Creamed Collard Greens

Creamed Collard Greens

WebMD Recipe from

Creamed collard greens, in all their old-fashioned charm, soothe a worn soul. The collard greens’ briny undertones pair very nicely with the rich sweetness of cream and caramelized onions. Bring a bottle of hot sauce to the table, which adds a punch of heat to an otherwise calm and mild dish.

Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 10 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes
  • 2 tablespoons
  • 1 large
    yellow onion, peeled and sliced thin
  • 2 bunches
    collard greens, stems removed, trimmed and chopped
  • 1 cup
    heavy cream
    freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
    sea salt, to taste
  1. Melt butter in a skillet over a moderately high flame until it froths, then toss in sliced yellow onion, frying in melted butter until fragrant and a bit caramelized around the edges.
  2. Add chopped collard greens to the skillet, stirring until slightly wilted, about two minutes.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low, stir in one cup heavy cream and simmer for about five to six minutes, until the cream is largely reduced.
  4. Season with freshly grated nutmeg and sea salt to taste and serve hot.
