Irish Bacon and Cabbage Soup
When my family does our grocery shopping, we typically write a list (like most people). Our list usually consists of the meals we plan to eat for the week ahead; and this list is usually themed (i.e. Mexican Week, Italian Week, etc.). For this week's theme, we decided to go the Irish route and prepare and dine on classical Irish cuisines.
I'm a mom of two kids. My life stays busy, and so I always try to find easy-to-make meals that are delicious and quick to fix. I came across this recipe and just had to share it. It's quick, easy, and oober yummy and is great for cold nights and sick days. Tweak it as you please and enjoy!
- 1/2 - 1 pound Bacon
- 4 medium Potatoes, peeled, chopped
- 1 (15 oz.) can Diced Tomatoes, don't drain

- Stir in cabbage bits, cover, and let simmer for about 5 minutes, or until cabbage is slightly tender.
- Serve and sprinkle cheese to be melted on top.
