By mary curtaindoll maryblea

My family loves greens,but these fried greens are the best.I just started messing with them to try something new, we have been eating them that way ever since I can remember. Now everyone who tries them are very impressed. They are always a hit wherever I cook them. (And all good greens must have cornbread)!
