This was great! I don't think it would have been as tasty without the bacon grease. I only used one head of cabbage because I didn't have two. Everyone loved this!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry bacon in deep skillet until you have about 1/4 to 1/3 cup grease.
  2. Set bacon aside for BLT's or nibbling.
  3. (I add it to the recipe just before serving.) Add onion, and saute over medium heat until almost translucent.
  4. Add cabbage, about 1/3 at a time, covering pan and lowering heat a bit to prevent scorching.
  5. Continue until all cabbage is in pan, and cook until limp and tender.
  6. Add 1/2 to 1 full tablespoon fresh pepper-- salt at the very end-- be reserved with salt-- the cabbage picks up the sodium in the bacon and the cooked noodles.
  7. Add cabbage mixture to cooked noodles, tossing well to mix.
  8. Serves about 450 people as a side dish, 6-8 as more of a main course.
