Grilled Bacon Wrapped Cabbage

I am in a love affair with bacon. It is a love-love relationship. We are always looking for a new bacon recipe.

There are very few things in this world that I won’t eat as long as bacon is involved. And right now I am having a hard time thinking of what those things are.

This is your new favorite Bacon Recipe: Bacon Wrapped Grilled Cabbage.

Bryan and I have cooked cabbage like this for years. We cannot remember who first suggested we do this, but wherever you are mysterious recipe giver, thank you.

Plus, we were looking for the perfect recipe to break in our new grill! Loving the infrared! There were zero flare ups from the bacon. We have a Charbroil brand grill with Infrared Technology.

Cut cabbage in half. Leave the stalk in. Slice into equal sized wedges. We normally get 10 wedges out of a medium head of cabbage.

 

This cabbage and bacon recipe is a perfect side dish for a steak dinner, chicken, or fish. Or you can eat it alone.

I mean, this is a perfectly acceptable snack, right?!

Wrap each cabbage wedge in 1 to 2 slices of thick cut bacon. (Thin sliced bacon tears easily and cooks too fast.)

 

Although it is best cooked outdoors on a grill, you can also cook this in your oven. Just turn the broiler on low, watch it closely and flip to cook through.

Cooking times will vary depending on the size and type of your grill.

If you use a charcoal grill, try to get your coals as even as possible so you don’t have hot spots.

Also watch for flare ups from the bacon drippings.

We start with a hot grill, around 400 degrees.

Once the cabbage is on the grill, reduce the heat to around 300 and close the lid.

 

 

 

 

 

Check the cabbage every few minutes, turning frequently to prevent burning.

The key is to get that perfectly brown…the yummy flavor seeps into the fresh crunchy cabbage.

Turn frequently and don’t let your grill get too hot.

 

Ok, I’m done writing. Time to eat before the kids eat it all.

 

 

You could also do a mini-version of this, using fresh brussel sprouts wrapped in bacon.  (Future post idea!!!)

Buy This:

  • 1 medium head of cabbage
  • 15 - 20 slices of thick cut bacon
  • Salt & Pepper

Cook That:

Slice cabbage in half. Leaving core in, slice each half into evenly sized wedges. The cabbage will make approximately 10 wedges.

Wrap each cabbage wedge tightly with 1 to 2 pieces of bacon, securing with toothpicks.

Salt and pepper the wedges on both sides.

Preheat grill to 400 degrees (medium-high). Once heated, place bacon-wrapped cabbages on the grill, close the lid, and reduce heat to 250 degrees (low).

Check cabbage every few minutes, turning frequently to prevent burning.

Due to variances in grill size and type, the cooking time will vary greatly. The key to cooking this is not to get your grill to hot, turn frequently, and cook until the bacon is a nicely done and brown.

Remove from grill and serve immediately.

    • Reply Teri January 28, 2017 at 4:11 pm Yes I ping pong between low carb and super carb. Lol. This is actually fantastic and so simple. Hope you like it.
  • Reply Kari Williams March 17, 2017 at 9:08 am I can't wait to try this! Do you think this would work on a table top grill as well, that doesn't have a cover?
    • Reply Teri March 17, 2017 at 9:42 am I think it would work great. I've made this in the oven, too under the broiler. As long as you can get a great brown on the bacon, you should be good to go.
