My family loves this fried cabbage recipe. I serve it with homemade cornbread. Make a lot, because there will not be any left.

I changed this a bit by adding a whole lb of bacon (yum) and 1/2 large onion to 1/2 head of chopped cabbage. Also added a capsule of Turmeric Curcumin (1000 mg) instead of paprica. Can sprinkle paprica on top when serving. Read More

Recipe is awesome! Made the same thing but substituted salt for Mrs. Dash table blend. The bacon was salty enough. Also didn't have a cabbage available so used a pre-chopped cabbage salad mix (basically multiple types of cabbage including, green, red, and kale.) Read More

I made it as is and I will make it again. It was great with our black-eyed peas and cornbread for New Year's Day. Read More

I love fried cabbage! The only thing I did different was instead of frying bacon, I used real bacon bits from Sam's Club. I still fried the cabbage in bacon grease that I store in fridge for when I'm cooking venison. I will definitely make this again. We both loved it! Read More

I was so surprised. I never know what to do with cabbage. Now I do. This was quite easy and delicious. I happened to have some red kale so I added that with the cabbage and it made it so nice and bright. Worked perfectly! Read More
