Fried Cabbage and Sausage

If you love cooking with cabbage you should try our Cajun Cabbage Jambalaya. No, it’s not a traditional jambalaya but it’s delicious and has great reviews.


We love this recipe for a few reasons but one is it’s super easy to make and it’s also versatile. It comes together really quickly and it reheats well. You an make this in under 30 minutes and add any vegetables you like and switch up the sausage as well.


  • Butter
  • Cabbage
  • Green pepper
  • Onion
  • Polish sausage (can use smoked sausage), I use Hillshire Farm.
  • Can of diced tomatoes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Hot sauce, optional


You can swap out the smoked sausage in this recipe. You can use turkey smoked sausage for a lower fat and higher protein. You could also use chicken sausage. This dish is super versatile, if you are using summer vegetables from your garden, I think zucchini would be great in this too.


The most time consuming part of this dish is chopping up all the vegetables. Once you have that done this dish comes together really quickly!


Step 1
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.

Step 2
Add remaining ingredients, cover and simmer for 20 – 25 minutes.

Fried Cabbage and Sausage


When buying cabbage select the ones with the greenest leaves on the outside. Dark green leaves mean more flavor.  Once you cut a head of cabbage it starts losing its Vitamin C content.  This is why it is better to shred cabbage yourself for your recipes instead of buying it already shredded. Uncut cabbage will keep up to 2 weeks in a perforated plastic bag, once cut, wrap in plastic wrap but use within a few days for best flavor and nutrients.


  • Sausage and Cabbage Casserole – This dish is made with pork breakfast sausage and it’s one of our favorites. Great flavor!
  • Cabbage Roll Casserole – If you love cabbage rolls, this is one you must try! It has a little bit of a sweet taste and it also has great reviews.
  • Black-Eyed Pea Cabbage Soup – This recipe is a winner! Add this one to your recipe list and it’s great on New Years Day!


  • Southern Fried Cornbread – This is a must have with this dish, if you are a fan of cornbread this is the recipe to use! Always a hit!
  • Quickest Ever Yeast Rolls – These rolls are super easy and have great reviews. Delicious right out of the oven with butter!
  • Cornmeal Biscuits – These biscuits are a hybrid between cornbread and biscuits. We love them and they have a wonderful texture.


This dish is stored in the refrigerator and you can reheat it in the microwave or toss it back in the skillet on lower heat. It makes 6-8 servings.
