Are you ready to try a recipe that will knock your socks? It’s Fried Cabbage! I know you’re probably thinking I have gone off the deep end again and you very well could be right, but I absolutely love fried cabbage! My family and I could probably eat it with every meal if I wanted to…it’s that good! Since so many of you are afraid to try cabbage or maybe you have had a bad batch, I wanted to share my fried cabbage recipe with you.
The way I see it is that you cannot go bad with fried cabbage because it has bacon in it. Anything that has bacon in it is delicious and makes the ultimate dish every time. My husband even loves this dish and I cannot say I’ve ever gotten him to eat cabbage any other way before.
I love to pull this recipe out when I know my family needs a nice little change. Eating pizza, pasta, and chicken can get a little old. This is a recipe I can count on my family loving! Try it for yourself and enjoy this ultimate side dish with your family tonight!
