Change up your Thanksgiving side dish routine and add some cabbage to the rotation. Cabbage is economical, readily available at the grocery store, and has a long shelf-life in the refrigerator. I know you probably don’t think about cabbage much; it’s definitely not the first thing that comes to mind, especially for a holiday. But this recipe is here to change all that. Trust us.
Even if you swear you don’t like cabbage, you probably will after the first bite of this dish. It’s been cooked in cream, giving it a rich, buttery flavor, and it’s topped with bacon to add smoky crunch.
Best of all, this dish is simple to prepare. We know you’ll be working extra hard on Thanksgiving Day, so it’s nice to have an easy recipe you can throw together. Use a food processor to quickly slice the cabbage. (You can do this a day ahead.) Blanch the cabbage for a few minutes in boiling water, simmer it in cream and then top it with bacon. This savory side dish will be sure to impress even the most stubborn veggie skeptic at the table (it does have bacon after all).
