Hey Elaine! Of course you would add the crumbled bacon into the cooled dressing. Our site administrator will amend the recipe to reflect. Thank you so much for catching this.

OK, sounds like a great recipe—-but what do you do with the actual 1/2 pound of bacon you cooked?  No where in the recipe does it mention it again after you’ve cooked it.

Do you just eat it and you’re only using it to get the grease?  Or are you supposed to add it to the dressing later and they just forgot to say this?

Here’s another way to cook cabbage. first if you have any leftover smoked ham will be fine.cut up in bite size pieces boil down it in a little water about 30 minutes,add cabbage cook til crisp tender and if you want to put parboiled potatoes in right after cabbage is done.You got your whole meal in one pot.My family loves it especially the men.
