    This was very good, especially for a recipe which is so simple and has so few ingredients. Bacon makes everything delicious! I steamed the cabbage instead of boiling it, but that was the only change I made. Thanks for posting this, I will definitely be making it again soon. Made for My Three Chefs Fall 2008
