Kale, collard, and mustard greens cooked southern style with bacon. Simmered in chicken broth, with onions, garlic, and peppers!
A few years ago I uploaded my recipe for Southern Collard Greens. Since then the recipe has been tried, and loved by so many of my viewers. Since you all loved the recipe so much I decided to come back with another southern greens recipe, but this time the greens are mixed.

I honestly love all greens, but the greens used for this recipe was kale, collards, and mustard greens. I seasoned the greens with European Style Bacon, and I must say that I absolutely loved it. I usually use bacon ends, ham hocks, or smoked pork neck bones. However, my local butcher talked me into trying the European style bacon, and I’m glad that he did. The bacon is a lot smokier than regular bacon, and it had a lot less fat. The outcome was amazing…. I think I am now in love with European style bacon y’all!
Other than using bacon to flavor my southern mixed greens I also use my usual ingredients such as chicken broth, garlic, onions, bell peppers, and red pepper flakes.
So we talked about the greens, the bacon, and even what I use to season the greens. Now let’s talk about the turnips. I used about 3-4 turnips for this huge pot of greens. Before throwing them into the pot I made sure to wash them thoroughly. After washing the turnips, I peeled them, then I cut them into small squares.
