Sausage & Cabbage Casserole

"This recipe was in an old Kelloggs cookbook I picked up from a thrift shop. I thought it quite strange as it called for sultana bran in the main casserole. Admittedly I left out the sultana bran when I made this but instead added some cooked pasta to make a great one dish meal full of veggies."

  1. Very tasty recipe. I caution those watching fat/sodium/sugar intake though. Even though the bran helps with the fibre, it is very high in the the others also. It could be made more healthly by using chicken/turkey sausages, sub olive oil for butter & salt-reduced chicken broth for water/cubes. Topping can be sub'd also. I found it very salty so I will also cut the salt out on the next try. Nice variation to normal cabbage recipes, thanks for sharing.
  2. This is a really delicious casserole, and was so easy & quick to put together. I loved the fact that it had several veggies in it, but I also could not find sultana bran (or any bran, for that matter). I used some bulgur wheat I had and it turned out good, but I think Mandy's substitution of pasta was a much better choice, so I'll be using that next time. We especially loved the topping -- so yummy and crunchy. Thanks for sharing this recipe!


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
