I did make a few changes but it would be hard to believe they made that much difference. I used left over turkey and doubled it. I used kale instead of collards because I had it in my garden. Overall it was dry and we didn't enjoy it at all. My husband didn't even eat his. I ate my greens but not many beans. Maybe we are just not fans of lima beans? It was a waste of some great turkey.
I have made this several times and every time it comes out excellent. Instead of smoked turkey breast I have used smoked turkey thighs or wings, both with great results. A big hit with even my picky eaters.
WOW! This was great! I got a bunch of collard greens in my CSA box and went looking for a recipe to use them up. I lucked out in finding this one because the result was fantastic! It took a long time - about 3 hours - so I can only use it on a weekend. I left out the garlic - my husband is allergic - and didn't miss it at all.
If you're a fan of collard greens, you'll love this easy recipe. And it's easily adaptable to the crockpot.
