Sautéed Collard Greens & Red Swiss Chard with Bacon recipe

Over the weekend we had a ton of fun creating this recipe in partnership with Brummel & Brown with their fantastic Organic Buttery Spread made with yogurt. We looove greens of all kinds, so we decided to show you how to make one of our favorite side dishes, sautéed collard greens & red swiss chard with bacon.

As some of you know, I’ve recently been trying to get back in shape, and eat better. I’ve had a bit too much fun with all of the exciting foodie events going on. (I guess it goes with the territory, being a food blogger and all.)

Before I started getting back to my old good habits, I was worried. I kept asking myself things like: “Am I going to be eating super boring food like chicken and rice?” “ How long is it going to take to cook all of this stuff?” “Am I going to be able to keep up with my healthier, and balanced lifestyle when I’m pressed for time?” “Am I going to feel tired from ‘dieting?’”

To my surprise (and my delight), I’ve been feeling awesome. I’ve had a ton of more energy. Secondly, I’ve found that eating a boring diet is not a requirement of eating better. I’ve been making super delicious and nutritious meals for the past couple of weeks. Third, it doesn’t take that long to cook nutritious and delicious meals.

With the help of Brummel & Brown’s Organic Buttery Spread made with real yogurt, I can feel better when I am cooking my daily meals. It spreads easily (even right out of the fridge), tastes great and has a very creamy texture. I’ve been using it while cooking and to top my toast and sweet potatoes and it has a great buttery taste! Plus, it has less than half the saturated fat of butter (check out full product nutritionals here). We wanted to show you how we have been using our Brummel & Brown Organic Buttery Spread in our daily life. Here’s what you might find for breakfast in our house!

Sautéed Collard Greens & Red Swiss Chard with Bacon recipe


2 tbsp. Brummel and Brown Organic Buttery Yogurt Spread
1 small or ½ of a medium sweet onion
⅓ cup bacon bits
4 cloves of garlic
½ bunch of red swiss chard
½ bunch of collard greens


  1. Prep all of your ingredients. Mince the garlic. Thinly slice the onion. Separate the red swiss chard leaves from the stems, and dice the stems. Separate the collard greens from the stems, discard the stems.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of Brummel & Brown Organic Buttery Yogurt Spread to the pan and melt over medium heat. Add in the red swiss chard stems, onions and bacon bits. Cook down until onions are soft and translucent, about 5 – 7 minutes.
  3. After you’ve sweated the onions, add in the garlic and stir for about 30 seconds until fragrant.
  4. Add in the greens to the pan with the 2nd tablespoon of Brummel & Brown Organic Buttery Yogurt Spread. Season with salt and pepper. Cook down until leaves are soft, about 3 minutes.
  5. The greens are ready! Serve as a side to many dishes. We love them for breakfast with sweet potatoes and eggs for example. We hope you enjoy Brummel & Brown’s Organic Buttery Yogurt Spread as much as we do. Please let us know in the comments if you’ve used it before, or what you plan on making with it!BrummelandBrown_Greens
