Baked Cabbage

In my Wednesday entry I mentioned baking cabbage and got a comment and four emails asking how I make that. It's very simple but tasty and here's how I do it.

Baked Cabbage

1 head cabbage
olive oil
garlic powder
other seasonings to taste

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Wash and quarter the cabbage. Put whatever amount you're going to bake (I used a whole head when there were four or five of us, now I use 1/4 to 1/2 head) in a pan that has a little olive oil and melted butter in it. Roll the cabbage around so that it's well coated in the oil and butter. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and any other seasonings you desire. Place in oven and bake at 300 for about 30 minutes, turning a few times to keep the cabbage well coated in the butter and oil. When the cabbage is soft, remove and eat or cover with foil and cook a little longer if you prefer it very soft.

That's all there is to it! We like it fairly done so I often turn the heat up to 350 or so the last 15 minutes and let the cabbage leaves actually brown a little.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. If you try it, please let me know how it turns out and if you like it.

yes! This is one of my favorite summer dishes. You've made me want it now. The reason I say summer is because it's great (and super easy) to make on the grill. Sooooo good. I think even people who don't necessarily like cabbage that's not a slaw will like this baked cabbage.
