Collard Greens with Crunchy Bacon Bits
Passing by a farmers market, I could not resist these collard greens. So fresh and tasty.
I knew we were having pork chops for dinner so this was a nice modern twist on a Southern dinner.

1 bunch of collard greens washed, spun dried, thick stems removed
3-4 pieces of bacon ( I used Oscar Meyer Thick Bacon)
1/3 cup of broth
1 tablespoon of oil (I used grape)

Cook bacon to package directions. Set  on paper towel to absorb oil. Cut up bacon into small bits. I use kitchen shears to do tihis.

Heat a large skillet with oil. Add collard greens. Cook down about a minute, flip over. Add stock and cover. Cook for 3-5 minutes on medium flame mixing about ½ way through.
Add salt to taste and bacon bits. I served this with Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Chops. Recipe here: Brown Sugar and Garlic Glazed Pork Chops
