Easy Fried Cabbage


  Use whatever type of bacon you like- regular, turkey or even vegan. Just remember that turkey bacon and vegan bacon are not very oily and additional oil or butter must be added.
– Use a non-stick pan so that none of the ingredients stick to the pan.
– Make sure to finely chop your onions because they blend together much better with the cabbage.
– Don’t over-cook the cabbage or else the texture becomes very soft and “mushy” and it’s just weird. –  Instead of bacon, you can also use sausage.


  • 5-6  thick bacon strips Cut into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup onion Finely chopped
  • 1/2  head green cabbage shredded or roughly chopped
  •  tablespoon brown sugar Optional
  • Salt To taste
  • Pepper To taste
  • 1/4 tsp Smoked paprika


  • Cook bacon in a non-stick pan over medium heat until crisp. Use a slotted spatula to remove the bacon and place it on plate. Do not discard the bacon grease and drippings!

  • In the same pan, add onion and cook until translucent.

  • Add cabbage, salt, pepper, paprika and mix everything together. Cook for about 7 minutes or until cabbage is tender.

  • Add bacon back into the pan and mix it together with the cabbage and serve warm.

  •  You can also make this side dish vegetarian by omitting bacon. Make sure to use 2-3 tbsp unsalted butter.
    - Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
