Cook time: 25-30 minutes | Yield: 4 servings (8 ounce ramekins)

Ingredients

  • 4 strips smoked bacon, lardons
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup leeks, thinly sliced
  • 7 cups collard greens, washed and cut into small pieces
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon hot sauce (Cholula hot sauce)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Zest and juice of lemon
  • 15 oysters, rough chop

Directions

In sauté pan cook the bacon until just crispy. Add the butter and let it melt then add the leeks and cook for about 5 minutes until they soften. Add the collard greens and stir. Once they have wilted, add the heavy cream and hot sauce and stir. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes. Spoon the mixture into four 8-ounce ramekins and top each one with five oysters worth of meat. Cover with lids and place in the oven for 5 minutes until the oysters are warmed through. Remove from the oven and finish with lemon zest and juice on top of each one.
