Smothered Collard Greens and Cabbage

This is a wonderful variation of fried (smothered) cabbage.


6 cups (8 servings)


1/2 pound bacon, chopped
1/2 large onion, chopped
5 leaves collard greens, rinsed, trimmed and chopped
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon greens seasoning, divided
1 head cabbage, chopped
1 pinch granulated (white) sugar


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

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.
