Kittencal's Fried Potatoes and Cabbage

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

I have made this for years, it's just total comfort food that is filling and just plain good, you may reduce the butter amount if desired if you are watching your fat intake ---it has very few ingredients but makes a really great side dish you can even throw in some dryed smoked sausage if you like --- prep time includes boiling potatoes.

Easy side dish to go with country style ribs. Used half a cabbage, about 1/4 cup sliced onion, and a couple unpeeled medium size white potatoes for two people. Not much left over. Some crumbled bacon or small ham cubes would be nice additions. Would be easy to experiment with seasonings such as southwestern or Cajun if desired.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the potatoes until tender; drain well.
  2. Heat the butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, the saute the cabbage, seasoning with salt and pepper until tender (about 10-15 minutes, might take longer).
  3. Add in cooked potatoes, mashing and stirring them into the cabbage while leaving some lumps remaining, then pressing the cabbage and potatoes to form a cake; cook without stirring until the underneath is crusty and golden brown (about 10 minutes).
  4. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
