It is a New Orleans tradition to eat black-eyed peas and cabbage on New Years day. Its supposed to bring you luck in the year to come. I personally didn't care for cooked cabbage until I came up with this recipe.
- In a large pot cook bacon, remove and drain, reserving the fat.
- Add onion to bacon fat and cook for about 3 minutes.
- Add cabbage and drained bacon and saute for 5-10 minutes.
- Salt and pepper to taste.
