This is a recipe my Alabama mama taught me, who picked it up when she lived in New Orleans. I make it for my family in Oregon and they love it too! This is a traditional Christmas dish for our family, but could be eaten as an entree, a side, or even breakfast anytime of the year!

Fried Cabbage and Kielbasa

Rating: 4.5 stars 72
This fried cabbage and sausage recipe works well for many occasions. This is also the type of recipe that you can add to or build on to make your own. If you aren't too crazy about cabbage taste, keep in mind that the onion, bacon drippings, and kielbasa tone down that cabbage-y taste a bit; you can also add other things or spices to tone it down.

Rating: 4.5 stars 27
This meaty stew is usually made with wild game such as venison or boar, but you can use beef, pork, or other meat--just use a lot. It's perfect for feeding a crowd, especially when the weather turns cold and dreary.
