Louisiana Collard Greens

This recipe is a favorite of our family and friends, and even folks who were hesitant to try greens have said they really liked these. I often make them around New Years too, along with Hoppin' John. When I'm in a hurry, I save prep time by buying pre-washed, trimmed and bagged collard greens in the produce department. Sometimes I add a little leftover ham as well, cubed -- and I still use the ham hocks and bacon too -- I guess we love pork. :)
