Fried Cabbage Recipe


Southern Fried Cabbage – So simple yet absolutely ADDICTING!!! Bacon gives it the smoky flavor that is put over the top by a little bit of brown sugar and apple cider vinegar!!


I personally love cabbage but I have been making this recipe for the past few months. It has become my go to recipe. Thank you so much for sharing it. #stapledish

I admit to being a cabbage junkie. I’ve tried other similar fried cabbage dishes over the years but last week I stumbled upon your version and had to give it a try….I’m hooked. My husband is hooked. My son is coming over later this week…I’m sure he will be hooked. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful dish!!

Thank you!! I did not like cabbage as a kid, however as an adult I love it. Tonight I decided to try another way of cooking it. This was wonderful. I haven’t even completed the rest of my meal and I’m already eating this. Haven’t decided if I will share this with my mom, and I’m sure you can figure out why… Lol. Thanks again.
