I know corn beef and cabbage get all the fame but I tell you cabbage and bacon is where its at. The salty bacon and the tender cabbage are a great combination, and the added butter doesn't hurt.
6 slices bacon, diced
1 medium head cabbage, cored and shredded
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
2 cups water
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your oven's broiler.
Place cabbage into a large pot. Add water and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat until tender, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, cook bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain and set aside. Drain cabbage, and drizzle with melted butter. Sprinkle with bacon and nutmeg. Transfer to a baking dish.
Place under your oven's broiler until the top layer is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Serve with salt, pepper and red wine vinegar (I do not prefer this but some do!) as desired.
