scalloped cabbage!

Okay, so it totally doesn't look as yummy as it tastes. But here it goes.

1 head of cabbage cut into chunks (take out the hard stem part)
1/2 of a package of Velveeta like processed cheese food stuff
1/2 to 1 lb of bacon
1 onion (optional)
1 clove of garlic (sprinkle of garlic powder, or sprinkle of minced dehydrated garlic)

Chop up the cabbage, leaving out the hard woody like stem part. Peel and chop up the onion. Put them into a large dutch oven like pot, and cover with water and some salt. Bring to a boil and boil for 15 minutes.
While it is boiling, fry up the bacon in a skillet. Fry it until the bacon is brown and crispy. Take out the pieces individually and put them on a paper towel covered plate, not dumping the grease. Let them cool for a bit and tear them into tiny pieces and set aside. Bring the grease back up to medium.
Drain the cabbage and onion in a colander. Put the cabbage back into the pot and turn the heat to medium. Pour the heated grease over the cabbage and onions. Stir and saute the mixture for about 5 minutes. Add the bacon pieces. At this point start adding the cheese stuff. Cut it into little chunks and keep stirring until the cheese is completely melted. Salt and Pepper to taste.

Serve warm! :) It's sooooo yummy. Even my "I hate cabbage with a passion" husband loves it and requests it often!
