Crock Pot Collards

Greens are easy. But the time component makes them kinda tough – we last night I cooked them in my crock pot. Holy revelation! I’ll never stir them for hours again (unless I cook them with my Mama and have to use the stirring oar).

crock pot collards


  • 2 bunches of collards, removed from stems and washed
  • 1 chicken bullion cube
  • 2 slices of bacon
  • 2 T EVOO
  • 3 T vinegar
  • Salt & Pep
  • High quality H2O
  • Crock pot

Load all your ingredients into your crock pot and cover with water – I filled mine to about 1 inch from the top so I’d have plenty of pot likkor (see my post on pot likkor risotto!)

Cook on high overnight (at least 8 hours) then in the AM lower the heat to low and cook for your work day (another 6-8 hours). You can’t really cook collards too long – but cook them less if you’d like more texture in your greens.

You’ll have all the flavor without any of the work.  WIN.
