Boiled Cabbage with Crispy Bacon

So this little gem is just something I made for myself. Hubby doesn’t like cabbage…at all. But, I adore it and could eat it all the time. To me boiled cabbage is another one of those comfort foods that I crave. Normally I just add the bacon to the cabbage when it is cooking to infuse it with smokiness. This time I decided to fry the bacon off before hand, use the drippings then top off the cabbage with little crisp bacony goodness. It was amazing.

With the reserved bacon drippings (liquid bacon, hehe) cook the onions over medium low heat until just a little color is on them and are translucent.

At this point add the cabbage and coat in the fat. Add water until the cabbage is just covered and add the dried spices.

Cover this and cook on a high simmer until cabbage is very tender. At least an hour will be needed for this step. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Add the butter just before serving and top with crispy bacon pieces when ready to eat! Yummy, I know this is an extremely simple dish but I thought you might enjoy it! Thanks for reading!

  1. Oh, man. Cabbage is the bomb.com! A large part of my heritage is Czechoslovakian so cabbage is frequently devoured by yours truly, lol. That looks absolutely delicious–and so does the White Peach Sangria in the post prior to this one. I need you to teach me how to work some magic in the kitchen! I’m ashamed to admit that I’m a terrible cook.

  2. My husband and I both like cabbage, but my kids don’t so I usually fix it on evenings when the kids aren’t home for some reason. Your cabbage looks wonderful, you can’t go wrong with crispy bacon. 🙂
