Bratwurst Sausage & Cabbage Skillet

Jump to Recipe (<-- click here to jump right to the recipe)

For some reason, we had a lot of leftover cabbage and carrots from our annual Corned Beef and Cabbage St Patty’s Day dinner.

The cabbage is usually gone in a flash and we always wish we’d had more.

I don’t know what the turn of events was for this year but I was determined not to let these leftovers go to waste, despite all the corned beef being gone.

I also had a package of bulk bratwurst sausage in the freezer from a friend that I wasn’t sure how to utilize – so it’s been sitting in there for some time, just waiting to fulfill its sausage deliciousness destiny.

Last night I put my thinking cap on and got a little creative.

The result: this skillet that turned out super yummy and might just get in the line-up as an annual post-Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner leftovers/not leftovers meal.

I revamped those leftovers into something brand new and it didn’t feel like eating leftovers at all!

Minimal dishes (this is a 1-pot scenario), super quick to throw together and not allowing a thing to go to waste…which is pretty customary for me anyway, but especially now!
