Roasted Cabbage Wedges

A more appropriate title for this post might be "The best cabbage you've ever eaten. Ever. No really, I mean it."  Although Irish blood does pump through my veins, I've never been big on cabbage as a side dish. Until now. After receiving an abundance of cabbage week after week in our CSA delivery, I had to figure out new ways to prepare it.  A family can only consume so much coleslaw week after week...although, I do love coleslaw, and you can find my egg free, dairy free recipe HERE. I stumbled upon the magical combination of cabbage and bacon, and the transformative power of roasting the two together, and now, I can't wait for more cabbage from our local farm. The edges turn brown and crispy, the bacon fat bastes the wedges, and the inner leaves come out soft and buttery feeling. It's delightful. I love it so much, I might try to grow a few heads in our garden, just for this!

1 head of cabbage, cut into 8 wedges, core removed
Organic bacon, slices cut in half 
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. *Lay wedges flat side down, on a baking sheet.
  3. *Drizzle with olive oil and generously season with salt and pepper.
  4. *Lay 2-3 strips of bacon over each wedge. Make sure none of the bacon overlaps.
  5. Roast for 15 minutes and turn wedges over. (Yes the bacon will slide off a bit, it's ok!)
  6. Roast for another 15 minutes until the edges of the cabbage are brown and beautiful.  If they aren't brown yet, continue roasting until they are!
  7. Serve, salivate, and wonder why you didn't do this before.
