Sweet Sausage and Cabbage Concoction

Published: May 24th, 2011 / Last updated: March 23rd, 2012

Serves 2 / Calories per serving = 400 approx


  • sausage cabbage concoction2 small potatoes (200g), peeled and diced
  • ½ small white cabbage, sliced
  • 3 lean lincolshire sausages
  • 1 dessert apple, peeled, cored and diced
  • ½ tablespoon of olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Simmer the potatoes in a saucepan of boiling water for 15-20 minutes until cooked through but still firm.
  2. Meanwhile, prick the sausages and fry for about 10 minutes over a moderate heat, turning frequently. 
    Try not to add oil - they should release their own. If they don't, add a very tiny amount from the recipe allowance.
  3. Add the cabbage to the pan of potatoes and simmer for 7-10 minutes, timed so they will both finish cooking together.
  4. Slice the sausages lengthways and fry for a minutes on their cut sides, then remove from the frying pan. Leave the sausage juice in the pan and take off the heat.
  5. Chop the sausage halves into 5 or 6 pieces each and put on a plate to one side.
  6. Once the potatoes and cabbage are cooked, strain them and return the frying pan to a moderate heat, adding the oil.
  7. Once the oil is hot in the frying pan, add the potatoes, cabbage, sausage pieces, apple and seasoning and cook for about 7 minutes until the apple has started to soften. Stir frequently.
  8. Serve once everything has browned and the apple juices are flowing!
