In looking through various keto recipe sites I found a creamed collards recipe that sounded intriguing__ kind of. I used a little of the original but altered it to fit my southern tastes. This is the version I made because honestly what is better than smoked sausage? (Specifically Conecuh sausage)* Before I go on, let me say this is not a pretty dish, but the flavor is outstanding!
The weather has not been cold enough here for the collards to lose their bitter taste so I used 2 bags of frozen cut collards. Call me a cheater if you have to, but it surely made this an easier prep than washing, cutting, and washing again before cooking them.
