How to Make It

Step 1

Cook bacon in a large Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; crumble. Add onion to drippings in pan; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add collard greens, and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until greens begin to wilt, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Place collard green mixture, salt, and next 3 ingredients (through broth) in a 3-quart electric slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.

Step 3

Combine balsamic vinegar and honey in a small bowl. Stir vinegar mixture into collard greens just before serving. Sprinkle with bacon.

I made these with frozen collard greens and it was delicious. Definitely putting this easy side dish into heavy meal rotation!

Very good. I read it wrong and added it all together and it was still good. Cooked mine about 5 hours though, I wanted it more tender.
