Crispy Bacon-Wrapped Cabbage Wedges Are The Perfect Low-Carb Snack

The Kitchen Magpie

If you’re looking for a way to keep your hunger at bay while also sticking to your New Year’s resolutions, this is the snack option for you. Whether you’re serving this up as a precursor to dinner, a post-breakfast pick-me-up or a lunchtime salad topping, it’s a great option for a light bite.

This recipe for crispy bacon-wrapped cabbage comes from The Kitchen Magpie and will change the way you snack for the better. It’s low-carb and only requires three ingredients: thick-cut bacon, parmesan cheese and cabbage. Add garlic powder if you’d like a little extra flavor!

After cutting the cabbage into quarters, all you have to do is cover bacon in shredded parmesan. Then wrap two slices around each cabbage quarter. Use a toothpick to hold the bacon in place if necessary.

Then pop these in the oven until the bacon’s cooked and the edges of the cabbage are nice and browned:

For more of a salad-style preparation, you can follow the recipe from Drizzle & Dip, which recommends cooking the cabbage and bacon pieces with lemon juice, olive oil and soy sauce in tin foil. That way, you can unwrap and have a ready-to-eat meal on your plate come lunchtime.

If you like the idea of combining bacon and veggies, you’re certainly not alone. And luckily, cabbage isn’t the only vegetable that goes well with crispy bacon.

According to KetoDiet, you can also wrap bacon around Brussels sprouts and serve it with a Dijon mustard glaze. Check out how it’s done in a video from their YouTube channel:

Finally, as this recipe from Plain Chicken points out, bacon also makes a delicious accompaniment to asparagus:
