Baked Cabbage- The bacon adds flavor while the browned butter adds it’s own unique taste. It’s absolutely delicious! This is a recipe you are going to LOVE.
How the idea for this baked cabbage started…
Last summer I had a party and one of my friends made a whole baked cabbage head. She cored the cabbage and took a slice off of the bottom of it to make it sit upright.
She filled the hole in the cabbage with butter, seasoned it with salt and pepper, wrapped it in foil and baked it. Because it was a whole head of cabbage and not cut into wedges it took well over two hours (more like 3) to bake through.
I loved the baked cabbage and wanted to make it again. It was 92 degrees here, just the thought of the oven being on for 3 hours without the air conditioning in yet was enough to send me into a hot flash.
I decided to modify…
How I modified it…
After looking at many Baked Cabbage recipes I decided to use one from The Kitchn that I slightly modified. I set the oven to 450 degrees and then was ready to begin!
The cabbage was cut into wedges, put into a roasting pan, salt and peppered and then drizzled with a little olive oil. I laid cut up bacon pieces over the cabbage, then I started thinking…
The reason I loved the whole baked cabbage head recipe from last summer was because of the butter. I loved the soft, baked cabbage and butter mixed together.
I melted a 1/4 cup of butter and let it brown. Browned butter has a very unique flavour that is delicious! You have to be careful when cooking it though, it can quickly go from browned to burnt. I drizzled the browned butter over the cabbage.
I placed foil over the baking pan for the first 30 minutes of cooking and took the foil off for the last 30 minutes or so until the cabbage was getting golden brown and tender.
What kitchen items do I need for this recipe?
Here is the great news- you only need two kitchen items for the baked cabbage!
Having a roasting pan is a great investment, not only for this recipe. I never knew all the ways a roasting pan could be used until I stumbled upon this list of sixty recipes to use with a roasting pan!
The other item you need is a small saucepan. Yes, that’s it! If you have these two things in your kitche, you are all set and ready to go.

- 4 slices uncooked bacon cut into pieces
- Salt and pepper
- drizzle of olive oil
- 1/4 cup butter melted and browned

Absolutely delicious! Will definitely be making again. thanks for the recipe
I would love to be able to bake like that
This is absolutely Delicious…flavor is unreal but cooking time for me wasn’t right. Got burned bottoms (which I took out and ate…yum). So I covered and reduced temperature because it was browned enough…to 300 and it’s still baking after hour and 15….great change to stuffed cabbage and Cole slaw…thank you Bunnie! Your recipes are fantastic.
I had never made baked cabbage before and this was wonderful! The browned butter and bacon really gave this cabbage a lot of flavor!! I really like your recipes and have made several over the years! Thank you!
This cabbage side dish is one of the very best we’ve had. Thank you for your innovative 💡 idea! We 😊 love it 💜
I have baked cabbage and it is true it is the butter and bacon that gives it such a great flavor! Usually I don’t cover and the bacon gets crisp. This last time I covered and got limp bacon. Now I will cook uncovered for sure!!! Also added onions, carrots, turnips or potatoes to it. Reallybgood.
Love it- glad you enjoyed the baked cabbage!
