Southern Fried Cabbage


1 lb bacon, chopped

1 white onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 head green cabbage, cored and chopped into bite-sized pieces

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, but leave drippings in pan.

Add onion to skillet and cook until soft, 6-8 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more.

Add chopped cabbage, along with paprika, cayenne pepper (if using), and season with salt and pepper.

Cook, stirring frequently, until cabbage is tender, 8-10 minutes. Add bacon back to skillet and stir to combine.

Serve and enjoy!
