This dish boasts the flavor of a twice-baked potato with a fraction of the carbs

Print this recipe
You don't need the carbs that come with a potato to enjoy all your favorite toppings. Try this dish that combines tender cooked cabbage with bacon, sour cream and tons of melted cheddar cheese for a delicious casserole rich in flavor and low in carbs.
Very thinly slicing the cabbage will help it cook up more quickly and achieve the perfect texture: both crispy and tender. The best tool for this is undoubtedly a mandoline slicer, which will provide even ribbons of cabbage. If you don't have this type of slicer, a food processor or very sharp chef's knife can do the job instead.
