Easy skillet-fried cabbage with bacon made with minimal ingredients. This makes the perfect side dish!
Hey cousins! Many years ago, I shared one of my fried cabbage recipes with y’all. Many of you loved the recipe, and still use it to this very day. However, a few cousins asked if I could share my fried cabbage recipe without using peppers, and broth.
The answer is yes!! Broth, and peppers are definitely an optional addition. I don’t always use make my fried cabbage the exact same way. Sometimes I just like really simple skillet-fried cabbage with bacon and onions.
This cabbage recipe is super easy to make, and you can use any type of cabbage for this recipe.
When it comes to bacon, I like using the fatty bacon ends because it renders more bacon grease. More bacon grease means more flavor for this side dish, in my opinion.
When I make this recipe, I like to pair it with my turkey meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Or maybe make a complete soul food meal with pigs feet, potato salad, and this cabbage.
