    • Large resealable plastic bag
    • Skillet
    • Stock pot

    Directions

    1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and render until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet. Add onions and celery. Cook about 4 to 5 minutes or until onions are translucent; remove from heat and set aside. 

    2. Add water and chicken broth to a large stockpot; add smoked turkey legs. Bring to a low boil and cook the turkey legs for 1 hour or until the meat is fork-tender. Remove turkey from stockpot. Shred meat; return to stockpot.

    3. Reduce heat to a simmer. Replace the meat in the stockpot; add undrained onion mixture to stockpot. Stir in Moe Cason pork seasoning and crushed red pepper flakes to taste. Add collard greens to the stockpot and cook until simmered and dark green, about 2 hours (do not overcook).
