Everything tastes better with bacon! This looks delicious, and a great way to get my family to eat some cabbage. The cookbooks look helpful too.

Yum. I made some fried cabbage recently. We don't use bacon though because we are vegetarian. But I love and miss me some bacon. sigh

You are so welcome.:) My wife and I were discussing our earliest memories last night about Thanksgiving and food in general. It is amazing me how food in general can bring back the fondest of memories.

I likes me some boiled cabbage. I don't think I've had it fried. I am going to try your recipe. It sounds good. Thank you.

Simple and yet very tasty ... definitely my kind of meal, but maybe not good to have this one everyday!

Shared, tweeted and useful.

My sister makes something like this all the time. She makes it from her grease can. I like your version better. I love cabbage and bacon. Voted Up.

Moonlake, My wife and I use bacon grease when we make this one too! It gives the fried cabbage a great southern taste for sure!
