Sowsage Sowsage posted some delicious looking cabbage and bacon awhile back. Ever since then I have had the munchies for it. Yesterday at my favorite Amish market they had whole heads of cabbage for $0.49 a piece. Couldn't pass that up especially since I just finished off a new batch of bacon.

Diced up the last lbs. of belly bacon I found in the freezer yesterday and about a half pound of bacon ends from my new run of buckboard.

Adding some onions, gotta have onions right?

Time to add a nice big head of cabbage cut up in bite size pieces. Added it to all the bacon , onions and bacon grease, also added some salt, coarse pepper and red pepper flake to taste.

All finished up just in time for my wife getting home from work. I took the day off after being at a football game and drive home until 3am. Had to try a taste and its pretty good. I think later I will give it a go with eggs like Sowsage did in his post.

Perfect for my keto diet
Hey cool, We have been on keto since last April. All my cooks fit it. I make my own rubs for it as well. Check out my post of the German Fauxtato Salad w/ homemade bratwurst patties on Swiss and rye chaffles. :) all keto

Yep that’s a good add, I sometimes add some too.
Its great that you make it from fresh. We usually grab a ready cut bag of cabbage that includes shaved carrot and a couple of other things. Still turns out pretty good though.

I'm sure that was great. We are having a quick version of Halushki Saturday night. Fried Cabbage and Onions with Bow Tie Pasta. Not Keto Friendly but a family favorite for generations...JJ

Looks good. I haven't made that for a while. I think I know what's for dinner tomorrow.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Looks great!! Smoked sausage is awesome with it. I’m thinking about trying it with crumbled breakfast sausage next.
