"I have been making fried cabbage for over 50 years. Actually my mother taught me the recipe over 60 years ago. I always use about 2 1/2 lb. of bacon when I make mine. I simply fry my bacon and then boil the cabbage. I don't use spices because the bacon is flavored by the bacon. I make this for church socials family meals (with only 5 family members when I make it we eat it for a week but no one complains.) That is all that it takes to make this hearty and filling dish"

Ever tried Pretzel Crusted Chicken from The Cheesecake Factory? Tender, bite-size chicken pieces are coated in a buttermilk pretzel crust and then fried to give them a perfect crispy topping: Cheesecake Factory Pretzel Crusted Chicken Copycat
Preheat oven to 425 F.
Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a 10-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat.
Add the mushrooms and onion and toss to coat. Continue to slowly cook, stirring often and adding Worcestershire sauce about half way through, until mushrooms release all of their moisture and they and the onions are nicely browned, about 20 minutes.
Bake the bacon on a foil-lined baking sheet for 10 minutes.
Remove the bacon when it has reached the desired crispiness. Set aside. Use the remaining butter to spread on both sides of the buns and place them, cut side up, into the oven for 2-3 minutes to brown lightly.
Divide ground beef into 4 portions and form into patties.
Depress the center of each by making a thumbprint in the center this enables the meat to cook more evenly. Place a griddle or large skillet over medium heat and allow to get hot before placing the burgers on it. Cook, sprinkling with salt and pepper to taste, for 3-4 minutes per side or until done to your liking. Turn off heat and lay a piece of cheese on top of each burger so it begins to melt.
Immediately assemble the burgers.
On the bottom of the buns, lay lettuce then a cheese-topped burger, topped by the second cheese-topped burger. Spoon mushroom/onion mixture on top and finish with strips of bacon. Cover with the top of the buns and serve with garnishes at the table.
Did You Know?
While this copycat Five Guy's Burger is delicious, this chain definitely wasn't the first to develop the cookout staple. There are actually several theories about how the cheeseburger was invented, so I'll stick with the story about how the cheeseburger got its start in America. Years after the hamburger was popularized, the cheeseburger was created in Pasadena, California. Sometime between 1924 and 1926, a 16-year-old at a sandwich shop decided to experiment by dropping a piece of American cheese on a hamburger while it was on the grill, and thus, the cheeseburger was born.
Now, you can hardly walk down the street without passing any restaurant that serves a cheeseburger. The cheeseburger is less than a hundred years old, but is now found all around the world. There are thousands of combinations of this American classic. So whether you change up the bun, add extra toppings, or keep it plain, the cheeseburger is still a delicious staple.

These burgers were super hearty and really did taste restaurant quality. I'd recommend using fresh Provolone or Cheddar cheese from the deli.

I was shocked by how well this recipe mimics the flavor of Five Guys. It really hit the spot.
