Baked Cabbage

1 head cabbage cut into 4 equal pieces
6-8 pieces pre-cooked bacon
1 Tbsp. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place cabbage on top of a large piece of foil (big enough to wrap completely, may even take 2 pieces depending on size of cabbage.).  Sprikle bacon over cabbage.  Drizzle with oil.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Place in a baking dish.  Bake 45-50 minutes or until cabbage is soft but not mushy.

Comment:  I found this recipe on Pinterest where it had been submitted by  Their method of cooking was to grill, I decided to bake.  They used uncooked bacon, I opted for the pre-cooked and a small amount of olive oil.  Using the pre-cooked cut down on the grease coming from the bacon but still gave flavor throughout the cabbage.  The dish is delicious and really pretty when served.  It's also a great dish to cook while the oven is already in use with another dish.
