Grilled Cabbage with Bacon and Onions

Cabbage is a nice side to almost any grilled meat, and goes well with grilled pork and grilled chicken. Grill it as your meat is grilling. Even "non-cabbage" eaters will enjoy!

6 wedges


  • 1 medium head cabbage, cored

  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 3 teaspoons white sugar (Optional)

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • ¼ cup crumbled cooked bacon

  • ¼ cup chopped onion

  • ¼ cup chopped green bell pepper

  • ¼ cup chopped garlic


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Slice cabbage into 6 wedges.

  2. Place each cabbage wedge on a sheet of double-lined foil. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1/2 teaspoon sugar to each wedge. Drizzle each with 1 tablespoon melted butter. Add bacon, onion, bell pepper, and garlic to each evenly. Wrap up with foil.

  3. Cook on the preheated grill until tender, about 30 minutes, turning after 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can use margarine instead of butter. Use 1 cup total of any of the add-ins.

This can also be made in the oven. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
