    Really Easy. Made mine with turkey sausage instead. Brown rice took a little longer to cook, suggest making that in advance a little. - 6/21/09

    I used vegetable broth, 4 breakfast sausage links, and 1/4 the pepper - the full measure would've been too much. Let it sit on the turned off stove 15 minutes over the 30 minute cook time. Fantastic! Great comfort food. Tried again with 1/2 a kielbasa instead of ham. Yum. - 7/11/08

    This was ok. Way too much pepper though. I'll try this again with 1/3rd or 1/4th the pepper and it will probably be great. - 10/24/12

    Very Good
    I enjoyed making this dinner. I didn't know it was so high in sodium until I put it in my nutrition tracker and saw how much high it was. My fault, I didn't check the nutrition info. Other than that it is a very good, quick meal to prepare. - 4/26/11

    This recipe served as my introduction to collard greens. I used the "sweet" Italian-style turkey sausage instead of ham. Next time, I'll try the hot-sausage but less pepper to give the recipe a bit more kick. I'll also substitute boxed vegetable or chicken broth for the canned -- less sodium. - 9/15/10
