Simple Cabbage and Mushroom Side

"This is from That's Life. Preparation and cooking time an estimate. The recipe says 8 mushrooms sliced (I think about 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup of sliced mushrooms would do - again a guestimate)?"

    Comfort food at its best! Love cabbage and mushrooms and together they were a match made in heaven. I didn't use the spring onions; but otherwise followed the recipe as written. Will definitely make this dish again!! Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, February, 2012.

    Terrific cabbage dish! Cabbage and mushrooms go so well together. I used turkey bacon, 8 oz of sliced mushrooms and added extra spring onions. Simple ingredients, simple to make, yet makes a super side dish!. Thanx!

    Yummy! My family has loved a very similar dish for years and they loved this one just as much. Did crisp the bacon before adding the mushrooms, also added a thin sliced sweet onion at the same time. How could you go wrong? Bacon, cabbage, mushrooms and sweet onion Mmm mmm mmm. Will be making again and again. Thanks so much for the post.

    This is very good. We've always made cabbage and bacon together, but have never added the mushrooms. It's tasty either way! We did not have scallions, so we left those out, and we used regular bacon, and just used the reserved grease from the bacon instead of butter. Thanks for posting. Made for PRMR.
