Fried Cabbage and Potatoes
Fried cabbage and potatoes is a simple dish made with inexpensive ingredients, that is particularly popular in the southern United States. My favorite way to prepare this dish is to borrow from the flavors of Louisiana and jazz up this recipe with my homemade creole seasoning and sliced Andouille sausage.
How to Make Fried Cabbage and Potatoes
This meal fits nicely in a 12″ skillet. I recommend using a 12″ skillet lid to help the potatoes cook, which I understand a lot of people don’t have. You can either purchase a lid to fit a 12″ skillet or just use some aluminum foil to cover the pan as you saute.
If you don’t have a lot of experience chopping cabbage, I recommend taking a look at my How to Cut Cabbage tutorial for a quick step-by-step review.
The meal itself is simple to prepare. The sausage is browned in a skillet and then removed as the cabbage, potatoes, and onions are sauteed in butter until everything is tender and delicious. Everything gets tossed together at the end and served.
How to Customize This Recipe
This recipe can easily be modified to fit any tastes. You can use kielbasa instead of Andouille and even make the seasonings as simple as salt and pepper if you prefer. Some people like to make this a vegetarian dish without any sausage, or go the opposite direction and add bacon instead.
