  • 1 head of cabbage cored and sliced
  • 4 slices of bacon diced
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sugar


  1. In a large pot cook bacon pieces in over medium heat. Do not drain fat.
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients and with two wooden spoons toss the cabbage and onions pulling from the bottom.
  3. Continue tossing. The cabbage and onion will cook down.
  4. Continue cooking and tossing until desired tenderness is reached.
  5. I cook mine for about 10 minutes.
