    I added some crushed fresh garlic and then garnished with chopped basil and parsley. Very tasty!

    I add a chopped sweet onion and it's delish. Saute the the onion in butter until clear. Also, garnish it with a dollop of cider vinegar. Serve vinegar on the side so people can add to taste.

    I'm seeing so many bacon recipes. What kind of bacon doesn't have sugar in it?

    Uncured bacon generally doesn't have sugar. However, most bacon just uses the sugar in the curing process and there isn't residual carbs. Look for a bacon that's 0g carbs per serving.

    This was great! I just cooked the cabbage in the bacon grease and skipped the butter.

    I grew up eating a variation of this (Haluski - a Slovak dish) with noodles and sour cream. We always sauteed an onion with eht bacon then added noodles and mixed in sour cream. So good. I omitted the noodles and still tasted like growing up.

    i modified it a bit sauteed onion and some garlic, bacon and cabbage and carrots ( really thin, useed a peeler super easy and quick) and served it with a chili dressing ( mayonnaise, low fat yogurt, tahini organic unhulled, splash of lemon and chilli powder) ...beautiful, i was really surprised how well everything goes together.
    I will definitely make it again
