These Oven Roasted Cabbage Wedges are a fantastic healthy and low calorie side dish recipe that are not only delicious, but SO easy to prepare. I kept getting so many cabbage heads in my Farm Fresh to You Produce Package, I had to start finding new things to do with it. The first time I made these roasted cabbage wedges, my husband grilled them and they were fantastic!! The second time I made them, my husband was at work, and I have no desire to cook anything on the grill myself in the midst of August heat. So I decided to roast them in the oven and they turned out just as good. The addition of the bacon gives them such a nice flavor and adds some pizzazz to the mild flavor of the cabbage. These can also be sliced into a total of 8 thinner wedges, if you want to get more out of it, and lower the Points value. If you are a fan of cabbage, definitely give these Oven Roasted Cabbage Wedges a try. They are the perfect Weight Watchers Recipe to serve up at that last summer BBQ!
