Oh my! I joined in today for Foodie Friday and didn't realize it was for train wrecks.But most of my cooking is train wrecks LOL .

Well actually this is what we had for supper last night . I am going to show you how to cook collard greens.This is my favorite greens.I used to never cook them because I didn't know how to season them good.I met a fella at a local restaurant close by and he told me how he cooked his and I have been hooked ever since . Just roll them up to the end of the big stem . As you are rolling them most of the stem will pop away from the leaf. What doesn't pop away just cut it off with the knife.
Now while you have them rolled up just go ahead and cut them up.I cut across them length wise one time and then go back and chop them up smaller .I hope you understood that, I am not real good about splaining ! LOL .
Now cover with water.
For this pan full I used half of a 12 oz. package of bacon ; slice across it kind of in small sections like this .
Now add it to the greens.
Now all you do is cook, cook , cook them till they look like this.I let mine boil almost dry.About half way through cooking them I add the salt.I have no measurement for the salt I just do to my taste. These are drop dead good I'm tellin ya !
So we had collard greens, white beans with ham cooked in them,pickled beets and corn bread and iced tea ! One of my favorite meals. It's funny how your taste can change over the years. When I was young I wouldn't have touched it. I guess I still shouldn't touch it, cholesterol city ya know ! LOL .
