Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cook bacon in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels, reserving drippings in the pan.

  • Add cabbage, apple, and onion to the reserved drippings. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, just until the cabbage and apple are tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in vinegar and the reserved bacon; toss to coat. Sprinkle with parsley and serve warm.
