A simple flavourful bacon sausage cabbage skillet for those busy weeknights.

This dish does not require a lot of ingredients but is flavour packed with every bite. It is a meal on its own that’s delicious, rich, buttery and very easy to prepare. If not cooked well, it can turn out to be a boring dish that no one would be looking forward to, however, this recipe makes it something the whole family will always be looking forward to.

Cabbage is an extremely healthy vegetable which we should try to incorporate more into our diets.

It is a recipe that can be enjoyed by everyone no matter what kind of diet they are following.

Being a one-pot meal, this dish comes together in less time. If you are into one-pot meals, also try this Easy One-Pot Rice Chicken.

If you are watching your calorie intake, you can eliminate the bacon and butter and replace them with 2 tbsp of olive oil. This will not taste the same but will still be good. This dish can be served as is or with steamed rice, fried rice, roasted or baked potatoes



I prefer green cabbage, however, red will work as well

Since the sausage has some spice in it, please feel free to eliminate the crushed pepper.

You can substitute the andouille for turkey sausage, or any other sausage you have on hand.

A co-worker of mine enjoys this dish with a splash of vinegar. 1 tsp of vinegar should give you that kick if you are a fan. I am personally not a big fan of the tanginess.

Use your preferred Cajun seasoning or try this quick Cajun Seasoning recipe.
