MY LATEST RECIPES
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.
