Mom's Crazy Cabbage

This is one of those oh so simple recipes where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. I wasn't expecting much from it, but it was surprisingly good! If you have dairy eaters in the house, my husband gives it an even bigger thumbs up with sour cream.

MOM'S CRAZY CABBAGE

1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1 small onion, chopped
1 small cabbage, coarsely chopped, about 1 pound 13 ounces before trimming *
14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
3 strips bacon
Salt and pepper, to taste

Brown the turkey and onion; drain off the grease and season with salt and pepper.
Put half of the cabbage in the bottom of a greased 9x13" baking dish.
Season with salt and pepper.
Top with the meat then the remaining cabbage; season again.
Pour or spoon the tomatoes evenly over the cabbage and lay the strips of bacon over the top.
Cover with foil and bake at 325ยบ for 3 hours.
Discard the bacon before serving.
