Food Friday - Sauted Cabbage and Bacon

Hello!  First up, today over at Kellys Korner, she is hosting her weekly "Show Us Your Life" party and today is favorite dessert recipes.   The recipe I have set up to share today is not a dessert but I thought I'd share some links to some of our favorites that I've posted in the past:

Boston Cream Pie Minis - If you love Boston Cream Pie but want a version that you can hold in your hand - check out this recipe.  It's a cupcake version that is fabulous and super easy to make.

Too Much Chocolate Cake  - Need I say more? 

Mountain Dew Cupcakes with Mountain Dew Frosting - yes, you read correctly (but you can use any lemon lime soda)  They are fantastic and I always get rave reviews when I make these.

Turtle Cake - This is a wonderful chocolate caramel goodness of cake.  I always forget how good it is until I make it again :-)

Check out my recipe tab for more dessert recipes and some cookie recipes too.

Now, on to today's Recipe

Sauteed Cabbage and Bacon
adapted from  Comfy In The Kitchen

I've mentioned before that I've acquired a taste for cabbage. Then, add it to bacon and it gets better.  This is such a simple side dish to make and it is a great side to so many things.  I actually cut the bacon up into medium sizes pieces and then cooked it.  Also, next time, I would not use the olive oil.  I found it almost too oily since you don't drain the bacon.  You could always add just a drop of oil if you need more moisture to cook the cabbage in so it doesn't burn. This would make a great side dish with a holiday meal since it cooks on the stove top and is ready so quickly.  :-)

  • 1 head cabbage
  • 6 slices bacon {I use center cut}
  • 1/2 onion chopped

  2. Add olive oil and onions- sautee for appx 3-4 mins.

  4. Add cabbage into stock pot with bacon, renderings, and onions.
  5. Toss with tongs. Bring heat down to medium and let cook for 20 mins until tender.
