Say hello to Newlyweds, an adorable blog featuring recipes, gardening and personal bites about her family especially her twin boys. Who, by the way, are adorable. Also, she’s a Texas girl! (grin). I must have bookmarked all of her recipes and I can’t wait to make some of them starting tonight. Oh and another thing, she is a heck of a blogger. She photographs the entire cooking process she is a better women than me!
Baked Cabbage was a wonderful way to use up the leftover head of cabbage; I cannot get over how amazing this dish is/was. The smell of it while cooking, the crispy bits of bacon, the creamy dreamy goodness of the sauce, I’ll call it a sauce. We ate the entire baking dish full. Not to worry it was only a small version of the recipe. Baby Cakes loved it (he gives it a bada** rating), I loved it. What’s not to love?
recipe from Newlyweds
1 small head of cabbage, sliced
1/2 onion sliced
3 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon seasoning blend, your choice
2 cups heavy cream
4 dashes of hot pepper sauce
6-8 slices raw bacon, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Layer the cabbage into a buttered baking dish and top with onion slices.
Put the 3 tablespoons of cornstarch into a mixing bowl and measure in 4 tablespoons of heavy cream, using your finger or a spoon stir the mixture until the cornstarch is dissolved completely. Add the remaining cream slowly while whisking the cornstarch mixture. Whisk in the salt, pepper, hot sauce and seasoning blend. Pour over the cabbage and onions.
Top evenly with the raw chopped bacon.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 90 minutes. Uncovering the baking dish with 10 minutes left.
