      Just one more fantastic recipe from Kittencal! I didn't have bacon so used some ham chips and butter instead. Had to leave out the pepper flakes cuz DH isn't crazy about them. Used water and brown sugar, but not as much sugar as it called for. Oh My Goodness - this is by far, the best cabbage I have ever cooked! Have another head of cabbage, going to try Kittencal's sausage n cabbage recipe later this week. Yum Carol - you out do yourself every time! Thanks!

      Update 10/7/12 - cool fall day perfect for this recipe again! Used ham chips again but did have some bacon grease. Added some slice up polish sausage while onions were cooking, then removed them and added back just as cabbage was finishing up. OMGoodness - hubby can't get enough! Thanks Carol!!!

      Really good, and other than the chopping, really quick and easy. I did leave out the pepper flakes, as I was making this for the in laws and they don't do spicy anything. My husband tried it, but still doesn't care for cabbage. Used white sugar, and like another reviewer, might cut it in half, or leave out entirely next time I make this. Used a thick cut apple wood smoked bacon. Thanks for another great recipe!

      What a great recipe. Thanks to Kittencal, everyone thinks I can cook. I just didn't put in the garlic, as we don't like that. I fixed it for our New years day dinner, with Kittencal's crock pot ham, and also her roasted potatoes and carrots. Soooo good. Thanks Kitten
