This is a to die for recipe! Not healthy, but worth it once in awhile :) It's my mom's recipe (I'm sure you've heard that one before :)

This was easy and excellent, even if I had to simmer the cabbage a bit longer to get done. I added the bacon at the end of cooking to keep it a bit crisper and the bacon flavor was just heavenly. Thanks for posting!!
