I love cabbage–and onions–so Baked Cabbage and Onions is one of my favorite recipes.  

Hubby isn’t as crazy about cabbage or onions but he really likes it too.  It is just yummy!  

I cook it so it is good and soft.  If you like a firmer cabbage, just reduce the cooking time.  

By lining the pan with foil, the cleanup is easy too.

Do you know how to cut a cabbage?

Ingredients:

Low Carb Baked Cabbage and Onions ingredients

 cabbage

 onion

 butter

 salt

 pepper

 garlic powder

Instructions:

Line a 9×13 baking dish with two sheets of aluminum foil, one going each direction; enough that it will fold around the cabbage and onion to cook. Spray it with non stick spray.

Cut cabbage in half and half again so you have quarters. Cut out the core and then slice it about ¼ inch thick. The thinner you slice it, the faster it will cook. Cut the ends off of the onion, peel, and slice it thinly.

Arrange the cabbage in the pan and put the onion slices between. You won’t have an onion slice for each spot but just space them evenly throughout.

Slice the stick of butter thinly (this is easiest if it is cold) and put it throughout the cabbage slices too.

Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Tuck the foil around it and bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for about an hour. Check with a fork to see how soft it is. You may want it a little less than an hour for a firmer cabbage or a little more for very soft.

Hi, I want to make this recipe but I am curious what is the purpose of the foil? Does that help it so it doesn’t get too brown? Thanks!

Hi Ann, the foil does a few things. It makes cleanup easier, which is optional. Yes, it would also keep the cabbage from getting too brown or crispy. The main purpose though, is to keep the steam in to help it cook. I haven't tried it but I would think that a oven safe dish with a lid would work the same if you don't have foil. You would probably want a dish not too much larger than the amount of cabbage you have; just so the steam is trapped in there to help cook the cabbage. If you do it that way, let me know how it works! :) ~Cindy
