  • Half a head of green cabbage

  • 1

    small onion, sliced

  • ¼

    cup precooked real crumbled bacon (like the kind by Oscar Mayer)

  • 2

    tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)

  • 1

    tsp. minced garlic

  • Dash salt, or more to taste

  • Dash black pepper, or more to taste

  • Dash paprika, or more to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Carefully remove the tough core from the cabbage using a sharp knife. Slice cabbage half into 4 thin wedges. Halve each wedge, leaving you with 8 "chunks." Lay a large piece of heavy-duty foil on a baking sheet. Lay cabbage in the center, and top with onion. Add butter in four evenly spaced dollops over the onion. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and paprika. Top with bacon and garlic. Place another large piece of foil over the veggies. Fold together and seal all four edges of the two foil pieces, forming a well-sealed packet. Place baking sheet in the oven and cook for 30 - 35 minutes, until veggies are soft. Let cool slightly. Using oven mitts, carefully flip packet over, allowing butter mixture to coat the veggies, and then return to right-side-up. Cut packet to release steam before opening it entirely. (Careful -- steam will be hot.) If you like, season to taste with additional salt, pepper, and paprika.
