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.


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.
