This is an excellent, simple recipe for Southern style collard greens. I doubled this recipe and brought it to a potluck and it was very well received.

Collard Greens
Serves 6

1 tablespoon olive oil
3 slices bacon
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 pinch red pepper flakes
1 lb fresh collard greens, cut into 2-inch pieces

Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Chop bacon into small chunks or small strips and cook until crisp. Add onion, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, and cook until just fragrant about 2 minutes. Add collard greens, and cook until they start to wilt.

Pour in chicken broth, and season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes, or until greens are tender.
