Hello ladies, Im new so Im going to start off on hopefully a good note, Im from Ireland, I had to choose a state in the US as it didnt say Ireland in the drop down menu so forgive me if some of  the ingredients are not familiar to you here goes.

Bacon & Cabbage Irish Style, with creamed swede/turnip - Serves 4

500g- 1 kg (whichever suits) Back Loin of Bacon, can be smoked or unsmoked.
Head of Savoy Cabbage or SweetHeart Cabbage
8 Large Potatoes for Mashing.
50 grams Real Butter
75mls of Fresh Cream/ Milk

Boil your bacon in a large pot of water for about an hour to an hour and a half depending on size. 

Shred your cabbage thinly, throwing out the hard inner core.

In the last 25 mins of boiling your bacon, add your cabbage.

Peel and cut a large swede/ turnip and chop into cubes, bring to the boil and simmer in a pan, once softened, drain and add 25 mls of the cream, 20grams of the butter and  add salt and pepper to taste, then mash to a fine pulp.

Boil your potatoes until soft, drain and also add the rest of the cream and butter. 

Once your bacon is done, drain and seperate the cabbage, put this in a serving bowl with a knob of butter on top.  Slice your bacon and serve with fresh parsley white sauce.

I love mine with some Brown sauce. Enjoy

Thanks for the recipe.  If it has both cabbage and bacon in it I'm gonna be on it!!  Those are two of my favorite foods (along with a zillion others!).  This one I just might whip up after my next visit to the grocery store!  Thanks again!!

It does not matter where you are from....Can't go wrong with bacon, cabbage and potatoes!
Thanks for the recipe I will be trying this soon.  Price of cabbage right now is good so this my be my meal rather than corned beef. 

By the way do you have a recipe for shortbread and scones you would like to share?
