Ingredients

  • 8 ounces sliced bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 10 ounces collard greens, woody stems removed, leaves thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until brown and crispy, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove about half the bacon to a plate. Add the collard greens to the skillet and cook, tossing occasionally, until they start to get tender, about 5 minutes.

Mix together the apple cider vinegar, sugar and hot sauce. Pour over the collard greens and cook, stirring, until the greens absorb some of the moisture, about 8 minutes. Crumble the reserved bacon over the top and serve hot.
