Baked Cabbage


Cooper is the kind of kid that wont eat a ton of veggies, but he’s weirdly not picky about a lot of other things. My husband and I sat here and talked about what we thought he’d not try, since we had two veggies that were newbie recipes. I said I bet he wont try the sweet potatoes I made, but hubby swore he’d stick his nose up to the cabbage. Wasn’t he surprised when Cooper took a bite and said yum this is good! He tried the sweet potatoes and wasn’t a huge fan. I was a little shocked, but he’s in this kick where he thinks sweet potatoes have to have marshmallows on them. That crazy kid. I’m glad I found another item that I can get him to eat. It makes me feel a lot better. I realized how tired the guys are of the same ol’ stuff. I’m still on the hunt for recipes!

1 head of green cabbage, cut into wedges, core removed

Bacon cut into half pieces

salt and pepper

olive oil

1/4 cup butter melted

Put the cabbage in a glass baking sheet. I used a dutch oven and it worked perfectly. Top with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. Pour butter over the cabbage. Bake with lid on, or with aluminum foil over it for 30 minutes. Baste with butter. Cook another 15-20 minutes. It should be almost tender at this point. Bake for another 10-15 minutes to slightly brown the top. I did about 10 to prevent a ton of browning. Serve.

  1. Coop reminds me of myself as a kid. I was just as weird with my taste buds! I did love sweet potatoes though but only because of the way my mom made them. She baked them and then put butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and a tiny bit of brown sugar. Come to think of it, she made a bunch of different squash the same way. Maybe give this a try? xo
