Collard Green Dip with Bacon

collard green dip recipe with baconCOLLARD GREENS DIP WITH BACON 

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 bunches fresh collard greens, rinsed and chopped
  • 4 bacon slices, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 12 ounces cream cheese, cut into pieces
  • 1 (8-oz.) container plain yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan, divided

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in Dutch oven at medium heat. Add collard greens and cover, allowing to wilt for about 10 minutes, stirring as necessary. Remove to a separate bowl.

Cook bacon in microwave over paper towels. Drain.

Sauté onions in remaining olive oil until tender, about 4 – 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute for another 30 seconds. Pour in wine and cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring to loosen particles from bottom of Dutch oven. Stir in collard greens, cream cheese, plain yogurt, red pepper flakes, and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, 6 to 8 minutes or until cheese is melted and mixture is thoroughly heated. Transfer to a lightly greased 1 1/2-qt. baking dish (I used a sour dough bread bowl). Sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.

To serve:  Pour into cups while hot, or into a bread bowl, and broil 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned. Sprinkle evenly with bacon. Serve with pita bread or tortilla chips.
