  • 4 strips bacon, diced

  • 4 cups thinly shredded green cabbage (about 454g/ 1 pound)

  • ¼ cup chopped onions (about 1 small)

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 4 large egg yolks, lightly beaten

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese (about 30g/1 oz), plus extra for garnish

  • Fine sea salt and ground black pepper

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley leaves, for garnish


  • In a medium-sized cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, brown the bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp. Remove the bacon from the skillet, leaving the fat in the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium and cook the cabbage, onions, and garlic until the cabbage is very soft, about 8 minutes. Replace the bacon in the skillet.
  • Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly with tongs or a large fork, until the eggs are barely set. Mix in the Parmesan cheese until thoroughly combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with more Parmesan and parsley, if desired.
  • Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to four days. Place in a lightly greased skillet over medium heat for about 3 minutes to reheat.
