The “Easy Bacon” Oven

In my pantry today:

  • 3 c cabbage, chunked
  • 4 new potatoes, halved
  • 6 slices of bacon, diced
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 c sweet yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • dash asafoetida

Untitled-1Sorry vegetarians, but thank you bacon! The longest part of the prep process here comes from letting your bacon chunks cook slowly enough to oil the onions in their stead. Dash them with turmeric and asafoetida for good anti -inflammatory and -flatulent measure. 

Untitled-1zMix your potato halves with olive oil and half the salt so they’re coated enough before relying on the bacon — I had lean slices in my skillet, and that’s not entirely fair to anything that might stick horribly to the pan.

Untitled-1dPut the potato and cabbage in a deep baking pan and spoon the bacon, onions and garlic mix over everything evenly. Bake uncovered in a 375° oven for 45m, then remove from the oven to let cool on counter for 5m. We ate this gladly as a 5 spoon meal, but it would only shine too as a side dish.
