Steamed Cabbage With Smoked Sausage & Red Potatoes


Don’t forget to have your New year’s Day cabbage for prosperity in the new year! I got this recipe from a friend year’s ago and have been serving it on New Year’s Day ever since. It includes sausage and potatoes and can be used as a main or side dish any time of the year!

This cabbage recipe is seriously delicious. The sausage brings the recipe to a whole new level adding a fabulous smoky flavor. The starch from the potatoes adds great texture. This simple recipe will be a great way to start the new year, but I suggest making it all year. It’s so good!
