This recipe, which was handed down to me from my grandmother, makes a good side dish for any meal. It's a simple way to spruce up a cabbage dish and has always been happily received at potluck suppers.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups shredded cabbage
  • 4 bacon strips
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring 1 in. of water and cabbage to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 3-5 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain.
  2. In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 tablespoons drippings. Stir the flour, salt, paprika and pepper into the drippings until smooth; gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
