Butter a 9-inch pie plate or tart pan. In a medium saucepan, blanch cabbage in boiling salted water for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and plunge into cold water. Drain again and transfer to paper towels to dry. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes, or until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl. Reserve bacon drippings. Add cabbage to the bacon and toss gently. Sprinkle potatoes with pepper and toss in bacon drippings. Layer 1/3 of the potatoes in the prepared pan. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the cheese, top with half the cabbage mixture and sprinkle with another 1/3 of the cheese. Add another 1/3 of the potatoes, the remaining cheese, then the remaining cabbage mixture. Top with remaining potatoes. Cover with a sheet of parchment paper or aluminum foil and bake in preheated 400-degree oven for 45 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes. To serve, cut in wedges.
