CABBAGE, BACON AND POTATO SKILLET

Bacon Cabbage Skillet - TSLCThis Cabbage, Bacon and Potato Skillet is a quick and easy comfort food dish.  We love cabbage and adding bacon and potatoes just makes this vegetable even better.  You can’t beat this with a big old hunk of cornbread on a cold night.

5 to 6 slices bacon

3 tablespoons olive oil or leftover bacon drippings

4 carrots, scraped and thinly sliced

1 onion, peeled and chopped

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon turmeric

4 tablespoons butter (Optional)

1/2 head cabbage, chopped or shredded

4 to 5 potatoes, peeled and cubed

Cook bacon, remove from skillet,  drain and set aside.   Saute onions and carrots until tender in bacon drippings or olive oil.  Stir in butter,  cabbage, salt, pepper, cumin, and turmeric.  Cook uncovered about 20 minutes on medium heat stirring a couple times. Add potatoes, cover and simmer until potatoes are cooked or about another 20 minutes.  Crumble bacon slices on top before serving.  Makes 6 to 8 servings. Enjoy.
