Sharing is caring!


Fried Cabbage with Bacon and noodles

So this dish is made in my house probably wayyy too much for a recipe with a pound of bacon in it, but it has cabbage in it so that makes it healthy ya know lol! This is a very simple dish that is huge on flavor, we usually have aside some garlic roasted chicken or just some sliced up kielbasa but it is hearty enough to be a meal on it’s own.

Bacon is diced and fried up, onions and cabbage caramelized till tender and the whole shebang is tossed with egg noodles and a sprinkle of black pepper and it is to die for!!

Some nights when I make this I will take a shortcut and use a bagged coleslaw mix instead of chopping a whole head of cabbage, however, a head of cabbage is so ridiculously cheap so it’s a price vs convenience thing on whether you use the coleslaw mix or a head of cabbage. If you do go the packaged coleslaw route you do get some carrots in the mix usually and that just adds a little something extra to the dish.

Four ingredients make a super simple noodle dish that even my kids love and ask for. Even if you don’t think you like cabbage you definitely have to give this recipe a try!!! (I mean really has bacon ever steered you wrong?)

  5. holy moses, that sounds amazing! 1 lb of bacon is a good thing :-) I’m thinking this is going on our fall rotation menu and would probably be awesome with some artichokes, too.

  7. When i make this i add sour cream. Others i know add cottage cheese. Regular or low fat is up to you. This is a comfort food. My family grew up eating it. It’s a Polish thing. Lol

  8. I make a version of this where I add 1/4 Cup (good splash) of cider vinegar when cooking the cabbage. It gives it good flavor and makes the bacon snap! Thanks for posting!

  9. This dish is so delicious and very easy to make. Thank you! One recipe feeds my husband and I for two supper meals and him a lunch meal. He asks me to make it once a week since I found your recipe a month ago.
