Nancys CREAMED CABBAGE, BACON/HAM CHOWDER

Monday was girls day out! So we went for lunch at Klinks on the LAKE, about 30 miles from Spokane, WA. A delish treat! On the way back home we had to stop at a small vegetable farm, for some fresh produce. LOL! We loaded up with cabbage, beets and
garlic.
Once home I put together a recipe for this chowder, using the whole head. My friends loved it, I hope you will also. It is so creamy and good.
Yesterday we went back for more cabbage, etc. I am now in the process of baking MY RECIPE for STUFFED CABBAGE...48 rolls so far! and counting. Yes I always share with my friends.

5When ready to serve, milk can be added, if needed.
Sprinkle parsley flakes and paprika on top.
I like to add hard boiled eggs, sliced or crumbled on top.
Naturally, with a wee bit of HORSE RADISH SAUCE!
This chowder is great served with any bread recipe,
like my :OVERNIGHT CRUSTY BREAD and no kneading.
