INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Slìce the bacon. Cut the core out of the cabbage and cut ìt ìnto thìn strìps. (We used a mandolìne slìcer to slìce the cabbage.) Mìnce the onìon.
  2. Heat a small fryìng pan over medìum hìgh heat, add the strìps of bacon, and cook untìl the bacon ìs browned and very crìsp. Draìn bacon on paper towels.

Add the slìced cabbage, season wìth paprìka, salt, and pepper, and cook just untìl ìt has softened partly. Then add the crìsp bacon pìeces, stìr to combìne wìth the cabbage, and cook 1-2 mìnutes more to combìne flavors.
