Roasted Cabbage with Eggs

Here’s an easy, satisfying supper for about 50 cents a serving–and  more than a day’s supply of vitamins C and K.  For a slightly heartier meal, make it with two eggs per person, or accompany with a small serving of egg noodles.

Serves 2

1 half head of green cabbage

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 eggs

Salt and pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Remove core from cabbage and place cut side down on cutting board. Cut into 1 inch strips and then crosswise into 1 inch squares.

3. Heat butter and oil in an oven proof skillet–cast iron, if you’ve got one. When oil is hot, add cabbage to skillet along with a sprinkle of salt and pepper and stir with a large spoon to coat evenly.  Place in oven.

4. Roast cabbage for about 40 minutes, stirring once half-way through, until browned and caramelized.

5. Using a spoon, create two circular “nests” in the cabbage, exposing the surface of the skillet. Carefully crack an egg into each, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and return pan to oven.

6. Bake 5 minutes longer for soft-cooked eggs; 10 minutes for hard-cooked.

    1. I guess it depends on how you put together your diet but, yeah, maybe a teeny bit over-cautious! For an average sized person, eating about 30% of their calories as fat (which I think is about right) this would represent about 1/3 of the daily fat budget. On the plus side, most of the fat is in the form of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. And these days, a lot of people would rather get their calories from healthy fats than from carbs.

  1. Your recipe was so easy, yet sooooo yummmmmy. I was looking for a recipe to use up the last head of garden cabbage. So glad I came across your site, because I love the cabbage and egg combination. Also, I don’t own a wok, yet I love to use cast iron skillets, so this was the perfect recipe for me. Loved it! Thanks. 12-01-2012 PA

  2. Was not expecting to see 18g of carbs. I get 8 of those are fiber but still surprised. Anyway, it does sound great! Thanks for posting
