Heat a large pot over medium heat, then add olive oil 🥘

Once hot, add bacon & cook it until it is mostly cooked 🥓

Add onions & cook until they are translucent 🧅

Then add garlic and cook for 1 - 2 minutes 🧄

Add fresh or frozen greens & cook just enough to wilt them 🥬

Next, add chicken stock to cover the greens and deglaze the pot 🐓

Add salt, pepper, Tony’s, red pepper flakes, brown sugar, and apple cider vinegar 🧂

Stir the greens well, make sure the seasoning is evenly mixed in 👩‍🍳

Now, cover & let the greens cook down, stirring occasionally ⏲

Remove lid & let them cool - these are seriously the BEST collard greens EVER! 🥬
