Fried Cabbage w/Crumbled Bacon and Onion


You’re probably saying, “Really, fried cabbage?"  
I know I did!




We really like cabbage and bacon too ~ just like magic ~ I saw recipes for it everywhere, and knew immediately it was a "must try," with the operative word being bacon!  

Fried cabbage isn’t very healthy compared to a lot of other methods of cooking; we usually enjoy it as slaw or steamed and eaten with only salt and pepper.  But this recipe is so delicious it’s worth eating it for pleasure!

A whole head of cabbage sounds like a lot, but you know how it shrinks when cooking, so this is good for 4 people or 2 like us, helping ourselves to a second serving.  It’s that good!




Cook the bacon crisp, scrape the bacon remnants, that adds flavor, it caramelizes and adds color too.  No added water needed, there’s plenty of moisture in cabbage.  

A splash of vinegar and a little sugar to waken up your taste buds, sprinkle on salt and pepper, it’s done.  Omit vinegar and sugar, if you’d rather.

This is soooo delicious and very easy to prepare ~ you may be adding it to your repertoire of "go to” side dishes also!  (It’s great leftover too!)

If you like cabbage and bacon, this is a win, win!

  5. Your recipe looks like a winner! My daughter introduced us to a similar dish, and we've made it a couple of times. I have cabbage right now, but used up our bacon, so it might be a while before we have it again. We're not shopping much, just staying home like so many people in this emergency.

  6. Cabbage and bacon is a fine combination. Fried, is not so healthy but it's tastier than any other version. I'll sure try it.

  16. This sounds so good. Love the additional of fennel. Cabbage has a pretty good "shelf" life so this is a good recipe for now. Stay safe!

  17. Wanted to let you know that I made this a couple of weeks ago and it was awesome! My husband isn't much of a cabbage person, but he enjoyed this as much as I did. I think it was the bacon. :) Thanks!
