Casseroles are a Southern tradition. We love food gifting and Casseroles are a food gifting favorite. When folks are sick, have a new baby or have a death in the family, the Casserole is a must to take when you go and visit. I believe this simple act has healing powers. LOL.

Fried cabbage is a thing of real beauty. There is just something about frying a head of cabbage that is so easy it almost negates the name of frying. Taking about a half a pound of bacon and frying it up and then putting the cabbage in to almost slow cook in the bacon grease. Now, add to that some great casserole components and you have a real treat! So Let’s get to it!

Fried Cabbage Casserole: A new favorite

Now, I can just about guarantee, if you fix this and take is as a food gift, I bet it will be a Favorite but there may not be another in the recipient’s freezer. We love taking traditional Southern cooking and making it new and even more decadent. This recipe is a great example of that. For another great way to use cabbage, check out this Mexican Unstuffed Cabbage. Your folks will love it too!

It is also a great way to get your kids to eat those pesky vegetables. I can remember as a kid, I hated cabbage. It was always boiled or stewed and just tasted like, well…cabbage. You can just about bet, if you add cheese and bacon to any vegetable, most kids will eat it. I know I will! I am still a kid after all!
