You can delete the picture by “checking” no images at the top of the page and if you hold your mouse over any part of the text you want to delete, it will turn yellow and you can delete that part.

Fried Cabbage with Sausage This is a quick and easy dish and makes a meal served with cornbread.

1 stick butter or margarine
1 small head of cabbage, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped or cut into strips
1 small onion, chopped
1 pound polish sausage, sliced into round pieces (can use smoked sausage)I use Hillshire Farm.
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
few drops of hot sauce  (optional)
Melt butter in large skillet.  Add cabbage, onion, and green pepper and cook on medium high for about 5 minutes stirring to keep from sticking to pan.  Add remaining ingredients, cover and simmer for 20 – 25 minutes.  Makes about 8 servings.  Enjoy!

  7. This recipe was absolutely delicious!!! My 5 year old niece does not really care for cabbage, but she had two helpings of this. I will definitely fix it again!!!

  8. Sounds
    …..great. Wouldn’t that be delicious on hot dogs or brats at a picnic. I can taste it now. Oops, my fingers are working faster than my head! You’d have to eliminate the sausage and put it in the hot dog roll, or put the whole mixture in the bun.. I’d better stop now, think I need another cup of coffee:).

  9. We made this and it is a super yummy dinner.
    We just love all your recipes. Thanks for sharing them with us all.

  10. Do you drain the tomatoes?

  11. I made this last night with a skillet of cornbread. I added a couple of grated carrots to increase the vitamin content! The consensus was DELICIOUS!! Really am. Enjoying going thru your recipes and trying new ideas! Thanks for your page! :-))

  12. tryed it tonight but added zuccini since i dont like green peppers and added stick carrots…..had it with sweet cheeder cornbread and boiled red potatoes …. talk about good

  13. as much as I adore the taste of butter, when I made this I used olive oil instead, solely because I am really trying to watch what I put in my body but the dish still came out fantastic! One of my husbands friends came over unexpectedly and just couldn’t stop talking about how good it was, in fact he made me promise to teach him how to make it! LOL

  14. I love all this. I am in hog heaven.

  15. We made this today and it was realy good.

  16. Making this for supper tonight sounds wonderful!

  18. I use bacon grease, apples and mix in collard greens. Even kids love it.

  19. YUM!

  20. loved the fried cabbage and ”sausage””

  21. I think I may have cooked mine too long! Didn’t look as appetizing but flavors were GREAT! I added bacon an some bacon grease to mine.

  22. being polish i have made this for years in various ways. BTW–if you can get it(i live in the Houston area), try Kountry Boy Sausage or Chappell hill both made in Brenham. you’ll never go back

  23. I just tried this and it is wonderful…however being the bacon lover that I am I cooked off about a half pound of bacon and added it right at the end so it wouldn’t be soggy. yummy!!!!

  24. I can’t wait to make this for dinner tonight! Only I’m using a hot sausage instead of hot sauce. I usually make fried cabbage with bacon, and have never tried the bell pepper in it. But this recipe sounds so yummy! Thanx!!:)

  25. Do you know the nutritional values? Thanks!

    • Hi Tiffany, I think you might be able to find some sites on the internet where you put in the ingredients and it will give you the nutritional value of the recipe. You might try that. Hope this helps.

  26. Made this tonight it was delish! I used a can of Rotel in place of tomatoes because it was what I had on hand.

  27. I’ve made this twice and skipped the green peppers and added boiled potatoes. Served it with chunky applesauce and cornbread. We all loved it! Thanks! Pat (married to a Corbin boy)

  29. This is awesome!

  30. I can’t wait to try this…it looks sooo good! I just love cabbage so this is right up my alley! :)

  31. I fix this at least once a month, but i also add fried choped bacon and sliced carrots & sliced hot hungarian peppers with boiled egg noodles to it as well…delish! Old fashioned Polish dish:)

    • OOO Thanks for your advice! I bet this would be good with some egg noodles! I’m adding that to mine!:)

  32. I work 12 hour continuous shifts at my job. I try to cook a few meals at a time on my days off so it’s easier for my handicapped mother, especially on the weekends. I just made this today for part of our weekend meal menu. It was AWESOME!!! I look forward to trying more of your recipes.

  33. This is a great recipe,how long will it keep if you leftovers?

  35. I am having this foe diner tonight. t looks real good.

  36. Thinking of Patty working 12 hour shifts, we do this in the slow cooker and it is amazing for sure, then it is ready when we are…. Maybe even a double batch…

  37. Do you drain the diced tomatoes or add them juice and all?

  38. I’ve made this 2 times in the past month. I love it ! I cut up cherry tomatoes, and add a little baccon grease to the pan when melting the butter. Next time I will also add baccon pieces along ith the sausage. So yummy !!

  39. This was a hit at our house will make it often

  40. I’m eager to try your cabbage n sausage.

  41. Oh my gosh, I just found this site because a friend of mine sent me the link to the Zucchini Hoecakes recipe, which I went and bought the stuff for today.
