Smoked Sausage & Fried Cabbage

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 30 mins

I've been making this dish for years. We especially like it on New Years Day with Cornbread and Black-eyed Peas. Ymmm...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large frying pan, fry bacon until crisp. Remove bacon and drain.
  2. Add cabbage, butter and water to bacon grease and cook until tender. (Stir occasionally to coat all of the cabbage with bacon grease).
  3. Stop cooking when the cabbage is still a bit crunchy. Add salt and pepper to taste maybe a little more butter, not much.
  4. Slice sausage and lay on top of cabbage. Continue to cook a little longer to warm the sausage.
  5. Crumble bacon over all. Yummmy -- Great with black eyed-peas and cornbread.

This looked, smelled and tasted Delicious. Even the Picky Kids ate it! I Started with Bacon, Smoked Sausage and Sweet Vidalia Onions, then Added Minced Garlic, then the Green Cabbage. I also added Onion and Garlic Powder to kick the taste up just a bit more. <br/>Prep and Cooking was less than 20 Minutes with a Wok.

First, I must say that I'm pleased to be the first one to rate this recipe.Second,I made this on 12/11/07,and I'm sorry I waited till now to rate this very good recipe.Since there was just my SO and myself,I just made half of the recipe.Next time I make this(and there will be a next time :)),I won't be adding the butter it made it a bit too greasy for us.Thank for posting,and "Keep Smiling :)"

This is one receive that is a keeper. It's easy and delicious. I did add the minced garlic and onions. As for one of my seasonings, I added cayenne season. Remarkable. I will definitely cook this one again.
