Bakin’ with Bacon and King Teddy


Top-O-the-Mornin’ To Ye!   

Yes I know St. Pat’s isn’t until next week but this is the PRE-SAINT-PAT’s post today.    Maybe it’s just an excuse to wear my scarf and hat???    A note about the recipe today – we didn’t use traditional Irish bacon – which is thick and like having a pork chop – we used regular bacon.   Why?   Because we ALWAYS ALWAYS have bacon on hand and none of our groceries have Irish bacon.   Trust me though – this recipe is not just EASY it’s delicious.

Fried Irish Cabbage With Bacon (not traditional Irish bacon though!)


1 – package bacon (12 oz.)

1/4 cup bacon drippings

1 small head of cabbage, cored and finely chopped

ground black pepper to taste


Cook bacon in deep skillet over medium heat until crisp – remove bacon from skillet and drain on a paper towel.  Reserve 1/4 cup of bacon drippings in the skillet

Cook and stir cabbage in hot bacon drippings over medium heat until cabbage wilts (5-7 minutes)

Crumble bacon over cabbage – stir and simmer until bacon is warmed (2-3 minutes).   Season with black pepper.

Uhoh….that just HAS to be bad luck!

Enjoy this yummy side dish with your St. Patrick’s Dinner – I’m sure you’ll have better luck than the leprechaun had.

May the luck o’ the Irish be with ye!

  1. Good morning Teddy. Well, it is morning for you, but just past midday for me. I love cabbage, but fried cabbage without the bacon just doesn’t cut it unfortunately.


  2. We feel that cabbage needs some help to be delicious. Cooking it in bacon grease and topping it with bacon sounds like just the thing! Yum!!

    Love and licks,


  3. Mom loves fried cabbage, but Dad won’t eat cabbage:( She doesn’t care, she just reheats it for another meal. Hmmm, Dad does love bacon, maybe, just maybe. . .
