Bacon Fried Cabbage is one of our favorite dishes to make year-round. It is easy to make with simple ingredients, resulting in such a flavorful and delicious side dish. All you need is four ingredients – cabbage, onion, garlic, and bacon, along with a few seasonings.

I guess the secret ingredients here are bacon and garlic, as it makes this recipe so amazingly delicious! Once you try it, you will be making it over and over again, it is that good!

If you have never fried or sauteed cabbage before, you need to try this dish. It is also budget-friendly and can be made with various toppings. For, example, you could replace the bacon with sausage, or for a vegetarian version, simply use potatoes instead. It tastes delicious either way.
