Fried cabbage and potatoes may be an Irish-inspired dish, but don't wait until St. Patrick's Day to make this simple and filling comfort food. Crunchy, warm and delightful, you can serve this as a side dish for a weeknight meal or put an egg on it and call the main dish anything from brunch to breakfast for dinner.
While you cook six strips of bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, shred a small head of cabbage (we like green cabbage here) and peel and chop three russet potatoes. When the bacon is crispy, take it out of the pan and leave the bacon drippings. Add the potatoes, cabbage, four cloves garlic, salt, and black pepper to the pan. Cover the skillet and cook the veggies until the potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally, which should take you about 10 minutes of cook time.
You can also substitute red potatoes for fried potatoes. This easy dinner is great with a side of cornbread
Crumble the bacon over the fried cabbage and potatoes, then serve and enjoy!
