Bacon is destined for far more than sitting next to your pancakes in the morning. Make this Southern Fried Cabbage with Bacon and see just how much smoky flavor and saltiness your favorite pork product can add to otherwise bland cabbage. When you sautee cabbage with butter, bacon, onions, and nutmeg, something amazing happens. The cabbage itself becomes soft and tender, and it absorbs all of those wonderful flavors. The bacon crisps up to provide a great contrast of texture to the softened veggies. Serve this Southern classic alongside your favorite entree, and everyone will be begging for the recipe.
