Delicious Cabbage Recipes

Fried Irish Cabbage With Bacon
This recipe is as simple as it sounds. I found this one at All you need is one 12 ounce package of bacon, one small head of cabbage, and some ground black pepper. Save some of the bacon drippings after the bacon is cooked to saute the cabbage in. This recipe makes six servings.

Creamy Cabbage With Potatoes
Serious Eats has an inexpensive recipe that was inspired by Colcannon, an Irish cabbage and potato dish. The main ingredients include an onion, a pound of cabbage, 2 pounds of potatoes and a head of lettuce. You can substitute the potatoes with mashed potatoes if you want to use up leftovers. Add in a few more “pantry items”, and you have a tasty meal that serves 4 and costs less than $7.00.

Cabbage and Noodles
This recipe came from Mr. Food. It is a side dish that will serve six people. This super simple recipe includes bowtie noodles, chopped onion, and plenty of shredded cabbage. First, make the noodles (according to the directions on the package). Next, saute the onions and cabbage in a skillet until the cabbage is soft and light brown. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and the noodles.

Italian Peasant Soup with Cabbage, Beans, & Cheese
Here is a healthy, hearty, cabbage recipe from Eating Well. It serves 8 people, and gives them each 1 cup of soup. The main ingredients you need for this recipe include 4 cups of Savoy cabbage, a can of reduced sodium chicken broth, some fontina cheese (or Parmesan cheese) a medium onion, beans, and some thick slices of day old whole wheat country bread. This recipe will take about 40 minutes. What could be better than hot soup on a cold day?

Some people have had a less than appetizing first taste of cabbage when they were children. If that is you, then it is time to give cabbage another try! Cabbage is good for you, it pairs nicely with so many other foods, and it is a very inexpensive ingredient to build a meal around. Even the picky eaters in your family will be tempted to try Fried Irish Cabbage with Bacon!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
