Baked Cabbage

Jeanne Benavidez


A friend of mine gave me this recipe. He always makes this on New Year's Eve while I make the black-eyed peas and cornbread. We make enough to feed the crowd that comes over to bring in the new year. This is really delicious and very easy. He usually does this on the grill outside but since I'm not the best grill person.....I prefer to bake it in the oven.

    garlic, minced

How to Make Baked Cabbage


  1. Carefully, using a long, sharp knife, cut the cabbage into quarters and remove the core. Place wedges in a large, foil-lined baking dish.
  2. Place the sliced onion and minced garlic over the cabbage.
  3. Sprinkle with black pepper.
  4. Dot with butter or margarine. I use 2 or 3 tablespoons, depending on the size of the cabbage.
  5. Add pieces of raw bacon (as much as you prefer) on top of the cabbage. This will add a wonderful flavor.
  6. Don't add salt to this before cooking. It will draw out the moisture in the cabbage. You can add kosher salt (or any of Mrs Dash's Blends that you want) after it is cooked.
  7. Wrap tightly in heavy duty aluminum foil.
  8. Bake for @ 30 minutes to an hour at 350 deg F, again, depending on the size of the cabbage. I don't like mine mushy but you can cook it to suit your taste.
  9. WARNING: Be very careful when you open this....the steam that escapes will burn you.
