Cooktop Cove: How to make ham and greens casserole with cornbread crust
Ham and collard greens is a Southern classic, and one that often takes a long time to stew so those greens are given enough time to break down. The recipe below uses frozen collard greens however, so they're ready to use without a long cook time. And while you could also go to the trouble of braising a ham hock, simply using ham that's already cooked is certainly a time-saver.
The cornbread crust couldn't be easier to make. Any cornbread recipe will work here so if you already have a favorite make it up to the point where you actually pour it into a dish and bake it. But if you're short on time, the pre-mix can bring all the comfort of cornbread in just a few minutes. Any way you cook it, this dish brings an entire Southern meal and puts it all into one dish!
