Halloween Brain Cabbage recipe

Halloween Party Tips Recipes

If you have a lot of zombie guests at your Halloween party you'll have to feed them brains but how about trying this cabbage brain? A whole baked cabbage is slow roasted for hours, yes it takes time but it's so delicious. I had no idea whether this would work and in the tradition of the insane, I decided to test it out on the night of my Halloween party! Sometimes things work out and this is one of them.

step 2 - Cut out the core of the cabbage with a sharp knife. Dig out a large cavity to put the filling in. Line a baking tray with foil or parchment and place the cabbage on the tray. If it doesn't sit flat then slice a bit off the bottom so that it lies flat. Fill with the bacon, bbq sauce, parmesan and half of the butter. Bake for 2 hours.

Step 3 - Remove from the oven and place the remaining butter slices between the leaves (the cabbage should have opened up somewhat) and brush the outside of the cabbage with the 2 tablespoons of bbq sauce. Return to the oven for another 1.5 or two hours until very soft.
