Cabbage is a super food which means it’s really good for you and your kids. But how do you get them to eat it? This is an idea you might try because the cabbage flavor is masked somewhat by the other ingredients. 🙂 This is not an exact recipe but leaves it open for you to use the ingredients you like and make the amount that fits your family.
We’ll start off with some cabbage chopped in smallish pieces. Cabbage cooks down quite a bit so I suggest you chop up at least half of a head or more.
Using a large skillet, fry several slices of bacon until crispy.
Remove the bacon from the skillet and after it has cooled enough to handle safely, crumble it into small pieces. Set the bacon aside for a little later.
Put the cabbage into the skillet with the bacon grease on a medium heat. Add salt and pepper to suit your taste.
Add 2-3 tablespoons of butter.
Continue cooking till the cabbage softens. Add the bacon pieces into the skillet. Allowing the cabbage to brown some will add to the delicious flavor.
Lastly add in some apple slices and cook for just a couple minutes longer until the apples soften.
Sprinkle some cinnamon on top and stir to combine.
Serve hot as the meal’s vegetable and hopefully everyone will say “Yum!” 🙂
My husband likes to have onion and garlic added to this too. I’d love to hear what you think of this dish! Leave me a comment. 🙂 Thanks for visiting my blog!

Apples are an interesting addition. I’m not sure about cabbage and cinnamon tho! We usually add onions, shredded carrots and some green spices, parsley, basil etc.
That sounds good too! I was pleasantly surprised when I added the cinnamon. I think the apples are what makes it work. 🙂
