As some of you may know, we accidentally bought collard greens instead of broccoli when we bought our plants for the garden. Since then, I have been racking my brains to come up with a recipie for green besides your standard Southern Greens. Tyler was, too, apparently, because one night when I got home, he had written down a recipie he saw on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives called Bubble and Squeak. This week the collards are done, so I decided to try it.
I made the greens one night, and then the Bubble and Squeak the next. First, I plucked the collards from the garden.
Then I started the reciepie. I started with onions, butter, garlic and some apple cider vinegar.
Then I added some water, Tobasco, Worchestershire sauce, and molasses. AND THE GREENS!
Let that simmer together for about 45 – 60 minutes. They are done! You can either eat this as a side, or add them to the Bubble and Squeak like I did.
The next day I opened a bottle of wine to let it breathe:
OK, now I am ready to actually cook. Mashed potatoes, then gravy from the green’s juice, eggs, and a side biscuit.
For not having the exact measurements of ingredients, I think I did pretty well! For those of you wondering about the actual recipie, here’s a link: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/southern-greens-recipe2/index.html
