An Optional Addition for this Recipe for Southern Fried Cabbage
If you want to use bacon in this, it’s easier if you cut up 3 slices of bacon in pieces and then cook it. That way, you just add the cabbage and spices immediately after that. If I have no bacon drippings, I will typically just cook the bacon to serve that purpose. It also happens to add in the extra bacon pieces as well.
