Cabbage has always been a favorite dish in the South any way you prepare it.

This makes a great side dish or just add some of my cornbread and make a meal out of it. I love cabbage and it is more or less a staple in my house.  I always have a head of cabbage in the fridge.  I love that his vegetable is so versatile and can be prepared so many different ways by just adding a meat or other vegetables.

Ingredients for Southern style cabbage:

4 to 6 slices of bacon, cooked crisp

2 tablespoons bacon drippings

2 tablespoons butter

1 medium onion, peeled and chopped

1 medium sweet green pepper, chopped (can use a combination of both red and green)

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 small head cabbage, chopped

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, (optional)

1 cup chicken broth

paprika

Cook bacon until crisp, remove from pan and drain on paper towel. Set bacon aside. Remove excess bacon drippings from pan reserving 2 tablespoons. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter into the bacon drippings in your pan. Add chopped onion, peppers, minced garlic, chopped cabbage, salt, pepper, Cajun seasoning and chicken broth to pan. Cook on medium low heat, covered for 15 to 20 minutes until cabbage reaches the consistency of softness you like. Some people like their cabbage kind of crispy while others like it well done. Remove from heat, crumble bacon on top, sprinkle with paprika. Makes about 6 servings. Enjoy!
