Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Onion, and Garlic


  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 cabbage, cored and sliced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


In a large skillet cook bacon until crispy. Remove from skillet and discard all but 1 Tablespoon of bacon drippings. Add the oil to the pan and add onion and cook 2 minutes. Add the cabbage and the salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Let the cabbage cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Place on a plate and top with bacon.


While bacon drippings are yummy, we prefer to have them as a back note in this dish rather than a focal point. Save the remaining drippings for another day.

You can also substitute the bacon for smoked sausage. Delish!
