Do you like cabbage? I love it! I first ate this dish when I was pregnant with my third child. I hadn’t felt like eating, let alone cooking for several months. We attended a potluck dinner at a lady’s home with several families from church. I remember thinking this spicy cabbage served with fried apples was about the best thing I’d ever eaten! She shared her recipe with me and it has been made dozens of times ever since!
This dish has a tendency to be a little runny, so be sure to cook your cabbage as in the directions rather than boiling it. Frying it in the skillet will take out some of that excess water found in the cabbage. Melted cheddar cheese and spicy hot sausage make this one delicious side dish!
If you like cabbage already, I hope you love this recipe. If you don’t think you like it, you should give it a try. You just might change your mind!
