  • Meanwhile, cook and stir bacon in large skillet on medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Add onions to reserved drippings; cook and stir 2 min. or until crisp-tender. Add water; stir to release browned bits from bottom of skillet. Add cabbage; mix well. Cover; cook 7 min. or until cabbage is tender and water is cooked off, stirring occasionally.
  • Drain potatoes; return to pan. Add butter. Mash potatoes until creamy, gradually adding milk. Add cabbage mixture and bacon; mix well.

How to Test Potatoes for Doneness

To test for potato doneness, insert a fork deep into the center of the potato. There should be no resistance if the potato is done.

Storing Cabbage

Store whole cabbage in the refrigerator in a perforated plastic bag, or loosely wrapped in a plastic bag for up to 2 weeks. Tightly wrap cut cabbage in plastic wrap, refrigerate and use within a few days. Wash cabbage just before using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just made this amazing dish and boy howdy, it is delicious. I just made this amazing dish and boy howdy, it is delicious. Did slight changes, but not many. The main thing I did was add a garlic clove while cooking the onions and I added salt and pepper while mixing the potatoes. Other than that I followed the recipe. I will definitely make this again.

I thought it was okay but didn't care for the bacon. My husband liked it quite a bit and had two big servings. I would think about adding some cheese next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband was skeptical, so I made regular potatoes and this to see which my family preferred. My husband was skeptical, so I made regular potatoes and this to see which my family preferred. This recipe was gone and asked for every night that week. Will definitely make again, only I will add more bacon like the others suggested. But all in all, it was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is yum. This is yum. We are bacon fans so we did 6-7 slices crumbled. Had to cook cabbage longer than 7 min, probably because ours wasn't really shredded but chopped. The result was delicious hot or cold (leftovers). Definitely a repeater.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than ordinary mashed potatoes. Much better than ordinary mashed potatoes. I would also add more bacon, and perhaps add chicken bouillon to the cooking water because I felt like taste was just slightly bland. I still felt this was a great and unusual recipe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolutely loved this recipe! Absolutely loved this recipe! Reminds me of an hungarian dish my ex's mother used to make. Next time I make this I plan on adding Polska Kielbasa (or a sausage that is similar) to it and it will make it a casserole like dish.

I liked the combination much better than cabbage alone. The bacon was a really good flavor, too. we had it with corned beef on St. Patrick's Day.
