Cabbage wedges are cooked then served with a simple cheese sauce. Crumbled bacon serves as a garnish and adds flavor to the dish.
Reserve some of the bacon drippings to use for the Cheddar cheese sauce.
- 4 ounces bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1 medium head green cabbage
- salt and pepper
- 4 tablespoons butter, or part bacon drippings
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cups milk
- 4 ounces shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (1 cup)
- salt and pepper to taste
Cut cabbage into wedges and cook in a small amount of salted water until tender, or for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt the butter (and bacon drippings, if using) in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour and blend well. Gradually pour in milk, stirring constantly. Continue to cook, stirring, until sauce is thickened and smooth; add salt and pepper to taste. Add cheese to the sauce mixture; heat until melted.
Arrange the drained cabbage wedges on a serving platter. Spoon cheese sauce over the wedges and sprinkle with bacon
