  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or chopped
  • 1 large head green or red cabbage, cored and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon, (or seasoned salt)
  • Salt and cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon each onion powder and garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, (I use Slap Ya Mama) or smoky paprika


  • Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crispy. Transfer bacon to a plate with a slotted spoon. Do not discard bacon drippings.
  • Sauté the onion in the bacon grease until the onion caramelizes (about 8 minutes). Add the garlic and cook until fragrant (30 seconds).
  • Stir in the cabbage and cook for a further 8 minutes while stirring occasionally. Season with the bouillon, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning (or paprika).
  • Mix bacon into the cabbage to warm through and serve.
