Tested Recipe

I tested the Cabbage with Bacon Recipe. This recipe was easy to make. The instructions were easy to follow. I made it for supper for my family and me. We all loved it. I followed the instructions except that the recipe said 4 pieces of bacon, I had to use more since my bacon was too small. But other than that the recipe was easy to follow. I picked this recipe because it was the only one that I had all the ingredients for. When I first read the recipe, I thought that it wouldn't be enough for four people but I was wrong because we still had some left over. It was good.

2 c shredded cabbage

1. Place the cabbage in a pot with just enough water to cover. Boil for five to seven


2. Prepare the bacon and break into bits.
