Southern Fried Cabbage

Southern Fried Cabbage is the perfect side dish you’ll love for family or holiday dinners. It’s easy to make with simple ingredients and is loaded with incredible flavor from bacon and spices.


We’ve had an incredible week of cookies and back-to-school cupcakes here on the blog but I am sure we all need a break from all that sweet stuff. So today, we’re going semi-healthy with Southern-style fried cabbage.

I know one pound of bacon and healthy don’t usually come hand in hand but it does add amazing flavor to an otherwise bland side dish and cabbage is, in fact, a low-calorie food rich in vitamins and minerals. #winner

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bacon ends and pieces, chopped
  • 1 onion, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 medium cabbage, cored and chopped (about 5 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
