Spicy Sausage and Cabbage

This is a take on one of my hubby’s family favorites. This still wasn’t hot enough for him, so he added more heat to his bowl. If you like cabbage, this will become a favorite. If you are on the fence about it, kind of maybe, try this recipe. It might become one of your favorite ways to eat cabbage.

This is a great trim healthy mama s recipe. It isn’t a heavy s, like quite a few I have on here. As written, this recipe is dairy free and delicious. My kids put cheese on theirs but I didn’t. If you feel the need to have more with this recipe, serve with a side salad. If you didn’t. want to cook this in the oven like I did, just cook on your stove-top until finished. I cook the dish about half way and then place in a baking pan. It is pretty much summer in Texas and our air conditioners are running almost non-stop. When I make this again, I will just cook it to finished in the skillet on the stove, so I didn’t. heat up the house with the oven.

This is the hot sausage I used. You can use whatever sausage you can find. And hot sausage isn’t necessary. You can even use mild if you need to use a sausage that people with sensitive mouths can handle. If you follow a low carb diet or keto, this will fit both of these eating plans.
