Recipe feedback: “Omg!! This is so amazing!!! We made it tonight with eckrich smoked sausages (skinless was all they had) a full head of cabbage and 6 medium/large potatoes in medium-largeish cubes and butter. We used the whole package (just over 2lbs) of the sausage. We added the salt (garlic salt) and pepper at the end and my husband gave it 10 out of 5 stars and he’s not a very big fan of cabbage. He asked me to make this at least once a week! Thank you so much for an amazing recipe” -HHC

“This recipe is so good!!! I have tried several of your recipes and have loved them all. Being a Southern girl living in the Midwest it’s wonderful to have recipes that take me back to my roots. Thank you.” – Amie

“Omg this was amazing however I added baby carrots and opinions to it. No salt or pepper though. Figured everyone could sprinkle that on their own dish. I did however drizzle olive oil over the top before I put the lid on to cook. My husband said this was one of the best meals he ever had and honestly he loves all my cooking!” – Sue
