Collard Greens

Need a simple side dish to go with that dinner you have planned? How about these simple Collard Greens?

Collard Greens | thebittersideofsweet.comI can not even believe I am writing a post about collard greens! A few years ago I never would of imagined that I would have ever eaten them. I was not a fan as a kid or young adult. I have also found as I grow older I am more likely to try something that I don’t remember trying or have always said I didn’t like. That is what happened with these. I was in Aldi a while back and they had this bag on sale for .99. Now when you have family of 6 you are always looking for a bargain. So I jumped on them and brought them home. Then I thought, now what?InstagramSo I posted on Instagram a pic and asked around. I got a response from Amy at So There By Amy. She gave me a quick way to cook them up and now I. CAN. NOT. GET. ENOUGH.Collard Greens | thebittersideofsweet.comThey cook up really easy and quick. I actually made these while I had some cookies in the oven! More about those on Friday. So if you are looking for something quick and easy and taste out of this world you should definitely give these a shot! ENJOY!
