Sausage and Spicy Cabbage

Cabbage ranks pretty high on the list of our comfort foods around here. I think we are lucky that most of the kids really enjoy it.  I like to cook it in dishes instead of pasta. I think when the cabbage shreds get soft and sweet they are even better than noodles. 


6 slices bacon
1/4 cup water 
2 tablespoons white sugar 
1 onion, chopped 
2 teaspoons minced garlic 
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 
1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt 
3 teaspoons caraway seed 
1 large head cabbage, cut into small wedges 
1 pound Polish kielbasa 


In a large skillet, fry bacon over medium high heat until browned, turning once. Remove bacon from pan, reserving drippings, and place on paper towels.

Stir water, sugar, onions, garlic, red pepper flakes, seasoned salt, and caraway seeds into drippings.

Add cabbage, and gently stir. Cover, and cook over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes.

Add kielbasa to the pan. Cook, covered, for an additional 10 to 15 minutes. Crumble bacon over top, and serve hot.
