I would suggest that when starting to cook this you use two separate frying pans. Caramelize the cabbage,onions, and pepper in a larger pot using olive oil and slowly saute until transparent. This will bring out the natural sweetness of the cabbage. In another frying pan cook the bacon to desired doneness. Drain off the fat before adding bacon to the sauted vegetables. Add just enough bacon drippings to flavor the dish. Sprinkle with a little Beau Monde Seasoning and serve. Full of flavor without the fat.
