Butter fried cabbage with crispy bacon - it's tasty!


Bacon, cabbage and a touch of butter... some may say a perfect combination!

Fried cabbage with bacon can be perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you’re super hungry, feel free to add a couple of fried eggs or a dollop (spoonful) of mayonnaise. 


You can also serve this fried cabbage as a side dish, or pair it with a main course like a juicy oven-baked chicken.


Ingredients:
Serves Two
9g carb per serving

10 oz. bacon
1 lb green cabbage or pointed cabbages (Pointed Cabbage is also known as Chinese Cabbage).
2 oz. butter
salt and pepper
Please see cooking instructions here

Did you know that ...
"Despite its impressive nutrient content, cabbage is often overlooked. While it may look a lot like lettuce, it actually belongs to the Brassica genus of vegetables, which includes broccoli, cauliflower and kale. It comes in a variety of shapes and colours, including red, purple, white and green, and its leaves can be either crinkled or smooth. This vegetable has been grown around the world for thousands of years and can be found in a variety of dishes, including sauerkraut, kimchi and coleslaw. Additionally, cabbage is loaded with vitamins and minerals.


Cabbage is an exceptionally healthy food. It has an outstanding nutrient profile and is especially high in vitamins C and K. In addition, eating cabbage may even help lower the risk of certain diseases, improve digestion and combat inflammation. Plus, cabbage makes a tasty and inexpensive addition to a number of recipes. With so many potential health benefits, it is easy to see why cabbage deserves some time in the spotlight and some room on your plate."

That sounds sooooo good. I sometimes cook ground chuck and then combine it with chopped cabbage, spices, and tomato sauce. It's like making stuffed cabbage without all the fuss or the rice. It's good, but your dish with bacon sounds even better. I mean... bacon! I'll definitely give this one a try. Thanks!

This looks really tasty, but I'm trying to imagine the flavor and I kind of just can't. Might have to try it. :)

Hello,
Cabbage is a favorite here at this house. My husband makes a wonderful coleslaw. I have had good years and bad years growing my own. We have a worm that tends to get into my cabbage in the garden.

Cabbage is so often associated with being a soggy school dinner mush.
This certainly looks much tastier.

I haven't fried cabbage in awhile either. This looks very tasty! Hugs!

We eat cabbage often (various kinds of cabbage) but mainly raw in salads and cooked in stir fries. It seems almost counter productive to add bacon with all its nitrites, salt, grease etc.

Cabbage on offer at Aldi this week. Trouble is, for just the two of us one cabbage gets a little too much. I must try this recipe to ring the changes a little.

No bacon for me though. Still yummy!
