    was very excited to try this. is one tablespoon a typo on the season salt? i cut it down a bit from that and it was still way too salty for us. going to try again with much less salt.

    Could you do this in a slow cooker? Maybe cook the bacon and onion first, then combine cabbage,etc. and maybe a tad of chicken broth? I need slow cooker recipes for Wednesday nights. Thanks

      I think it would have a different texture. The frying allows the onion and cabbage to caramelize. The crock would more or less steam it making the dish moist. I’m sure it would taste okay, it would just be different.

    We loved it. I didn’t add any spices as I’m not suppose to have a lot of salt and with the bacon (a big no no but who cares) it was perfect. My husband did add a bit of pepper.

    How much is in a serving?

      About 2/3 of a cup. The cabbage reduces quite a bit while cooking.

    My wife got me a stuffed burger press for father’s day. this is definitely going inside a burger. on it’s own it’s awesome, but putting it inside a grilled hamburger is going to be magical
