Delicious Butter Baked and Broiled Cabbage Slabs.

OH my heavens.

I'm a vegetarian.  I don't know how or why this even happened, but over the course of a year, maybe two, I found myself really loving a meatless lifestyle.  I do love animals, but I'm not going to throw ketchup on your furs, I'm just feeling a lot better going veggie. AND I get to eat dishes like THESE for BREAKFAST!

SO here's how its done..and there's nothing complicated about this at ALL so please tweak my recipe to your liking.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Your cabbage:  I cut mine into 1/2 inch slabs. I like my cabbage "al dente"..not slimy and flaccid. (giggle)

Prepare your cookie sheet by brushing it with some olive oil.  give it a good coat.

Now. lay down your cabbage slabs and just smear the heck out of them with REAL, salted BUTTER.  OH yeah, baby....I said it.  BUTTER.  It's good for you.  Get that butter all over the place.  Grind some sea salt and some fresh peppercorns on top of that.  OH MY GOSH.


Put. It. In. The. Oven.  Now set your timer for 20 minutes, but check at about 15 minutes.  When the bottoms are becoming brown and the cabbage is turning translucent, flip 'em...let them bake for 15 more minutes.

Now turn your oven to broil and give them a nice brown.  The tops will caramelize with the butter and THAT'S what we're looking for.  My oven took about 7 minutes, yours might take more or less time, so keep your eye on it.

Here's what we want to see:


You're almost done.  You can eat this as is and its delicious.  If you're a carnivore, add some bacon bits.  I love to serve mine with some good marinara, and a sprinkling of parmesan....whatever you decide, I promise, that caramelized cabbage, butter and salt and pepper is absolutely to die for. 

Here's mine, seconds before I devoured it. (at 10am)  haha!  Enjoy! 

Tell me how you tweaked this to you or your family's liking in my comment section!
