  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1/2 large yellow onion diced
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen chopped turnip greens, thawed and drained
  • 1 (15-ounce) jar prepared Alfredo sauce
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, cubed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Tortilla chips or fried pork skins for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease a 2-quart baking dish.
  • In a large skillet cook the bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon, drain on paper towels, and crumble. Carefully pour away all but about 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease; return the pan to the heat, and add the onions. Cook about 3 minutes. Add the turnip greens and cook 8 to 10 minutes. Add the Alfredo sauce, cream cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook until the cream cheese has melted and the mixture is bubbly. Stir in the crumbled bacon.
  • Transfer the mixture to the baking dish, and bake 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Turn on the oven’s broiler, and return the baking dish to the oven for 5 minutes.
  • Serve with tortilla chips or fried pork skins.
