Easy Sausage & Cabbage Supper

SATURDAY ST PATRICK’S DAY was so yummy..... we enjoyed my Easy Sausage and Cabbage Supper.  I love meals like this because it's quick and easy prep and one pot cooking!
                          We served our meal with Irish raisin bread - YUM!

This hearty dish was a perfect choice for our St. Patty's Day dinner and its a hearty dish of cabbages wedges, potatoes, carrots, apples and kielbasa sausage.

3 cups water
3 teaspoons beef bouillon (or that fabulous new Knorr Beef Stock)
6 small potatoes cut lengthwise into quarters
1lb whole carrots cut in half and quartered
1/2 head of cabbage cut into four wedges
2 medium apples cored and cut into wedges
1 package polish kielbasa

In a dutch oven or roasting pan bring water to a boil and add bouillon stirring until dissolved.  Remove from heat.  Layer potatoes, carrots and cabbage into bouillon, sprinkle with salt.  Place whole kielbasa on top of potatoes DO NOT CUT INTO PIECES.  Add apples and cover.

                            PLEASE NOTE:  the sausage in this photo was cut
                            into servings AFTER I removed it from the oven!

Place into 350 degree oven for approx 45 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are tender.

**Keeping kielbasa whole while cooking seals in all of the flavor and moisture - offering an amazing flavor when you cut into servings!

Helpful Cooking Tool - make sure your  dutch oven or roaster fits the portions you are making.  To big and the liquid will evaporate too quickly, to small and the liquid may boil over.

Pantry List:
beef stock or bouillon

Kitchen Tools
sharp knife
dutch oven or roaster

This an easy heart meal for any day of the year - but always a St. Patrick's Day favorite for us!
