Roasted Cabbage with Bacon
Makes 6 wedges, serving 4-6 people.
2 lb. head of green cabbage
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
4 oz. good quality slab bacon, diced into 1/4-inch cubes (Turkey Bacon)
coarse sea salt
red wine vinegar or lemon wedges
Preheat the oven to 350Â°F.
Trim the stem of the cabbage and remove one layer of the outer leaves. Cut the cabbage in half, and cut each half into three even wedges. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with the oil and place the cabbage wedges 1-inch apart on the sheet. Scatter the bacon over the cabbage.
Roast the cabbage for 20-30 minutes until richly browned on the bottom. Turn the wedges over and roast for 20-30 minutes longer until the bottom is richly browned again. Remove any dried outer leaves. Sprinkle with the coarse salt and serve with vinegar or lemon wedges.
