I'm nuts too...

At the risk of sounding like I have nothing better to do, I made this 2 ways tonight. One way was per recipe, with finely chopped cabbage, (for my kids who "claim" not to like it, they liked it this time) and the second was with quartered cabbage, & with fresh polish sausage from my AWESOME butcher (my mom always told me to "make friends with the butcher" & it has paid off) for my husband & I. WOW, I halved the butter & cooked the sausage with the potatoes & onion then added the cabbage for 5 min. GREAT! I had a nice long lunch out with my sisters today & this was a nice easy meal to make up lost time with!! The kids enjoyed their version & we enjoyed ours as well..sooo easy! Thanks Priscilla!!


This was very, very good. The only thing I did a little different was put the ham in with the onions and the thinking was that the ham would season the cabbage and potatoes. It was DELICIOUS! When I told my kids what I was cooking they said they wanted peanut butter sandwiches, but I made them taste it. They each ate a huge portion and said, "Mom this is so good! I didn't know I liked cabbage!" Thank you for an excellent, easy recipe!!!


This was yourself some time and use a can of potatoes. I used chicken broth instead of the water and added it as needed so cabbage wouldn't stick or burn. In stead of dashes I seasoned liberally with salt, pepper, paprika, and seasoning salt periodically as potatoes and cabbage cooked. I doubled the amount of ham and cut into small pieces so there was ham in every bite. This was absolutely delish! My son is my biggest critic ...he had not one bad comment (rare thing) and said "hmm, this is really good"!!
