Recipe by 2Bleu

This is a wonderful dish for those cold winter nights. It's great for Oktoberfest, pot-luck dinners, sports tailgating, and camping. Simple to prepare, easy on a budget, and keeps for several days in the fridge.

Another favorite cabbbage recipe! Easy to make and delicious. Used parboiled small new potatoes, and served with fried onions for my onion loving family, and thick slices of crusty French bread. I'm serving the leftover bratwursts on submarine buns with fried onions, green peppers and mustard.
