    Quick and Easy Weeknight Dinner

    Quick and easy sausage and cabbage skillet – it has a handful of ingredients but the flavors are amazing! My husband and 2-year-old son love this meal. Prep work is minimal and it goes from the fridge to the table in about 40 minutes. And I love that it’s made in one pan – easy and quick clean up. I am using here my favorite cast iron skillet from Staub. It’s beautiful, durable and easy to clean.

    A lot of people use cabbage in recipes mainly around St Patrick’s Day or as garnish when making tacos, in salads and more. But with its rich, buttery flavor, it’s a great comfort food all year around. Especially during the cold winter months, this one pan smoked sausage and cabbage recipe is a delicious and easy weeknight dinner your whole family will love.

    Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable that is packed with fiber, vitamin C, potassium, and other essential nutrients. It helps improve digestion, lower cholesterol levels and keep inflammation in check. It’s a great vegetable to add to your diet if you are trying to lose weight.

    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, beef-style smoked sausages sliced into thin rounds.

    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.

    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.
