Smoked Turkey Legs and Greens

Smoked Turkey Legs and Greens - A healthy meal, very economical, and oh so delicious.

The first time I made this for my husband he said I was going to ruin the nice smoked turkey legs that I bought. Isn't it just like a male to say something like that. Oh well, he be eating those words along with the turkey when I'm done here, I thought to myself. After he ate dinner he was not only chomping on the word "ruin" but singing a totally different tune. He told me that the greens were the most delicious he had ever eaten and the turkey was perfect. (my famous eye roll) This one is definitely a hit!

You will need:
2 smoked turkey legs
1 smoked turkey wing -these usually come with the complete wing, cut into 2 or 3 large chunks
1 lb frozen greens - I like to use mustard greens.
2 cloves garlic
1 cup hot water + 1 chicken bullion cube or 1 cup chicken broth
1/8 tsp red pepper seeds
1/4 cup chopped onions

Empty frozen greens into a 2 quart pot. Mix chicken bullion with hot water (or use chicken broth) and add to greens. Simmer until greens are completely thawed. Add garlic, onion, and red pepper seeds. Simmer for about fifteen minutes to cook onion and blend flavors. Place turkey on top of greens, (do not mix them) cover and continue to simmer for about twenty minutes. Serve with corn muffins or country biscuits.

This meal was prepared for the hubby and I. You can increase amounts as needed. I don't usually measure when I create a new dish so the amounts of pepper seeds and onion are approximate. Be aware that red pepper seeds will probably not need to be doubled unless you like really hot food.
