  2. Stir well and then continue to fry for around 10 minutes, turning the mixture frequently.
  3. Using some of the butter, grease an oven-proof dish and then transfer the cabbage mixture into it..
  4. Mix the eggs and milk with a bit more pepper, then pour over the top of the cabbage.
  5. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and dot over the remainder of the butter.

    Would this dish freeze please?

  2. Jan says:

    Just what I was thinking, Evelyn. Also what would you serve with it?

  3. Val says:

    It will freeze but the texture deteriorates and the bacon content means it shouldn’t be frozen for more than a month. I wouldn’t recommend freezing.
    It’s a meal in itself but you could serve with potatoes to extend it.
