CREAMY CHEDDAR CABBAGE AND BACON CASSEROLE




CREAMY CHEDDAR CABBAGE AND BACON CASSEROLE

This is a delicious casserole.  Adding a little carrot brings color, flavor and extra nutrition to this casserole as well as the bacon and Cheddar cheese sauce.  Did you know that carrots are low with regard to glycemic load.  Yep, they do have a place on a low-carb diet, especially for those doing moderate low-carbing.  I never met a carrot that made me fat.  Sugar and white flour... almost every time I indulge I put on weight!   This time of year I choose to indulge a little...but I am choosy and I will choose one or two things, have a small helping, and leave it at that.  I don't like to put on weight, as it is so much harder to take it off again.
