    • 2 eggs
    • 3/4 cup milk
    • 1 cup soft breadcrumbs

      Sweat the onions in the oil in a large pan for a few minutes, then add the bacon, cook until more fat runs.
    2. 2
      Mix in the cabbage and garlic, season with pepper and perhaps a little salt, (to taste),depending on the saltiness of the bacon.

      Cook for a few minutes until it starts to colour.
    4. 4
      Transfer to a shallow baking dish.
    5. 5

      Note: to make a complete light meal, increase the amount of bacon, mix the bread crumbs with enough grated cheese to make a generous layer on top, and cook as above.

      Oh, Dorothy! I imagined that there must be a recipe for a dish like this out there somewhere... this is even better than I had thought it might be. Great recipe!

      Cut the recipe in half for the two of us. Served as a side dish with beer steamed brats and potato wedges. Followed the recipe, it was not dry and smelled wonderful while cooking, but for some reason had a very 'eggy' taste. Any idea what might have caused that?

      This is absolutely divine! Made using more bacon than recipe called for. Used homemade breadcrumbs and I did put cheese on top of crumbs. What a wonderful and simple country meal! Very satisfying! Even my 8y/o dd ate it and liked it. The other two would not try it but since she is the picky one I was thrilled. Dh liked it but was on the fence. I think he will like leftovers better in his lunch today.Will make again!
