Craving Collard Greens
These are the only photos I took. Once I tasted these collard greens, I had plate after plate. I forgot all about showing the greens nicely displayed on a pottery plate. I think homemade cornbread would be good with the collard greens too. The cornbread could soak up the juices in the bottom of the pan. I remember my grandmother used to bake her cornbread in a cast iron frying pan and she'd cut pie shaped pieces for us to eat. Now if I can remember how I made these collard greens to tell you.
Besides being a quick and easy one dish meal to make, collard greens are really good for you. They're full of vitamin A, C, K, and calcium and one quarter pound is 46 calories. Of course with the bacon added the calories would be more. Also researchers have found an ingredient in collard greens initiates antiviral, antibacterial, and anticancer responses. Stay healthy and eat your collard greens. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
