For Cream Collards, I used Kathy’s technique for Cream Brussels Sprouts. Right now I have a lot of collards, and I’m tired of doing the same couple recipes I usually do, so this is a delicious change.
In this recipe, I used Frankly Delicious (14 oz), one of my favorite “go to” all purpose seasonings (my good friend Sally introduced me to). It’s great especially when I’m in a hurry and I want lots of flavor fast. Here’s the info again – if you shop in Gatesville, it’s available at Ranchers (254-865-5863) most of the time.
Otherwise, information about Frankly Delicious is:
