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 food.com. 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.
