"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."
Serving Size: 1 (309 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"Loved it! Loved it! I added hamburger and sauteed onions and some jalepenos to spice it up as a main dish. I also went the pathe of using a little oil instead of butter ( I hate the taste of butter myself).It is very easy to prepare as well."
"My husband and I love this recipe !!! We took the left overs and served it with a sunny side up egg and it was still delicious. This time I will try to lighten it up a bit (as we are trying to be healthy) and make it with the 2 tsp olive oil as another poster said. Serving with lamb chops. Feeling kinda Irish."
"This was really good! I couldn't find savoy cabbage so I used regular...scaled down the recipe quite a bit using one large red potato and about 7oz of cabbage, this worked out well for the two of us. As usual the technique was great, will be making again! Thanks for posting!"
"This is incredible! The potatoes were crispy on the bottom and creamy on the inside, the cabbage was mixed in like a dream, and the Parmesan topped off, for me anyway,a perfect side! I didn't add any meat to it, because it was a meal in itself. I did add some onion, which I sauteed' along with the cabbage. I loved the way it turned out with some parts crispy and the others smooth and sort of sweet with the sweet onion I'd added. Thasnk you Kitten for another winner!Made for Go for the Green, an event at KK's new site!"
"I must say,"I loved this recipe". My boys didnt like it to much but I did. I will make this again! Next time I make this I am going to fry my potatoes a bit more and add some polish sausage! I think it is good, cheap and filling. I will add to my favorites! Thanks ;)"
"Yummy! I love red potatoes and I especially love them with cabbage! I even love to just microwave them together and sprinkle Molly McButter on them for a lighter version of this, have done it for years as a light lunch so when I saw this I just had to try it! I made it for dinner tonight as a side for "Baked Chicken Recipe #111514" and they were wonderful together :). Thanks a bunch! I love every Kittencal recipe I have tried!"
"My husband and I both loved this!! It was my first time preparing cabbage this way, definately not the last. We have several heads of cabbage in our garden growing and I am looking forward to this dish very soon!"
"My whole family loved this!Thank you for a different side dish to go with supper.An easy dish that doesnt call for a lot of extra ingredients that you dont have on hand."
"Loved this and wanted more but it was GONE! I've sauted cabbage many times but never thought to add the potatoes. Like Irish Colcannon but better. Thanks...this will be used regularly."
"Updated 4/6/09 -- I've made these potatoes at least once a week since I first reviewed! DH asks for them at least that often! Tonight I'm using red new potatoes. So delicious!!! AND I also use the Herb Butter in recipe #142213 in place of plain butter! (also Kitt's recipe) Try it! You won't be sorry!!! Original - 3/15/09 --Pure comfort food! This dish reminds me of something I would have had at my G'Ma's house! I did add a little garlic powder, for personal taste. DH and I had this as a wonderful side with porkchops and applesauce. I will make this again and again! Thank you for another delicious addition to favorites Kitten! Made for TOTM "It's not easy being Green... 3/2009"
"I made this as part of mine and SO's dinner, and most importantly for "KITTENCAL's Cook-A-Thon" on 12/07/08. Since there was just us two, the recipe was cut in half and it worked just great.I really liked the idea of boiling the potatoes for just a bit before pan frying. I removed the cabbage from the skillet before adding the potatoes, since I didn't want to over cook the cabbage while the potatoes were browning.Then , returned the cabbage long enough to just heat it through. Since I didn't have any parmesan, I subbed the same amount of Romano. This was really very good, and will be made again. Thanks for posting and, "Keep Smiling :)"
"It's simple and nothing fancy, but yes, it IS total comfort food! I added some onion. I really didn't keep it in a "cake" form. I just pressed it, mashed it and let it brown a bit. The parmesan cheese was like icing on the cake. This reminds me of crispy hashbrowns w/ cabbage. This would go well with breakfast. Thanx for posting this; it's a repeater!"
"Great flavor! I was looking for a recipe for savoy cabbage and found this. I added a leek and used 1/2 margarine and 1/2 olive oil and red potatoes (which I didn't peel). Didn't use the cheese and it was still good. I didn't do step 3, though. Might try just mixing the boiled potatoes in with the cabbage next time."
"Mffhhmm Goffmmnn... Sorry, it's impolite to talk with your mouth full isn't it? Very very good stuff. I love fried potatoes and fried cabbage. This was awesome. I added a big Vidalia onion and some sliced Polish sausage, skipped the salt and used some Lawry's. No lowering of calories here. Great job, very good lunch. Now I need a nap. :)"
"This was such delicious, homey, simple comfort food. I must admit that I couldn't allow myself to let this become crispy like a cake. The cabbage was so tender, soft and sweet from being caramalized in the butter, and the potatoes just added a creaminess to it. There was enough for the 4 of us, and I had some left over to share with my in-laws who had graciously shared their garden bounty with me. Someday I might be able to continue in step 3 to form a cake...but I might never make it that long before I start gobbling it up! Thanks for posting!"
"This was a wonderful dish! My husband loves fried potatoes but since we have been trying to "lighten" things up I have been hesitant on making them often. I felt better making this dish since it does have a veggie in it. I did omit the butter and replaced it with 2 tsp. of olive oil. I also sliced up one beef sausage link and added it to DH's portion since he is such a meat and potato kind of guy. We will be making this dish again!"
"Just posting an update: I just really love this recipe. I stopped off at my local organic farm and they had the most beautiful cabbage, so I immediately thought of this recipe and came home to make this and gobble it up for dinner. I wholeheartedly agree with bluemoon's review. It was indeed fabulous. I hadn't even read her review, but also decided to reduce fat/cholesterol. I used a cholesterol-friendly spread rather than butter, and omitted the parmesan as well. I also did not mash up my potatoes and form these into cakes, I just left them in cubes and continued to mix them with the cabbage. I really enjoyed this a lot. thanks for posting."
"Kitten, this was total comfort food. I think when I make it again, I'll add in some smoked sausage. Thanks for sharing!"
"I absolutely loved this dish. I probably could have gotten it a little browner on the bottom, but it sure tastes good, and that is the main thing. Thanks for a great comfort food!!!"
"This sounded just SO delicious but I was keen to lower the fat content, so I reduced the amount of butter (I was using a non-stick pan) and I added some other flavoursome ingredients so as to omit the parmesan cheese. Not that I don't love parmesan cheese, but lowering the fat content means that I'll make this more often. Influenced by ncmysteryshopper's Potato-Apple Latkes Recipe #134042, which I have made recently, when sautéing the cabbage, I added one apple, thinly sliced. I also added several cloves of minced garlic, the juice of half a lemon and a pinch of nutmeg. In step 3, I pressed the mixture into several cakes. More yummy crunchy crust! These cakes were totally scrumptious and so easy to make. We'll be enjoying this often and while it's summer here thinking cool thoughts of KITTENCAL in Winnipeg to cool us down! Thank you for sharing another fabulous recipe! I hope you don't mind my playing with it a bit to make a low fat version. I’m thinking next time of adding some pine nuts. "
