Cheesy Potato Skillet With Cabbage And Bacon

The whole kitchen smells absolutely wonderful with this dish in the oven.

Our neighbors have a new baby, and we wanted to send over something warm and hearty to make their dinner routine easier. This cheesy cabbage and potato bake is one of our favorite dishes, and the family next door loved it!

She said her school-age girls, who both despise cabbage, asked for seconds, and she and her husband finished off the leftovers for lunch the day after. Everyone loves this rich, satisfying combination of savory bacon and hearty vegetables, smothered in melted cheese. Our neighbor couldn’t believe the recipe was so simple. She can’t wait to try it out in her own kitchen!
