Tasty mustard greens are made with frozen mustard greens. Use less bacon and add some leftover diced ham, if you'd like the smoked ham flavor. Diced hot andouille sausage is great on the greens as well.
Southern greens are traditionally served with hot pepper sauce, which is a combination of small hot peppers and vinegar. If you can't find hot pepper sauce in your market, see the tips for how to make it from scratch.
