Cabbage and Bacon, bookmarked at A Wee Bit of Cooking

(serves one for lunch according to Wendy, though I have found it the perfect dinner too!)

3 rashers of smoked bacon, chopped roughly

250g cabbage leaves, stalks cut out, leaves shredded (that’s about 1/6 of a cabbage. I usually slice a cabbage in half, then hack off a wedge from one of the halves)

Salt and pepper

1 tblspn creme fraiche (optional – note, it sounds crazy, but Greek yogurt worked well here as well)

Add the bacon to a non-stick frying pan and warm over a medium heat. After a few minutes the bacon will begin to release it’s fat. Cook for 5 more minutes. Add the cabbage to the pan and combine well with the bacon. Increase the heat slightly and saute for 5-7 more minutes until the cabbage is wilted and soft. Add the creme fraiche and season carefully (remember the bacon will have added a lot of salt to the dish already). Serve on its own or atop some toasted bread.
