Tender potatoes, crisp cabbage, and spicy sausage added up to an easy dinner that the whole family enjoys. Chunks of cheese melt into this dish adding just the right amount of richness.

Casserole-style one-pan dinners like this cabbage with sausage and potatoes are a must to easily feed my family. Have you tried the one pan ham potato broccoli casserole?

Cabbage and Potatoes

I say casserole-like because in my mind casseroles tend to be bland and flavorless and usually contain some kind of canned cream soup. This quick dish is far from that, but it comes together easily in one pan in the oven for a delicious dinner.

Fast, easy, and cheesy are some of my favorite words when making dinner. You could throw in nutritious, budget-friendly, and minimal dishes, for more words that are equally important but aren’t near as much fun to say together.

If you have an oven-safe skillet that will hold all of the ingredients, feel free to play it a little bit smarter than I did and simply bake everything in the same pan used for cooking the sausage. (I didn’t even think of that until I’d dumped it all into a pretty baking dish!)

For casseroles and one-pan or pot meals, I like to use hot sausage instead of mild in recipes like this one. The combination of potatoes and cabbage really pulls a lot of the heat out of the sausage and it seasons the entire dish.

While I usually stock up on hot sausage when I find it on sale, if I don’t have any on hand or can’t find it in the store, an easy hack is to just add ¼ to ½ teaspoon of red pepper flakes to the sausage when you brown it. This is enough to give your dish a very slight kick.

Cabbage is one of the best fresh vegetables to keep on hand. It works into soups, casseroles, salads, or just air fry, season, and enjoy it by itself. I always have it on hand because it can easily last 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator if not longer.

To Make this Recipe:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the potatoes in a large glass bowl and sprinkle generously with ¾ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper, ¾ teaspoon paprika, ¾ teaspoon garlic. Toss or stir well to coat. Add the water to the bowl.
  2. Microwave the potatoes for 5 minutes. Stir the potatoes and microwave an additional 3-5 minutes until barely fork tender.
  3. While the potatoes are in the microwave, cook and crumble the sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and continue cooking until the cabbage turns bright green and barely softens, about 3 minutes more.
  4. While the cabbage is cooking, sprinkle it with all of the remaining spices. When the potatoes are tender, place them in a 9×13 baking dish. Add the cabbage mixture to the dish and stir to combine.
  5. Add the cheese evenly through and on top of the dish. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the cabbage is tender-crisp and the cheese has melted. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.

Recipes with Cabbage

I know I have at least one cabbage convert among my friends. She has tested many of these recipes and her son asks for Cabbage Noodles weekly.

I laughed like crazy when he told her they were an 8 out of 10 only because they didn’t look very pretty, but he ate three huge servings. I am banking on getting a 10 out of 10 from him one of these days!

Oven-roasted cabbage with balsamic and roasted onions is nothing short of a crazy obsession. Try it and you will understand.

Your search for a cozy, filling soup ends here with this Italian Vegetable Beef Soup, the list of simple ingredients results in amazing flavor.

Air Fryer Cabbage is tender, crisp, and flavorful and best of all, you can make it in just a few minutes! This is a great side for feeding just a few people and it couldn’t be easier to prepare.
