CROCK POT RECIPE
Be honest, you would have never come over today if I titled this post Crock Pot Recipe. It sounds so boring, so Monday, but today is Thursday and deserves a touch of excitement. Today is also a snow day. Enough said.
I had a few emails and even a phone call requesting this recipe, so today I share. Actually FringeMan shares, because it’s his culinary masterpiece.
In warning, this recipe makes A LOT of food. Be sure to invite company or cut it in half.
SAUSAGE, CABBAGE, & POTATO MEAL
3 lbs smoke sausage cut into pieces 1-2″ in length
1 Large head cabbage cut into small chunks
2 or 4 Granny Smith apples
3 lbs size A (small) red potatoes halved or sliced
1 cup apple juice
1/2 small white onion
1/2 stick butter
2 Tablespoons Rosemary
Salt & Pepper to taste
Combine ingredients in large crockpot. Begin by layering sausage, then potatoes & onion, cabbage, and apples. Pour in apple juice and sprinkle your spices over the top. Allow to cook overnight on Low.
Next morning: stir to toss cabbage around so it cooks thoroughly. You can add the butter to the top before replacing the crockpot lid. Stir again about an hour before serving.
Yes, we cook this in the crockpot for a day and a half. FringeMan usually will only cook for a Sunday meal, so we generally eat in the afternoon around 2pm. You may need to adjust the cooking time depending on how full you fill your crockpot.
