Cabbage Sausage Supper

"This is a very good and hearty old-fashioned dish that I think came from Taste of Home. It's almost like a stew or even a soup. I have tried it with keilbasa but it wasn't as good. I like to serve it with rye bread."

    The smoked sausage sounded so good, but I only had uncooked Italian chicken sausage. So I cooked that up with the onion and a little bit of Liquid Smoke. Instead of potatoes (we avoid them because of their glycemic index) I added sliced, unpealed sunchokes (Jerusalem artichokes). I also added a few de-ribbed and chopped collard greens because I didn't have a full head of cabbage, a chopped apple, and a Creole seasoning blend. I don't like overcooked cabbage, so all the veggies went into the pot at the same time. Since there is no grain in this dish, I served it with slices of whole wheat bread. Excellent!

    Ah, comfort food! DH scarfed down two platefuls. Served with Beer Bread #73440. Even better next day as leftovers. One big change I made, because we like our cabbage tender-crisp... Cooked sausage and onion as directed, then added potatoes, carrots, and water to cook for the 25 minutes. LASTLY, added the chopped cabbage and cooked another 10 minutes. This was perfect for us. Oh, and I halved it. It made two filling meals for the two of us. Only spice it needs is black pepper. Thanks for such an easy, yummy, nutritious dish. Love one dish meals!

    We love this with a hot/spicy smoked sausage ... a little red vinegar on the table for those who like it ... very yummy, very filling, very comforting!


I LOVE to cook and eat and read cookbooks. My kitchen really does overfloweth with them and of course this has quickly become my favorite cooking site! I live with my husband in a small town in eastern Connecticut. We are both retired. My children are all grown and have families of their own now. Our 3 grandchildren and 1 great-granddaughter all live in Florida and it goes without saying that we miss them very much, so when my husband retired last year we celebrated by buying a small RV! We so enjoyed driving it to Florida to spend the holidays with the little ones. Although COVID has prevented us from repeating the trip this year, I am enjoying learning new recipes to make in our RV for next year. I think the Instant Pot and the Crock Pot will be my new best friends while traveling!
