1 medium head cabbage

4 lbs. potatoes (about 8)

2 C milk

1 C chopped onions

1 ½ tsps. salt

½ tsp. pepper

¼ C melted butter

Crumbled bacon

Place 2 C water in a saucepan & add the cabbage and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, simmer covered until the cabbage is tender (about 10 minutes).  Drain, reserving the liquid.  Keep the cabbage warm in another dish.  In the same saucepan, combine potatoes with the reserved liquid & add more water to cover the potatoes and cook until tender.  Place the milk, onions, salt & pepper in a small saucepan and bring just to a boil and remove from the heat. Drain the potatoes and mash.  Add the milk mixture and beat until well blended.  Stir in the cabbage.  To serve: drizzle with butter & top with bacon.
