    This was super simple. I skipped the butter and oven and just sauteed the cooked cabbage in the bacon grease.  -  29 Mar 2012


    We love cabbage and we love bacon. I didn't add the entire 2 tsp of nutmeg, I couldn't bring myself to do it - I just sprinkled the top lightly. I really enjoyed the addition of the red wine vinegar. Some onion with the cabbage would be a good addition. Thanks for sharing your recipe.  -  10 Mar 2012


    We enjoyed this recipe. I normally would not add nutmeg to a savory dish but did to follow the recipe. It added a depth of flavor I didn't expect and we really liked it. Will make this again.  -  30 Mar 2012
