Sauteed Cabbage with Bacon

Please follow and like us:

This is a delicious way to eat cabbage AND it’s only 1 point for blue, green and purple!

Plus it has bacon!! Bacon added to anything makes it better. 🙂

The serving size will depend on the size of your head of cabbage, but each serving was 1 heaping cup.

That’s a large serving for only 1 point!

This Sauteed Cabbage with Bacon goes great with chicken, pork or even a burger!

I started this dish by cooking up the bacon. When the bacon was done I set it aside.

You don’t want to clean out the pan! I used the bacon grease to cook the onions and the cabbage.

I made sure to add points for the bacon grease. Even with that it only came to 1 point per serving.

I use center cut bacon, it’s not quite as greasy as regular bacon.

It only takes about 10 minutes to saute the cabbage. While it’s cooking I broke up the bacon into small pieces.

Once the cabbage was cooked I added the bacon back in, then served it!

Easy peasy!
