      This was great! I cooked the bacon crisp, then browned the onion, layered it all in the crockpot. My german husband said it was the best red cabbage he has ever had! I know it will taste even better today after it blends. Thanks for sharing.

      I lost my previous recipe for red cabbage so I tried this one, and this is the one I will always use from now on, especially with saurbrauten and potato pancakes. Delicious!

      Patti? This was delicious. I made it to your exact directions. Very easy and smelled heavenly when cooking. But honestly, I normally like caraway seeds in my cabbage and the bay leaves sounded a little, "iffy", but I bit the bullet and made it with the bay leaves. I was SO glad I did. They added a very nice flavour. I made this yesterday, but like you said, "It's better the next day", so I waited until tonight to serve it. I put it in a baking dish, browned some bratwurst and put them on top. Then I covered it with foil and baked it in the oven, until the brats were cooked through. This was awesome! I also made KeyWee's "Potato Dumplings" Potato Dumplings (Sinkers) and some nice crusty bread to go with it. Made a very good German meal. Thanks Patti, for a delicious dish. One I'll definatly make again. LeeAnn
