  • “This was my first time to make cabbage, and my husband was sure that he hated it. When I finished cooking and he smelled it.. he had to try it, and now he LOVES it. We make this a couple times a month. Thank you so much!!”

  • “The flavor of this cabbage was very good. I cut the recipe in half because there was only 3 of us. Made as written. Thanks Adam K.Bullwinkle”

  • “Loved this recipe! I did not use 2 heads of cabbage and still used more than 5 slices of bacon and it turned out wonderful. It was my first time cooking cabbage and we were all very impressed. Thank you sharing!”
