Collard greens and ham hocks just go together like peas and carrots. These two best friends of the food world go together so well, that sometimes we get stuck in a bit of a rut when it comes to cooking them. The long, slow stewing of greens and hocks together is one of our favorite Sunday rituals, but we promise to mix up our collard greens recipes if you do. So we found a bunch of great ones.
Collards have a reputation for needing to be cooked to death. We've discovered that's just not true, even though they are delicious that way. The truth is that quick-sautéed collard greens are deliciously toothsome, but not impossible to chew through. We also can't believe we never thought of stuffing collard greens like cabbage leaves until today. What's your favorite way with collard greens?
