Southern Eggs Collards & Thick Smoked Bacon
What you do:
In a large heavy skillet on medium heat, put olive oil and garlic. Saute about 3 minutes.  Add collards and toss with tongs.  Turn up heat to medium high.  Add chicken broth, red chili flakes, lemon pepper, salt and pepper and toss well with tongs.  Cover with a lid and let cook about 20 minutes tossing occasionally.  Reduce heat to medium low, drizzle on bacon drippings from the fried bacon, toss together.  Cover and fry your eggs.

Using the same skillet in which you fried your bacon, fry eggs to desired finish~~I like mine sunnyside up!

Serve in small shallow bowls~~add some collard greens, bacon pieces, and the egg!  It’s a hug in your tummy!
