If you've ever met our Aunt Nellie you'd know she's a sweet lady who really knows her way around the kitchen! So, when she shared her recipe for Aunt Nellie's Cabbage Fritters we knew we'd have to share the golden, crunchy goodness with you, too!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 1/2 cups white cabbage, finely chopped or grated
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup crumbled cooked bacon
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except oil; mix well.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat vegetable oil. Drop heaping tablespoons of batter into skillet; be sure not to overcrowd. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden.
  3. Remove to a paper towel-lined platter; repeat with remaining batter. Serve immediately.
Notes
  • These are a great go-along for just about anything! Why not try them with one of our favorite meatloaf recipes?

I love cabbage and with all the great reviews here, I just have to make this right away! It's like a potato pancake but better-for-you with cabbage. I don't have the best of luck with potato pancakes. They seem to be too raw, tasting the flour too much and they fall apart in the pan. So I'm hoping for better luck with these. I like the addition of fresh corn that one person mentioned here.

I watch the show from Colorado Springs. Instead of bacon, I used 1/3 can corned beef, also adding a touch of blue cheese and fresh basil. Instead of 1 egg, I used 3 egg yolks and water. I fried low with a lid on for almost 15 minutes. Dipped in OPA's greek yogurt dressing with a bit of horseradish added. Ooh, they were soo... good!

I was so sad and when I heard of Mr Food's passing a few years ago. I miss his shows. He used to have a daily spot on the news featuring a recipe and it was fantastic. And his enthusiasm was contagious. He was someone you truly believed loved to cook and eat.

the cabbage is tender-crisp and extra good. nice change...

A very different fritter, but also good. I tried it with corn added off the cob, very tasty.

Easy to make Very good

I made these twice..gave some to my neighbors..they loved them...you can't taste the cabbage..but they sure have a great flavor. The second time making them...I used ranch dressing for dipping. Sooooo yummy!!! Next time I'm going to use Zucchini...that should be good also.

I am trying eggplant for a variation. have a zucchini fritter recipe from Mr Food, also it is terrific,

I'm wondering if eggplant isn't too soft and mushy to substitute for the cabbage. However, when you make potato pancakes it works.

5 star

I tried these and we all liked them.A good and different way to eat cabbage.I think that zucchini and other veggies would work well with this recipe also.

I would like to know if these can be Baked instead of Fried.....and if so, at what Oven Temp. and for How Long should I bake them??

Unfortunately, these cabbage fritters cannot be baked.

OMG, so good, hot out of the pan with a little dollop of sour cream and now hours later cold left overs plain still delish!!

I made them for dinner and received thumbs "down" from my family for this dish.

I'm making these for dinner tonight. What is the sauce on top of the fritters?

We served ours with a dollop of sour cream and a few chopped chives. Enjoy!

Sounds good. Similar to zucchini fritters. Lightly salt and drain the shredded zucchini first. Good thing to do with large zucchini.

looks good

This is a great way to use up leftover coleslaw, instead of just shredded cabbage!

Looks good, but will try.

These were really delicious and made a great side for grilled chicken. Dipped in ranch dressing made them even more wonderful. Way to go, Aunt Nellie! This recipe is a keeper!
