Sausage, Cabbage and Onions are a classic combination of flavors. This super easy Sausage and Cabbage Dinner is quick and easy to prepare, and a hearty, satisfying meal. It's especially nice on a chilly night. My kids love it!
Prep Time 10minutes
Cook Time 20minutes
Total Time 30minutes
1poundItalian sausage links(about 5 links)
1poundcabbage, thinly sliced
2ouncesonion, sliced thinly(about 1/2 cup)
salt and pepperto taste
Grill the sausage or slice to cook in the skillet (see note). I grill because it adds great flavor and releases some of the fat.
Cut the cabbage in half (from top to bottom) and then into quarters. Cut out the core of the cabbage on each quarter. Cut the cabbage quarters into thin strips as if you were making coleslaw.
Chop the bacon into small pieces. Cook the bacon in a frying pan until crispy. Add the onion and garlic to the bacon and saute until softened. Add the sliced cabbage and saute until it is wilted and cooked down. It will take a while and you may have to add the cabbage in batches.
While the cabbage is cooking, slice the grilled sausage. When the cabbage is just about cooked through, add the sausage to warm it through. Add salt and pepper to your taste.
Makes 4 servings.
NOTE: If you are not grilling the sausage, slice it and cook it in the pan first. Remove it from the pan and pour out any accumulated oil. Proceed with the rest of the recipe.
