Yield Makes 6 to 8 servings


  • 1 cup chopped baked ham
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 (16-oz.) package frozen chopped collard greens, thawed and drained
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose baking mix

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Sauté ham in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until browned. Stir in collards and onion, and sauté 5 minutes or until onion is tender and liquid evaporates. Layer half of collard mixture in a lightly greased 9-inch pie plate; top with 3/4 cup cheese. Repeat layers once.

  2. Whisk together milk and remaining ingredients until smooth; pour over collard-and-cheese mixture in pie plate.

  3. Bake at 400° for 25 to 35 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
