  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • ¼ pound turkey bacon, chopped

  • ¼ pound bulk turkey sausage

  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced

  • 5 tablespoons chopped garlic

  • 2 pounds collard greens, rinsed and trimmed

  • 2 cups chicken stock

  • ½ cup white wine

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon molasses, or more to taste

  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, or to taste

  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke, or to taste

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon, sausage, onion, and garlic; saute until sausage is browned and crumbly, 7 to 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile cut collards into thin strips; add to sausage mixture. Pour in chicken stock and wine. Add molasses, vinegar, liquid smoke, salt, and pepper. Cover and cook, stirring every few minutes, until most liquid is evaporated and collards are tender, about 45 minutes.
