Thursday Recipe - German Bubble and Squeak

Bubble and Squeak is just such a fun name. I can't resist it. It's also easy to make, tasty, and if you are picky about what sausage you use, it's healthy.

Traditional Bubble and Squeak is browned sausage and shredded cabbage cooked together until the cabbage wilts. Add some salt and pepper, and it's done. I took it a step further the other day and added more stuff. I think I like this version better.

German Bubble and Squeak

4 pre-cooked sausage patties, chopped into small pieces
1 large apple, cored and sliced
1/4 large onion, sliced
1/2 head cabbage, shredded (or use one bag of coleslaw mix)
2 T. water
salt and pepper to taste

Put sausage, apple, onion, and cabbage in a large frying pan. Don't stir! You want the sausage on the bottom closest to the heat with the apple and onion on top of that with cabbage covering everything else. Pour the water on top. Cover the pan and cook on medium-high for 3-4 minutes, until it is sizzling and starting to steam a little. Carefully stir it up. Cover and cook for another 2-3 minutes until the cabbage is wilted. Stir again and cook longer if needed. Make sure all the cabbage bits make it to the bottom to get steamed.

Add salt and pepper - about a 1/2 t. of salt and a few grinds of pepper are usually plenty for me.

Serve hot.
