Roasted Cabbage with Bacon (from thekitchn.com)
serves 4

1 large head green cabbage, outer leaves removed
Olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 slices thick bacon

Heat the oven to 450°F. Cut the cabbage into quarters and slice the bottom of each quarter at an angle to remove the stem core. Cut each quarter in half again so you have eight wedges. Lay these down on a large roasting pan or baking sheet and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.

Cut each slice of bacon into small strips and lay on top of the cabbage.

Roast for 30 minutes, flipping the cabbage wedges once halfway through. If the edges aren’t browned enough for your taste after 30 minutes, put them back in for five-minute increments until they are.

Serve immediately; the wedges cool down fast.

Note: You can also elevate the cabbage on a rack so that the moisture drips down and lets the cabbage brown more thoroughly. (note from original poster)


gunz note:  THIS IS AMAZING.  I recommend it to anyone who does not HATE cabbage.  Even Jesus liked it.  However, toss a bit of salt on the wedges when you flip them so they are more evenly seasoned.
