For a down home Alabama flavor, try this recipe! It will remind you of Grandma's old time cooking. It's sure to please!!!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 head cabbage
  • 4 -6 tablespoons bacon grease or 4 -6 tablespoons margarine or 4 -6 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can Campbell's chicken soup (with or without noodles)
  • 2 -4 tablespoons cajun seasoning


  1. Note: It may seem like a lot of seasoning for Cajun seasoning but it's not a salty or spicy seasoning. It is a blend of many types of seasoning. It tastes good by itself with any type of meat!
  2. Slice cabbage into desired size pieces.
  3. Fry cabbage in bacon grease until softened.
  4. Add chicken soup and Cajun seasoning.
  5. Cook until of desired consistency.
  6. Note: Really good when served with sticky rice.

Lynda, if I could give you a 10 star I would! This was not only easy to make but the best cabbage I have ever made. DH and I were licking our lips while eating :-) Good southern dish that I will be making alot from now on. Thanks for a delicious recipe. BTW, I followed the recipe exactly as you have it.

Very good. I used Cream of Chicken soup rather than just the regular chicken soup. Since the recipe called for bacon drippings, I figured why not crush up some of the bacon and add it to cabbage. It was fantastic. Thanks!

Delicious. A wonderful way to cook cabbage! I sliced my cabbage thin and used bacon grease, one can of plain Campbell's chicken broth undiluted, and 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning. Served with my pork chops recipe #113037, creamy mashed potatoes, and corn on the cob #147254. Great dinner. Thanks for posting.
