Maple Cabbage & Bacon



The name of this recipe will either intrigue or disgust you– I get that. Nonetheless, it is, far and away, one of my husband’s very favorite lunches. It is also a great way to get non-cabbage-lovers on board with eating the stuff.

Cabbage wilted with onions, bacon, and a hint of maple syrup makes for a tasty side dish or affordable lunch.
  • ½ lb. bacon (uncooked), chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 large head cabbage, shredded
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  1. In very large skillet (or even a stockpot), cook chopped bacon over medium heat.
  2. When bacon is about halfway cooked, add chopped onion and cook until translucent.
  3. Working in batches-- however much you can fit-- add in shredded cabbage and stir frequently. It will wilt down and make room for more cabbage. Continue until all cabbage is wilted, about 5 - 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Season with black pepper.
  6. Pour maple syrup over cabbage and stir/toss to evenly coat.
