strips, and put a little bacon greases into  a pan along with two tablespoons of water. I threw in the collards (stems and all), added some salt and pepper, and covered them to let them steam.

While my collards were steaming, I fried up some eggs.

After 10 minutes, the collards were bright green and tender. I topped them with eggs and bacon for a delicious, nutritous meal.


Chester was super jealous.
