Smothered Collard Greens and Cabbage


  • 1/2 lb bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 5 leaves collard greens, trimmed and chopped
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp greens seasoning (or any spice combination you like!)
  • 1 head cabbage, chopped
  • 1 pinch white sugar


1. Fry the bacon with the onion in a large skillet over medium heat until the bacon is crisp, about 10 minutes.

2. Stir in the chopped collard greens, sprinkle with salt, black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of the greens seasoning; cook and stir for 5 minutes.

3. Add in the darker chopped cabbage leaves, and cook and stir until almost tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining cabbage; season with salt, black pepper, sugar, and the remaining greens seasoning. Stir well; cover and cook until tender, stirring occasionally so that the greens do not scorch about 10 minutes. Serve warm!
