You can also swap the smoked Polska Kielbasa I used in this cabbage and smoked sausage recipe with another protein – chicken or turkey sausage if that is what you prefer.
What Type of Sausage to Use
Other delicious alternatives to the smoked sausage used in the pan-fried cabbage and sausage recipe are andouille sausage (if you like spicy), German sausages, or bratwurst. And of course, as I mentioned above, you can also use chicken, turkey,

Yum! I am a sucker for sausages served with cabbage. Pinning it to try on the weekend.
This looks so hearty and filling. I love both cabbage and sausages! Smoked Sausage or Polish Sausage would be great in this. I love andouille but having lived in Lousiana I kind of prefer it for other foods. However, I am also excited to try this with the Bratwurst you suggested or the smoked sausage. I bet my kids would devour this in a heartbeat. Saving to make later.
Such a great idea! My family’s going to love this for sure. Thanks for sharing.
Such a delicious meal!
Looks so pretty and flavorful! I love everything about this.
I definitely don’t eat enough cabbage! This is a yummy looking dish and I love that it is made in one pot and ready in 40 minutes. As you say perfect for weeknights!
This sounds like a delicious and hearty meal, ideal for feeding the family on mid-week days. It is a lovely mix of flavours and ingredients.
This cabbage and sausage recipe is a great low carb one skillet meal. I’m going to make this with andouille to give it some spice.
Such a delicious and healthy meal this one is and a perfect fit for my busy schedule. Will be making it soon.
One of my favorite meals and so perfect for busy weeknights – great recipe!
