Cabbage With Bacon And Eggs

This is another dish the kids will enjoy. As with all my recipes, its an easy one to make. Unusual combinations of flavours with the bacon and eggs thrown in, but funnily it works so well. Who doesn't love bacon and eggs.. Throw in a veggie, and no one will be able to resist.. A sneaky way to get the kids to eat those veggies too.

Ingredients:
1 small cabbage or half a big one
bacon diced small (add as much as you would like.. I usually add around 2 or 3 strips of bacon)
3 eggs
1 stock cube (you could use a chicken or vegetable stock cube), or replace completely with salt
dash of pepper powder

Method:
Shred or finely chop the cabbage. Break the eggs in a bowl add a pinch of salt and pepper and a dash of milk. Adding milk to eggs keeps them soft and tender. In the same casserole that you would be cooking the cabbage in, heat some oil. Pour the egg mixture and scramble the eggs. Remove them from the casserole and reserve in a plate or bowl. By using the same casserole, it will save you having to wash another pan.

Add in a little more oil and then fry the bacon in the same casserole. When nice and golden, add in the cabbage and the cube. Cover and cook on slow, checking and stiring once in a while to make sure it doesnt stick to the bottom. It should be ready in 10 mins. Season with a dash of pepper powder, check if it needs more salt and then add in the previously scrambled eggs. Give it a good mix and your dish is ready.
