As I keep reminding you, cabbage is on sale everywhere in March, so I hope you’re trying some recipes with cabbage while it’s such a bargain. And I’m continuing the month of cabbage love by reminding you about this ultra popular recipe for Twice-Cooked Cabbage with Sour Cream and Bacon! Bear with me if you’re not a fan of cabbage please! But for everyone who does love cabbage like I do, this is a must-try cabbage recipe.

And for those who are not the biggest cabbage fans, maybe the use of bacon will reassure you about the flavors here, because when we tested the recipe Kara and I absolutely loved this dish with lightly cooked cabbage and crisp bacon baked with a sour cream and cheese topping. The method used here makes the cabbage sweet and delicious, and it only takes a tiny bit of bacon to make this amazing, but use more bacon if you prefer!

Twice-Cooked Cabbage with Sour Cream and Bacon

Yield Makes 8 side dish servings.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

Low-Carb and Keto Twice-Cooked Cabbage with Sour Cream and Bacon is really a wow when you're looking for an interesting side dish!

Ingredients

  • 4 slices thick-sliced bacon, cut into thin strips (or more)
  • 2 tsp. olive oil or bacon fat
  • 1/4 yellow onion, finely minced
  • 1 large head of cabbage core cut out and cut into thin strips (see notes)
  • 1/2 tsp. sweet paprika (see notes)
  • salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup sour cream (Daisy full-fat sour cream preferred)
  • 3/4 cup grated Mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C.
  2. Slice the bacon.
  3. Cut the core out of the cabbage and cut it into thin strips. (We used a mandoline slicer to slice the cabbage.)
  4. Mince the onion.
  5. Heat a small frying pan over medium high heat, add the strips of bacon, and cook until the bacon is browned and very crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels.
  6. Heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil (or a little bacon fat if you prefer) in the largest frying pan you have, add the minced onion, and cook over medium-high heat until it's barely starting to brown.
  7. Add the sliced cabbage, season with paprika, salt, and pepper, and cook just until it has softened partly.
  8. Then add the crisp bacon pieces, stir to combine with the cabbage, and cook 1-2 minutes more to combine flavors.
  9. Spray a glass baking dish with olive oil or non-stick spray. (The oval glass dish I used was 13" x 10" at the widest parts.)
  10. Put the sauteed cabbage in the casserole dish and spread the sour cream over, then sprinkle with the grated Mozzarella.
  11. Bake about 30 minutes, or until it's bubbling hot and the top is nicely browned. Serve hot.

Notes

The cabbage we used was about 2 pounds. I love Szeged Paprika (affilite link), but any sweet paprika will work for this recipe.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Twice-Cooked Cabbage with Sour Cream and Bacon is suitable for most low-carb eating plans, including Keto. Bacon isn’t recommended for the South Beach Diet, but personally I wouldn’t object to a little well-drained bacon in  a low-carb dish like this, and I’d eat it for any phase of the diet. If you want to follow the letter of the law for South Beach, skip the bacon (or use turkey bacon) and use reduced-fat sour cream and cheese and this will still be a delicious side dish.

  1. This sounds wonderful
    Can’t wait to try it. Mmmmm cabbage is good cooked or raw, I love it.

  2. Hello,
    I enjoy your recipes and all the info that you include to make it perfect.
    I do however have a problem with the advertisement. I wish I could include a picture. The twice cooked cabbage recipe has a beautiful picture of the casserole. Then right below the casserole picture is a picture of a rat eating food scrapes on the floor next to a garbage can. So, imagine a very nice picture of the casserole scroll down just a bit and you see this rat.
    Sharing your beautiful recipes to be ruined by an advertisement of rats.
    Unless this gets changed I will be looking at other sites for recipes.

    • I am definitely sad to hear that happened. I have some control over what ads show up on the site, but not total control and sometimes advertisers sneak ads through the filters. If you could send me a screenshot of that ad I could get my ad network to block it, but unless I see the ad myself there isn’t anything I can do about it. But thanks for letting me know.

      AND, I absolutely do not have any kind of automatic response to comments. I have no idea what you mean by that.

  3. not a fan…. not sure what I did wrong.

    • People like different things, I do know that. You can see from the reviews and comments that a lot of people have liked it, but since you didn’t give me any information about what you didn’t like about it I can’t give any suggestions.

  4. This was absolutely delicious!!! I will most definitely be making this again. Thank you for the recipe.

  5. Can this be frozen to use later?
