4-6 slices bacon (can use turkey bacon to make it a little “healthier”)
1/2 medium to large cabbage, sliced in thick slices
1 medium to large onion, thinly sliced (yellow or white)
1/4 cup water
Salt and pepper to taste
Fry bacon and pour off most of bacon grease, leaving only enough to cost the bottom of the skillet well (I use a black skillet). Layer cabbage and onion in skillet. Pour water on top. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cook (or steam) cabbage and onions only long enough to crisp-tender (do not over cook).
When done, crumble bacon on top. Serve immediately.
Notes: This is not good if cabbage is mushy. You may want to toss cabbage and onion to coat with seasonings. More bacon can be used, if desired.
