Another goodie from my old Somersize mailing list! A good side dish with protein/fat meals, or a good lunch by itself.

I did not use the thick sliced bacon but decided to use some diced Canadian bacon. Used olive oil to cook the cabbage and added a red pepper for color instead of the green. Sprinkled with seasoned salt. DH said it was missing something and suggested a dash of balsamic vinegar and he was right. It was very good. Thanks for the opportunity to be creative.

This was very tasty and easy to prepare. I made it once a couple of weeks ago and am making it again tonight. Last time it was so good I ate the leftovers for breakfast!
