4 cooked cajun style andouille sausage (Chef Bruce Aidells recommended)

1 red bell pepper

1 green bell pepper

1 onion

3  cloves garlic, minced (1 tbsp)

1 tsp cajun seasoning

1 tsp black pepper

1 small head green cabbage (1 lb)


Using kitchen shears or a sharp knife, cut bacon into small pieces.  Slice sausage into ½” rounds.  Cook bacon and sausage in a skillet over medium heat until the sausage is brown and bacon is crispy, 20-25 minutes, stirring frequently.  Remove from pan, leaving drippings, and set aside.

Slice peppers and onion.  Add to pan and cook until peppers are tender and onions are translucent 10-12 minutes.  Stir in garlic, cajun seasoning and black pepper.

Coarsely chop cabbage into 1” squares.  Add to the pan with peppers and onions.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes.  If cabbage does not fit in the pan, cover the pan and allow the cabbage to cook down before adding more cabbage.

Add sausage and bacon.  Cover and cook until cabbage is tender.

  1. Process Freezer food is a convenient way to purchase food and heat.  People know and the USDA knows that injecting frozen food with chemical compounds to prolong the condition of the food. The affects can be unhealthy.  Why do the USDA allow chemical compounds in foods? How much of the chemicals are used to prolong the life of this food until purchased by a consumer?  As a foodie yourself Do you think it is fare knowing people are eating foods that is injected with chemicals?

    1. I don’t know why the USDA allows it but I’m sure the answer is long, complicated and political, as it is with all government agencies.  It’s up to us, the consumer, to educate ourselves on the dangers of processed food additives.  

      There are many reasons why people choose this sort of food and even more reasons that they continue to eat it, long after they know the dangers.  I’ve covered a few of these reasons here. I try to encourage people to make small changes in an effort to move toward a healthier life!

  2. Hi Cynthia! Great to come by another of your life saving Recipes. Sausage and Fried Cabbage is such a beauty which is  perfect weeknight dinner. Glad to have learnt something. The next time I am preparing this, I would make sure to add black pepper. I have bookmarked this and would share too.

    1. I have to admit that this is one of my favorites!  It’s fast and easy to make…and it only uses one pan.  The beauty of a dish like this is that you can adjust the seasons as you see fit.

      1. We made this Thursday evening with Chourico (sausage). It was a huge hit. I thought we would have enough to have leftovers for a few lunches. Everyone had seconds. There was 1 serving left after dinner. My son was here Friday for lunch and finished it. He said it was really good and the cabbage was cooked just right. It still had some crunch to it. This was a huge hit for 5 people. We will be having this again and soon! Thank you for this yummy recipe!!!

  3. Thanks again for yet another edition of your life-saving recipe, Cynthia! Much impressed! Yeah, Sausage with fried cabbage is a quality diet that anyone would love to prepare for weekend dinners, and besides the black pepper and head green cabbage, I am sure I can access the rest of the ingredients listed in your recipe. I will visit some local food stores and see if the other two ingredients are available.

    1. I recommended Chef Bruce Aidells because it doesn’t list any added chemicals but feel free to use whatever all-natural sausage that’s available to you!  Enjoy!

  4. Hi Cynthia, this recipe looks really yummy and savory. With all those good ingredients it can not go wrong. I like cooking with cabbage as it is a very healthy vegetable. It is one of those forgottten and overlooked garden vegetable that is actually packed with nutrients. I am on my way to the grocery store to prepare this meal for tonight.
