I know, it sounds weird, doesn’t it? But I got this idea in my head and took off with it. Eric gave me his standard questioning look and voice with “Sauteed cabbage? Ooookaaay … ” He trusts me. He tried it. He liked it!

First, I fried up 1/2 pound of sausage patties in my cast iron frying pan.

After removing the sausage patties, I tossed in about a tablespoon of butter and about 3 cups of coarsely chopped cabbage. I added freshly ground salt & pepper, tossed it all around a bit, added a spoonful of water, then covered and cooked on medium-low for 10 minutes.

I took off the cover and let the little bit of excess moisture cook off while I beat a few eggs with milk, salt and pepper.

I removed the cabbage to the plates, scrambled the eggs, and added them to the plates along with a slice of toast.

This was a surprisingly good supper! Good enough that we got it gone before pictures could be taken, and I only got one pan dirty to do it! Well, along with a cutting board, strainer, mixing bowl, whisk, and spatula. And two plates & forks for eating.

Let this be a reminder to all of us: Cook boldly. If you get an idea, try it, even if it sounds crazy! You never know when you’ll come up with a new favorite dish. Will those ideas always work out well? Of course not. But you’ll never know if you don’t try.
