I try to keep it simple, so all I do is dice a slice of bacon, put it in a 3 quart casserole dish and cook it in the microwave until the bacon is crispy, but not too much so. Meanwhile, cut a small head of cabbage in half, and cut one half into quarters, and then cut the quarters into chunks, removing the core. (Reserve the other half of the cabbage for some other use) Put the 'diced up half-cabbage' into the casserole dish, and stir it around, to season it with the bacon. Cook the cabbage in the microwave for about 5 minutes. The cabbage should still be green, but soft. We really like the mixture of cabbage and bacon. (This doesn't keep well, so it's just as well to cook a small batch.)
(Coleslaw is my only other cabbage dish, sorry I don't have more to contribute.)
A fruit is a vegetable with looks and money.
Plus, if you let fruit rot, it turns into wine,
something Brussels sprouts never do.
