I've been making this recipe for over thirty years. Two differences I do are I add a little butter and olive oil after removing the bacon. I then saute a nice sweet chopped onion before adding the cabbage and bacon. Cook covered until tender.I never tried the cheese. Read More

This recipe was just ok! I found it to be a little on the greasy side.The bacon does add flavor to the cabbage but I didn't really enjoy the cheddar cheese in it. this dish yields alot it would probably be best to use it all up because I don't think it would keep too well due to the cheese in the cabbage etc...inetresting dish but I won't be making this one again.

I modified this recipe by adding a chopped onion, three small zuccinis and three small yellow squash sliced in quarter inch rounds, and a tomato sliced lengthwise. Even people who didn't think they liked cooked cabbage enjoyed the dish. The bacon and cheese make the dish! I added two cups of water to make sure the cabbage was cooked because this made a 14" skillet full. Read More

I added 1/2 of a thinly sliced onion 1 shredded carrot 1 sliced stalk of celery and 2 T. extra virgin olive oil. I also used all of the bacon fat instead of only 1 T. This was very very good. Read More

Very simple to make. Next time I will probably use just 4 slices of bacon (I used 5 this time) as I did find it a bit too greasy. I also only used about 1/2 a cup of cheese (combination of Monterey Jack cheddar mozzarella and colby). I'm glad I did as 2 cups would have been way too much. I highly recommend frying sweet onions with the cabbage as it goes very well in the dish. Read More
