  • 1 large head green cabbage cored and sliced (About ⅓-1/2 inch wide pieces)
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • ¼ cup olive oil adjust amount to taste
  • 6 slices bacon cooked and crumbled, reserve 2 tablespoon drippings

  • ½ teaspoon fennel seed optional
  • ½-1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 14 oz smoked kielbasa sausage ¼ inch slices

  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a large rimmed sheet pan or two pans with cooking spray.
  • Spread cabbage and onion on pan. Drizzle with oil, bacon drippings, salt, pepper, fennel seed and crushed red pepper flakes, tossing to coat. (You can use more or less oil to your taste and/or spray with cooking spray)
