I KNOW!

Saint Patrick’s day was YESTERDAY.

I know…

But… I’m making this tonight.  For a group of girls coming over.

Then, I’m making it for may parents when they come to visit later this week.

I kinda fell in love with it because it is SOO easy – in a crock pot.  And SOOOOO tasty.

Even if you’re not a cabbage fan, you MUST try this cabbage on the grill sometime this year.  It is the best veggie I’ve ever eaten.  And my kids want more of it than any other veggie I’ve given them.  (But what isn’t good when you take the ‘health’ out of it with bacon and butter?)

 

Bacon Makes it Better Cabbage:

Ingredients:

Head of Cabbage

1/4 pound of bacon

1/2 stick of butter

Cavenders Seasoning

Spray Butter

1/2 onion – optional.  I didn’t use it.

Layer all ingredients in a aluminum foil pan (if you’re grilling).  Make sure to shake Cavenders on each layer.  Use the spray butter to make it stick.

Cover with foil.  Grill for 45 minutes to an hour.  (Or bake in an oven at 400 degrees)
