Bacon Cabbage Skillet Meal is an easy dish to prepare on top of the stove and goes with just about anything.  This is a great side dish recipe to most any meat or I can make a meal of this and cornbread alone. The onions and cream cheese give the cabbage a great flavor and the bacon just tops it off.

Bacon Cabbage Skillet

3 to 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

1 tablespoon butter

2 tablespoons bacon drippings or oil (I use the drippings from the bacon in this)

1 small head cabbage, chopped (about 6 cups of chopped cabbage)

1/2 small onion, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 teaspoon ground mustard

1 (4 ounce) jar pimentos, drained

4 ounces cream cheese, cut into small pieces

few drops hot sauce or pinch or cayenne (Optional)

Cook bacon, drain, crumble and set aside.  Melt butter in a large skillet, add bacon drippings or oil along with your chopped cabbage and onion.  Sprinkle on black pepper, salt, minced garlic and ground mustard.  Cook cabbage until tender and add pimentos, cream cheese and hot sauce.  Cook until cream cheese is melted and stir in crumbled bacon.  Makes six to eight servings.

Note:  You could use green pepper in place of the pimentos in this dish.
