Fried Cabbage with Sausage
I can’t wait for you guys to give this fried cabbage recipe a try! It’s such a great way to get dinner on the table quickly and, if you’ve ever wondered how to fry cabbage, you’ll see just easy it is!
Lately I’ve been having this weird love affair with smoked sausage. I think I mentioned that when I shared this sun-dried tomato pasta and this pressure cooker mac and cheese. Both of those have smoked sausage in them, which makes the recipes super quick and easy for busy weeknights!
This fried cabbage recipe is the same way. Totally easy to throw together and it comes together pretty quickly too!
My youngest, like a lot of kids, is pretty picky about her vegetables. The kid doesn’t like too many of them. I mean, I can get her to eat zucchini pretty easily. Lightly steamed broccoli is always met with a sigh, but that’s a total improvement of the usual dramatics of basically every other vegetable in the world. So. That’s my life.
She does, however, eat this fried cabbage and that’s something of a miracle. She doesn’t generally like cabbage, but it’s pretty hard to resist this one. Bites of juicy sausage, tender potatoes, and this tangy sauce that’s poured over the whole thing.
You wanted to know how to make fried cabbage? Now you know. This way is divine. 🙂
I hope you guys give this quick recipe a try and let me know what you think! Do you have a favorite way to eat cabbage? I’d love to experiment with it a bit more! I know y’all loved my eggroll in a bowl, so I’m guessing you’re fans of cabbage. 🙂
