Grilled cabbage

I was not a little surpised, or a teensy bit surprised, or even slightly surprised that Main Man loved this as much as I did. I was greatly, vastly, EXTENSIVELY suprised that he liked this as much as I did! Cabbage? No butter? Healthy? Get real. And it did get Mrs. Nobiling served us these little foil babies for a side to smoked ham and it was heavenly. Like they were made to go together. Like they were twins separated at birth, but not identical twins, because they aren't the same but they compliment each other so well they are the perfect amount of different. Have I lost you yet? Get a little smoked ham on your fork, now fork some cabbage up with it, and take a bite. SEE WHAT I MEAN?!?! Now we're speaking the same language. We had a great time catching up with the Nobilings and their little lover boy Keltyn...AND she served us one of the best meals we've had in a while. I mean, could it have been a better night? Not in my book...even if I didn't have my good camera, my purse camera battery was dead, and my cell camera was all I had to get a snapshot of this all worked out in the end! :)   
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp real bacon bits
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper (more or less to taste)
  • 1 Medium Head of Cabbage

  • Mix the olive oil, bacon bits, lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to make the marinade.  Prepare the cabbage. Rinse it under water and remove any yucky loose leaves.
    Cut the head in half on the core..then cut the halves in half again…to make quarters. Lay each wedge on a sheet of aluminum foil large enough to wrap it up in. Spoon about 2 tbsp of the marinade on top making sure to get it in all the nooks and crannies. Wrap each wedge and bake for 20-30 minutes. I say 20-30 becuase they will continue to cook once you pull them out and I like mine still crunchy. Do what you please, though. Some in the comments section of this original recipe have cooked them up to an hour for softer cabbage.
