Creamed Cabbage

4 slices of bacon
cup of butter
1 tbsp of all purpose flour
1 tsp of salt
1 large cored and shredded head cabbage
cup of sour cream

In a large deep skillet, cook the bacon over medium high heat for 10 minutes until browned on all sides. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set aside.

In the same skillet with the drippings, add in the butter, flour, salt and cabbage and cook for 15 minutes while stirring occasionally. Once the bacon is cooled, crumble it and add to the cabbage with sour cream.

It's amazingly delicious. It was very difficult not to sit there and eat the whole pan of the stuff.

PS - if you want to cut back a bit on the fat and calories, I've also made this without adding the butter (plus I used light sour cream) and it still came out fantastic. As long as you're using fatty bacon, you have enough fat there to cook the cabbage and, if you need a little more moisture until the cabbage is cooked to desired consistency, just add in a little water.

It's funny, when I came across this recipe, I was like "Well that's different" because creaming cabbage is something that never even crossed my mind. I love creamed corn, I love creamed peas, I've even made a casserole of creamed onions. So I had to try it. It was love at first bite.

Lol, rascal, you'd put mint sauce on ice cream.

Hey, that sounds good. Not what I meant.

You'd put mint sauce on orange supremes.

Ohhhh yes. I think fresh cream, the best stuff ever, would work well with this.

I was thinking of fresh cream, as well, or maybe some creme fraiche. Definitely sounds good.

Cabbage is one of the very few green veggies I am allowed to eat. And this recipe sounds like heaven. I know Pirate will love it. Thank you so much.

You're very welcome. I'm fixing it tomorrow for Sunday dinner along with parmesan/panko-crusted chicken breasts. Looking forward to it.
