Baked Cabbage!

Baked cabbage has become one of our family's favorite summer dishes. If you've tried grilled cabbage or cooked cabbage & don't like it then baked cabbage might be exactly the thing for you.  It tastes totally different with much more of a roasted flavor. There's actually some in our oven right now.

Here's what we do.  Coarsely chop up one large head of cabbage & one onion.  Toss with half stick melted butter & enough season salt to your taste.  Dump it all in a 9x13 cake pan, cover with aluminum foil & bake at 350 for an hour.   You can actually bake it longer if you like, the longer you bake it the more of a "browned" or roasted flavor that it takes on.  You can also chop up any other vegetable that you'd like to include - sometimes I include green pepper, banana pepper, summer squash, etc.

Our family will eat as much of this as I can bake....they love it.  Customers at the farmer's market often ask if I add bacon too.  I don't, simply because the flavor is amazing enough to stand on it's own without it.  But a friend adds polish sausage to hers & that is fabulous too.

Let me know if you try it!
