This recipe is a delicious way to enjoy cabbage. The searing adds a great depth of flavor to the dish, while the bacon ranch dressing adds a creamy and savory touch.


  • 1 head cabbage, cut into 8 wedges
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 slices uncured bacon or turkey bacon, reserve one slice for topping
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and place it on a paper towel to cool. Once cooled, crumble or chop the bacon and set it aside.
  3. Place the cabbage wedges the pan with the bacon fat remaining a few at the time and sear until lightly browned on each side. Transfer to a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes, or until tender and browned.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, buttermilk, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir in the 2/3 of the crumbled bacon.
  5. Remove the cabbage wedges from the oven and place them on a serving platter. Drizzle the bacon ranch dressing over the top of the wedges. Top with extra bacon crumbles. Enjoy!
