Story Behind this Recipe

It's a quick and easy dish you need when you don't feel like cooking, when you need one more side dish, or when you don't have time.
I don't need a cutting board or a knife since I tear up the cabbage and bacon.
We don't have a microwave, but if you use the microwave for the whole recipe, the only thing you need to wash might be a plate.
