Dinner is Served

This is my family’s most requested dinner, and if there’s any leftover… it’s even better the next day!  I admit, when I first heard of combining these ingredients I wasn’t convinced it would be edible.  Ooooooh wee!  Was I wrong!  I make this atleast twice a month, and I’m confident you will too.

When cooking with bacon there’s no doubt that more is ALWAYS better.  Especially when you have to taste test the goods!

Bacon, Cabbage & Noodles

1.5 lb Bacon or more!!

3/4 Large Cabbage (6 cups-ish) – chopped into 1″ pieces

3-4 Handfuls of Egg Noodles

1 Small Onion – diced

Pepper to taste

40 minute cook time – Feeds 4-6

Start by frying your bacon in a large pan on medium heat, make sure the pan is large enough to contain all of the ingredients.  I like to gently fold my bacon in half then in half again and stand it up in the pan so that the whole package of bacon fits in the pan at once.

Once the bacon gets going, start boiling your water for the noodles.  Follow the directions on your package for these, usually boiling just 8-10 minutes.

Multitasking is important here!  If you aren’t confident in the kitchen you can chop your veggies before starting.  So we have bacon frying (don’t forget to turn every few minutes), and water boiling; it’s time to chop the cabbage and onion.  I prefer 1″ cubes for the cabbage and diced onions.

Remove the bacon when it’s cooked to your liking and place on a paper towel to crisp.  Promptly pour part of the bacon grease into a jar (I keep mine in an old pickle jar to use in place of butter on grilled cheese) reserving about 3 Tablespoons in the pan.

 

Return the pan to the heat and add the cabbage and onions.  Cook these until slightly transparent, making sure to scrape the browned goodness from the bottom of the pan.

Now is a good time to check your noodles!  Drain them if they’re done and set aside.  The bacon will be cooled enough to handle now, so chop it up and set aside.

When the veggies are slightly transparent add your drained noodles and chopped bacon.

Pepper to taste… and BOOM!  Dinner is served.  Let me know how much you and your family loved this!
