We have been making spinach and artichoke dip for years and thought it was time for a little change.  Collards are one of our family favorites. Spinach and artichoke is a little over done and thought some collards would be good in it.   Well the sisters were right, it is fabulous.  This little change gave an ordinary dip a new southern twist.   


4 tablespoons butter

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 shallot, chopped

2 (10-ounce) boxes collard greens, thawed and drained

2 cans artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

½ cup mayonnaise

½ cup sour cream

4 ounces cream cheese

1/2 cup shredded Pecorino Romano

 2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon white pepper

1/2 lemon, juiced

Dash hot sauce

Dash Worcestershire sauce



Preheat oven to 375. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and shallots and sauté until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in cheese until the cheese has melted. Add salt, pepper, lemon juice, hot sauce and Worcestershire. Fold in the collard greens and artichoke hearts.Add mixture to a casserole dish. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown
