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!
