• Bubble & Squeak

    Delicious Cabbage sausage dishBubble and squeak combines the flavors of your favorite sausage and delicious steamed cabbage topped with a generous handful of sharp cheddar cheese. This very simple recipe is very inexpensive and quite filling.


    • 1 Head of Cabbage, wash and chopped into 1" pieces
    • 1 tsp garlic salt
    • 1 lb Sausage
    • 1 c. Sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded

    Steam or boil the cabbage until soft. While it's cooking, crumble and brown the sausage in a skillet. If the sausage is fatty, drain it.

    Once the cabbage
    is done (soft to your liking),plate it, sprinkle lightly with garlic salt, top with a generous scoop of browned sausage and a handful of shredded cheddar cheese. Let the heat of the sausage melt the cheese for a minute before serving.

    I recently found an excellent deal on sausage for only .50 per pound. Clearly this it not a normal occurrence. If sausage is expense in your area, you can make your own using a pound of ground turkey (which is available in rolls in the freezer section at Walmart for $1.10 per pound)


    1#lb Ground Turkey or Pork
    1 tsp Ground Sage
    1 Tsp Fennel Seeds
    1/8 tsp Black Pepper
    1/8 tsp Garlic salt
    1/8 tsp oregano

    Mix the spices together and then fully incorporate into the meat. It's best if you can let it set several hours before cooking it, but if you're making a quick dinner, you can use it right away.

      Sounds like heaven! Unfortunately I think only hubby and I will eat it. But believe me I'll try to get the kids in on it.
