Serves 6-8 | Prep Time 40 | Cook Time 15


12-16 ounces package bacon,
1 large sweet onion, sliced
1 head of cabbage
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cut the bacon into 1/2" pieces and place in a large skillet. Cook over medium heat until crispy, then remove bacon and put aside. Reserve all the bacon fat.

Cook the onion in the bacon fat until it's translucent and somewhat tender.

Quarter, core and coarsely shred the cabbage. Add to the skillet and toss with the onions and fat until coated. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes, then uncover, toss again to mix and add salt and pepper to taste. Cook a minute or two more until the cabbage is barely tender, mix in bacon. Eat, moan with pleasure.

This is unbelievably good. Make sure you use sweet onions if at all possible.

I love this too. My husband likes it with fine egg noodles cooked and added. Delish!

I make this dish, but at the end I add (1) can Rotel tomatoes - (canned diced tomatoes with green chili's). It adds a spicy flavor, but oh so good. My family loves it!!!!
