Southern Poke Sallet

We have a large abundance of this down here in the South during the spring time. It grows like weeds and it is a very tasty green if cooked right.

Ingredients

1 bunch
poke sallet
3 to 4 large
eggs
1/2 lb
thick smoked bacon
1 medium
red onion -- diced

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pick poke when it is small enough to be tender. Parboil in enough water to cover greens. This takes about 15 minutes. Drain and rinse thoroughly.
2
Cook a second time, until leaves are very tender, drain water off. This 2 step cooking process removes excessive Vitamin A in the leaves which may be toxic.
3
In a skillet cook your bacon to obtain bacon drippings.
4
Remove bacon, sauté onions. Add drained greens, stirring well. Break eggs into greens and scramble all together. Then crumble your bacon and mix it all together.
