Turkey Sausage & Collards dinner

Turkey Sausage & Collards dinner

Introduction

There is nothing better than collard greens and ham hocks... this is a bit "thinner" version. It can also be put in the slow cooker and be done when you get home, or be done on the stove top in an hour.

Ingredients

    1.33 lbs of smoked turkey (cut into 1/2 inch slices)OR if you can find it, chicken sausage (we have a specialty store here that carries smoked chicken sausage)
    1 box of Swanson (or equivalant) vegetable broth (4 cups)
    2 bunches of collards washed and chopped.
    Approximately 5 cups of water if you are using a crock pot, 3 cups if using a dutch oven.
    Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

This can be made on the stove top in an hour, however, I like to prep it into the crock pot and return to find dinner done. A seving equals 1.5 cups of collards and sausage mixed. If you like, you may add the cooking broth too.

Crock Pot Directions: Chop sausage and collards into your pot. Add water and veggie broth. If your pot needs a lot of water to work, add the 5 cups of water. (some of the newer ones do not need to be full) Set your crock to high if you are fixing it in 3 or less hours, low for 8 hour time spans.

On the stove, bring collards to boil then reduce heat to a fast simmer for 45 minutes. Add the sausage for the last 15 minutes to "warm up" This will leave a bit of "tooth" or "crunch" to the collards. I don't like them as mush.

Feel free to e-mail me for particulars. Enjoy.

  • Hey, this was darn good! I was really skeptical, because it doesn't have any seasonings other than salt and pepper. I admit, I added an onion, sauted that and the sliced turkey sausage until the onions were soft, then added the rest and cooked it on the stove for a long while. I will make again! - 5/17/12
