Yep. That’s right collard green egg roll. Why? Because we love collard greens and Chinese food in the south and that’s how we roll. Get it roll!!! I remember my wonderful grandmother making collard greens early Sunday morning always adding a little sugar. My father on the other hand made them hot and spicy served with raw onion. Both dishes were great.
