Southern Fried Cabbage

Southern Fried Cabbage – I Remember Grandma’s

Oh what memories this Southern Fried Cabbage dish brings back! Visits to my grandmothers was always a pleasure just for the food. This was a favorite!

I was raised in the south and Grandma always had good southern food!

I didn’t realize it until I was an adult that she was also a very economical cook. This fried cabbage dish was always a part of the same meal.

I knew if I smelled cabbage cooking that we would also have navy beans, fried potatoes, and cornbread.

Except for the bacon in the navy beans, no meat. Inexpensive food but delicious and filling.
