Cabbage Packets

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Tasses

Given to me by a friend who NEVER cooks anything, it doesn't get much easier than this. These are great on the grill, but can be done in the oven too. ***I have altered cooking times as I see that they were too long and made sure to clarify that the bacon has to be cut into pieces and separated...

I love cabbage so thought this would be great.But the cabbage was mush and the bacon was not cooked. I cooked it in the oven, and made no change.
