I didn't see where anyone had reviewed this one. It's from the Quick and Easy Menus. To me, bacon and apples go hand in hand. You got the tart from the apple cider vinegar, and the sweet of the sugar. For me, it's a nine.

Subs I didn't have thick cut bacon, so used regular. I had bought 1/2 head of Savoy cabbage ( for $0.40 ), so used that. Neither was a problem.

Strange though. As much as I loved it, one person wouldn't even try a hot slaw. (But that didn't really surprise me). The other had one spoonful and had no comments. I brought a little container to have with lunch today, and it was as good cold as it was hot. I'll definitely make this again. It may not be the most appropriate dish to serve in summer, but I think in the dead of winter it will be great, especially with something like grilled porkchops (pork and poek, you can't go wrong!).
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

I'll have to look...I think this is in another publication. (I don't have the one you mention.) If not, I may have to hit you up for this one...sound really good! Odd as it may sound to some of you, we put apple cider vinegar on steamed cabbage all the time. I'm assuming this is similar to what you are describing here.
Keep your mind wide open.

That is a good recipe, Lorraine. I remember making that a while back and we both liked it hot and cold. And I didn't have thick cut bacon either, just plain old regular, but it worked just fine. Thanks for bringing it up, it will remind me to make it again!

You know Daphne, I thought that was a New England thing - the vinegar on cabbage. I can't serve a boiled dinner or fried cabbage without putting vinegar on the table for Bruce.

But add bacon to it and now we are talking to me!!!

Story of my life, Lorraine. I did a similar slaw 20 years ago for a dinner, and people were a little leary of a dish that's usually served cold, served hot. We have the same reaction with customers when something like this is on the menu.

However, this won't stop me. I want to try this particular dish and I will, sooner or later the oppportunity will present and I'll go for it.

Thanks for the review.

The front cover has the Bacon Wrapped Cider Pork Steaks (earmarked for net week) and the Marmalade Sweet Potatoes. I don't remember buying it, but that's not unusual. Thanks for posting the recipes, Jean.

PJ, Gil sometimes does a Hot Asian Slaw as a side, and for some reason, they like it down there.

Cabbage and vinegar is a natural for me, so add bacon and apples and you can't go wrong.
