Roast Cabbage with Bacon


Cabbage is a great side dish and so economical, especially during the summer.  I recently tried and tweaked this roast cabbage recipe from Green Lite Bites.com. and my husband raved, so it's a keeper.

I served it with breaded pork chops and a salad.


A splash of balsamic vinegar was also added, as we like it on cabbage, brussel sprouts, and also spinach.


When I buy a head of cabbage for the two of us, I  slice it in half and make cole slaw to have on hand for meals, then use the other half for a cooked or roasted vegetable dish like this.

Preheat the oven (or grill) to 425 degrees.

Mix olive oil, bacon , lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to make a marinade.

Place wedge on foil and drizzle a few tablespoons of marinade over wedge, then wrap each wedge and bake 20-30 minutes. If they're going to sit awhile, take out at 20 minutes. If desired, splash with a bit of balsamic vinegar when serving.


Leftovers can be frozen and reheated in the microwave.
