1 (2-pound) bag prepackaged turnip greens, coarsely chopped
Hot pepper sauce (optional)
How to Make It
Melt margarine in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 7 minutes. Stir in sugar and pepper. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 20 minutes or until golden, stirring frequently. Remove onion mixture from pan; set aside.
Place pan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Gradually add turnip greens, and cook 10 minutes or until wilted, stirring frequently. Add onion mixture to turnip greens; stir gently. Sprinkle with hot pepper sauce, if desired. Serve immediately.
The sweetness of the onion offsets the somewhat bitterness of the greens in this dish. I used butter instead of margarine (haven't used margarine in 30 years). I had garden-fresh turnip greens. We didn't use the hot sauce. It is a recipe I'd make about once a year.
I actually liked this. My family didn't like it at all, but I thought it was pretty good. I added salt too. I have made turnip greens the old fashioned southern way and the family likes that. I will make this again, but only when the kids aren't home to eat. :)
