  1. Sounds great, you can always cut back on the bacon if you want less fat, less guilt. Life’s full of compromises and they’re not all bad! Go with it. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Was thinking turkey or chicken bacon might be a good substitute and not quite as much fat. I love cabbage so this is a great veggie dish.
