Number of Servings: 10


    1 large bag of frozen turnip greens, (about 3 pounds)
    4-6 slices bacon
    .5 tbsp salt (or as desired)

    *Optional, black pepper, red pepper flakes, tabasco, are things some people like to add to spice this dish up.


Boil turnip greens in large pot (I use 8qt.) with desired amount of water, on medium heat.

Fry bacon and add it along with the grease to the turnip greens that are just starting to boil. Cover, stir occasionally, cook for about 30 min, then add salt and any other desired spices, simmer for about 15 more minutes, discard bacon, drain some of the liquid and serve.

I've never measured this, but it should make around 10-1 cup servings.

Number of Servings: 10
