50% of the people like it 100% of the time!

I am always looking for a new side dish recipe.

My husband thinks two potato dishes are all you need to round out a main course of meat.  Peter thinks meat alone is just fine.  Sarah is a little more adventurous but is typically just fine with potatoes and bread.

I continue the quest, usually in vain, to find a few vegetable dishes we can all eat and enjoy.

Last week, I tried a sauteed cabagge receipe.  And believe it or not - they all hated it!  HA!

I liked it.  My mom and brother liked it.  And I think my sister-in-law liked it.

Since 50% of us thought it was good, I figured I would share it here with all of you.

Sauteed Cabbage with Bacon, Onion and Garlic


  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 large onion, diced 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1 large head cabbage, cored and sliced 
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste 
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder 


Place the bacon in a large stockpot and cook over medium-high heat until crispy, about 10 minutes. Add the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion caramelizes; about 10 minutes. Immediately stir in the cabbage and continue to cook and stir another 10 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and onion powder.
Serve and enjoy!
And if you try it, let me know what you think.  And if you have any veggie recipes your family just loves, please do tell!

Your sister-in-law loved it! (It has bacon in it; what's not to love???)

Sounds good to me, but I bet my hubby would tell me that it's a way to waste bacon. He's not a veggie person either.
