- Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook bacon until crisp; drain bacon on paper towels. Reserving drippings in skillet. Crumble bacon; set aside. Measure drippings. If necessary, add butter to drippings to make 3 tablespoons. Cook onion in reserved drippings over medium heat until just tender. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds. Add collard greens or chard and cook 5 minutes more or until tender.
