Too many chefs may spoil the kitchen, but Good Morning America doesn't think it will do much harm to their studio.

As our "We're Cooking Now" series continues, our GMA family members will continue to reveal their own amazing family recipes.

Robin Roberts wore the chef hat and shared some of her family's time-tested recipes, including a collard green recipe from her grandfather.

Make Roberts' amazing family dishes for your own loved ones at home.

Ingredients

  • 5 meaty ham hocks
  • 2 large bunches of collard greens
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Cooking Directions

    Wash five meaty ham hocks well and place them in a heavy large pot with ample water to cover them. Cook for about 1 1/2 hours before adding collard greens.

    In the meantime carefully separate two large bunches of collard greens. Rinse until water is clear.

    With fingers tear leaves into small pieces and drop into ham liquid (after it has been cooking for 1 1/2 hours).

    With a wooden spoon, stir collards until all of them are coated with ham liquid. Sprinkle the collards in liquid with one tablespoon of sugar.

    Cover pot and simmer for at least 2-3 hours, stirring frequently and adding water as necessary to prevent collards from sticking to pot.

    Serve collards directly from pot on stove to serving plate. (Roberts' grandfather always added a few squirts of bottled pepper sauce to enhance the flavor.)
