I have a confession. This summer loving home cook has no grill. :( We HAD a grill at our old house but it became a casualty of the move and now a new one just isn’t in our budget. Unfortunately the deck where that grill would love to sit is also out of the question but I digress.
As the name suggests I’d much rather throw these on the grill however, they work perfectly fine in the oven. So why not?
If you’ve never had grilled cabbage you are in for surprise. It’s hardy, super light in calories and very filling. I flavor mine with a bit of lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, pepper and bacon bits but you could really use anything. Even the toddler was intrigued by this one and asked for a bite. He gave it 2 thumbs up. The husband didn’t eve bother trying it. Just not his thing.
- 1 tsp olive oil (5g)
- 2 tbsp real bacon bits (14g)
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper (more or less to taste)
- 1 Medium Head of Cabbage
Preheat the oven (or the grill, you lucky son of a b ;) to 425 degrees.
Mix the olive oil, bacon bits, lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to make the marinade.
Prepare the cabbage. Rinse it under water and remove any yucky loose leaves.
Cut the head in half on the core..
Then cut the halves in half again…
…to make quarters.
Lay each wedge on a sheet of aluminum foil large enough to wrap it up in. Spoon about 2 tbsp of the marinade on top making sure to get it in all the nooks and crannies.
Wrap each wedge and bake for 20-30 minutes.
I say 20-30 becuase they will continue to cook once you pull them out and I like mine still crunchy. So I let them sit for a little while pull them out around the 20 minute mark. However, some in the comments have cooked them up to an hour for softer cabbage.
The wedges reheat wonderfull in the oven or the microwave!
