Bacon Wrapped Grilled Cabbage

I am in a love affair with bacon. It is a love-love relationship. We are always looking for a new bacon recipe. But it is hard to top this simple recipe for Bacon Wrapped Grilled Cabbage. One of my favorite recipes ever. Like ever, ever, ever.

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 for Bacon Wrapped Grilled Cabbage.

 

 

Bacon Wrapped Grilled Cabbage is one of my personal favorite (and easy) all time grilling recipes. The flavor is amazing. #grilledcabbage

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?! (You don’t judge me, and I won’t judge you. That’s how it works.)

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 grilled cabbage in your oven. Just turn the broiler on low, watch it closely and flip to cook through.

TIP: Make sure you wrap the bacon tight. As it cooks it will shrink and stick to the cabbage better instead of falling off.

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 grilled 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.

    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?

      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.
