Shamefully, I have to admit that this was my first attempt ever at cooking collard greens. I was always curious, but just didn’t think that cooked greens could actually taste good. I don’t think I could have been more wrong. Not only was this Bacon Collard Greens Recipe to die for delicious, it has become one of my absolute most favorite Weight Watchers Recipes. My husband and I gobbled this dish down like it was a hot fudge brownie sundae. Yes, it was that good. We completely forgot about the main dish recipe that night and just tore up these Bacon Collard Greens like there was no tomorrow. If you are looking for a fantastic vegetable recipe that will help you get your greens in, what better way is there to eat them than cooking them with bacon!?? Seriously…go get the ingredients, and make this ASAP. And at just 2 Points + per serving, it’s the perfect low calorie side dish recipe to compliment your favorite Southern meal!
