    Malriah's Note:

    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.

      Well, DH hates cooked cabbage, or should I say DID! We both went wild over this! We served it with Amy V's pork chops and noodles (there went the cholestrol count..)and were in heaven. The flavor the bacon adds to this dish is unbelievable! (As Emeril says pork fat rules!) I did add some creole spice to it as it cooked to kick it up a notch. This will be an often served side dish at our house! Thanks Kari for getting DH to eat cabbage!!!!

      Too bland. I had to dress it up with 2 tbsp. of Cavenders Greek Seasoning, add another stick of butter, and the bacon seemed out of place. Would have been great with out the meat, better seasoning like I added. After I fixed it, it was the favorites dish at the pot luck New Years Dinner!~ Also, let it all steam until all wilted with a big tight lid, drain and put into casserole dish and serve.
