A delicious, comforting, and easy side dish of cheesy creamed collard greens that’s perfect for your next holiday dinner or weeknight feast.
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 2-3 quarts
Serves: 8 – 12
Add chopped collard greens, salt, and black pepper to a large pot over medium-high heat. Stirring continually, cook until the collard greens are wilted and most of the liquid released by the greens has simmered off, about 5 minutes.
Reduce to medium heat. Add butter and sliced shallots. Cook until the butter has melted and the shallots are tender, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Sprinkle all-purpose flour over greens to evenly coat. When flour is completely moist, stir in whole milk, shredded Frigo® Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, and 1 (5-ounce) container Frigo® Shaved Parmesan Cheese allowing mixture to rise in temperature to a simmer over medium-high heat. Simmer for a few minutes until cheese is melted and desired consistency is reached, stirring frequently.
Reduce heat to low. Add vinegar, paprika, and nutmeg, stirring for an additional 5 minutes until flavors have melded.
Taste and adjust salt and pepper as needed. Top with Frigo® Shaved Parmesan Cheese, crumbled bacon or chopped almonds, and serve hot.
Enjoy as a delicious vegetable side dish at your next holiday dinner or weeknight feast!
Transfer into a casserole by adding the creamed collard green mixture to a 2-quart baking dish and sprinkling with the Frigo® Shaved Parmesan Cheese, crumbled bacon, or chopped almonds, and a ¼ cup seasoned panko. Bake until bubbling and lightly golden brown on top, about 15 minutes.
