Summary

Yep. That’s right collard green egg roll. Why? Because we love collard greens and Chinese food in the south and that’s how we roll. Get it roll!!! I remember my wonderful grandmother making collard greens early Sunday morning always adding a little sugar. My father on the other hand made them hot and spicy served with raw onion. Both dishes were great.

Instructions

  1. 1In a cast iron pot fry bacon until crispy remove from pan add onion cook until translucent, add greens seasonings and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for about an hour until tender. Let cool drain and add salt and bacon. Taste greens for seasoning and salt adjustments.
  2. 2In a 12 inch frying pan add enough oil to fill pan half way. I use safflower oil do not use olive oil. Heat oil to about 315-325 degrees. Roll your egg rolls. Fry turning constantly until golden brown about 12 min. Makes 10 egg rolls.
