Roasted Cabbage with Bacon is the perfect low-carb, keto friendly side dish. Cabbage “steaks” are topped with seasoned salt, pepper and bacon and roasted for just 25 minutes.
The one sure way I can drop a few pounds is by reducing carbs from my diet.
This girl loves potatoes, pasta and bread, so… NO carbs is not something I can sustain for too long, but this recipe is so full of flavor I don’t feel like I’m missing out.
HOW TO MAKE ROASTED CABBAGE WITH BACON
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut cabbage into 1/2″ steaks and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Using a basting brush, add olive oil to the top of each cabbage steak.
Sprinkle each with seasoned salt and pepper. Only 1/4 tsp of seasoned salt and pepper to all six steaks. It does not take much seasoned salt.
Add 1 tbsp crumbled bacon onto the top of each steak. You could add raw bacon to the cabbage, but the roasting will take a bit longer and I like my cabbage to have a little bite. Not too mushy.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Garnish with green onions and serve immediately.
