Roasted Cabbage with Bacon is the perfect low-carb, keto friendly side dish. Cabbage “steaks” are topped with seasoned salt, pepper and bacon and roasted for just 25 minutes.

The one sure way I can drop a few pounds is by reducing carbs from my diet.

This girl loves potatoes, pasta and bread, so… NO carbs is not something I can sustain for too long, but this recipe is so full of flavor I don’t feel like I’m missing out.


  • Add a slice of white onion over the cabbage before the bacon.
  • Drizzle with a honey balsamic vinaigrette before roasting and skip the bacon.
  • Replace the bacon with roasted pecans.
  • Sprinkle Parmesan cheese at the end.


Serve this easy, delicious, low-carb side dish with grilled steaks, baked chicken breast or even your favorite meatloaf dinner.


Yes, cabbage is an outstanding food to add to your diet. It’s full antioxidants, Vitamin K and C and and it’s an excellent source of daily fiber.

Add cabbage to your favorite vegetable soup, saute it with olive oil, salt, pepper and a dash of apple cider vinegar or make my traditional Sweet Creamy Slaw. There are many, many ways to incorporate this healthy vegetable into your weekly meal plan.
