Turkey Sausage, Sauted Cabbage, Boiled Potatoes and Carrots

Turkey Sausage, Sauted Cabbage, Boiled Potatoes and Carrots

Hillshire Farm Turkey Sausage
head of cabbage, shredded

Pan fry sliced Hillshire Farm Turkey Sausage in a pan sprayed with oil

In a separate pan, fry 3 strips of bacon.
Remove the bacon and saute the onion in the bacon grease.
Put shredded cabbage in pan and cook to desired crispness.
Salt and pepper to taste.  Crushed red pepper is also a nice addition.
Crumble the bacon on top of cabbage.

In a pan of water, boil carrots and potatoes until fork tender.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Review:  This is such an easy and inexpensive meal to prepare and offers a lot of flavor.  It is great served with corn muffins.  The Turkey Sausage makes this a healthier recipe than if you use other sausages, but any would be delicious.  There is something about sauteing cabbage in a small amount of bacon grease that makes it fantastic!  Try this if you are not a huge fan of cabbage.  Traditionally this meal is cooked in one pot which is great for cleanup.  However, when you separate the ingredients the meat has a better texture, the cabbage is crisper and the potatoes don't get mushy because they take the least time to cook.  It is worth dirtying the extra pans.
