I know it doesn’t sound like much, but sausage and cabbage go together like peanut butter and jelly, and the sausage is full of fat and incredible flavor so you don’t need much else to make this dish delicious. I prefer the cajun sausage because I like things spicy, but you can use any flavor you’d like!

Ingredients
  • 1 (13oz) package of cajun andouille sausage (sliced)

  2. Add a tbsp of butter to your pan and sauté the garlic in the butter and sausage grease for about 30 seconds.

  4. Add the cooked sausage back to the pan, stir, and allow it to heat for another minute or two.

Recipe Notes

The cajun sausage is packed full of spicy flavor, so you may want to add a little cajun seasoning, cayenne, or other seasoning to the cabbage if you choose another type of sausage for this meal.
