What’s for Dinner?


Since my husband started a new job and is working some evenings, I am on my own for dinner!  What you don’t know (if you don’t know me in “real life”) is that I don’t cook anything but breakfast foods…I will cook eggs, etc. for dinner, but all I cook is “breakfast”.  Ever.  Period.

So I found myself alone the first evening shift and had to come up with something to eat! I remembered seeing a yummy looking recipe on Facebook…something with smoked sausage and cabbage.  I finally found something similar online, but I knew I wasn’t gonna be firing up the grill – the recipe I found was foil packets on the grill!  So, I thought to myself…I am 56 years old, I can do this !

And I did !!!  Let me tell ya, this is the best darn stuff !  This is how it went down…

First I cut up the Hillshire Farms Smoked Sausage in cute little sideways cut pieces and just browned them a little to give them that “grilled” look and to get some juicy flavor in the skillet.  When it was well heated, I took it out and put it in a bowl for later.

Then I put a little oil in my Rachel Ray Oval Dutch Oven from QVC, cut up a few potatoes (I don’t measure anything y’all…I’m sorry!) and one good sized onion and tossed the potatoes in the pan and pan fried (I’m guessing that’s a good term to use) them until they were about 1/2 way done.  I tossed the onions in and stirred it all up and let it cook until the onions were no longer white and crunchy.

Next, I put a head of cabbage (I cut it up in good sized chunks while the potatoes were cooking) in the pan with the potatoes and onions and added about a cup of water to the hot skillet, covered it and let the cabbage cook until tender (or however you prefer it).


Finally, the sausage got tossed back in on top of everything and stirred up well, then I let it simmer for a few more minutes, covered.




Voilà!  It’s done!  Boy, was it good !
