    Amazing! My husband had never eaten collard greens before and now he is hooked and he is not a big veggie eater. My 6 yr old, 8yr old, and 10 yr old boys loved them too! High five on this recipe!

    This was a little time consuming but the results were well worth the wait. Delicious and loved by everyone in my family including my 6 year old grandson. It is now one of my favorite sides for all occasions.

    Good flavor but not overpowering. We skipped the vinegar and it still tastes great

    This was so easy and delicious. Made it to go with honey mustard chicken. This was also my first time making collard greens, but it won’t be my last!

    It was really good added fried bacon, some fried ham, sea salt and pepper, used one less bouillon cube, and Texas Pete's hot vinegar sauce. The best greens I've ever had.

    I made these to go with a Sunday dinner, and the family loved them. I added additional seasoning, but these were great!

    First time making collard greens and my family said the best they ever ate! They asked me to repeat for Christmas dinner. I used smoked turkey wings instead of pork.
