2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, quartered and thinly sliced
1 large bunch collards, washed, ribs removed, and chopped
1 cup half and half
salt and pepper, to taste
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced onions and cook until they start to brown, about 8 minutes. Add the chopped collards and cook, stirring, until wilted, about 5 minutes. Stir in the half and half and reduce the heat to medium-low. Season with salt and pepper and then simmer, stirring often, until the collards are tender and the liquid is reduced, about 10 minutes.
