Cabbage with Bacon

I know many folks are not fans of cabbage. Even if you are one of them, it’s worth trying this recipe! Bacon makes everything better, even cabbage.


Half a medium head of cabbage, roughly chopped

1/2 pound bacon, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

Chop your bacon into bite size pieces and add to a warm pan. I like my bacon chewy rather than crispy. So, I fry this up at a low temp, just until the fat is translucent. Depending on your bacon, your pan should have plenty of oiliness for the cabbage. If not, add a bit of olive oil or lard.

Add your cabbage to the pan and mix it well. I sprinkle with just a bit of salt during this step, you can skip this if you choose. At this point you can turn up the heat if you plan to stand at the stove to stir this. If you have a toddler in the house, like I do, keep it lower and stir when you can.

Depending on your temp, you may cook this for 10-20 minutes. Stir it often to avoid anything getting crispy. When this is all finished the cabbage will be translucent and have a great caramel color. Try it with your picky kids or spouse, we shoveled it down at are house. This stuff is awesome!
