Stewed Collard Greens

Collard Greens
8 strips bacon (about 8 ounces), cut into 1/2-inch pieces ( you can subsitute a smoked turkey leg chopped up and it is less fat)
1 medium Vidalia onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 stick butter ( 1/4 cup of olive oil less fat)
 2 cups water
2 pounds collards, rinsed and drained, stems removed, leaves cut into 1/2-inch strips 

Hot sauce
I add a litte vinegar and sugar to taste
DirectionsCook the bacon in a large saucepan over medium-high heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the onion and butter and cook until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes more. Add the water and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the collards and cook until very soft, about 20 minutes. Season with salt and hot sauce, to taste. Transfer the greens to a serving bowl and serve.
