Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Remove and wash outer leaves from cabbage; line a 13x9-inch baking dish with the leaves to cover the bottom entirely. Shred remaining cabbage.
  3. Mix shredded cabbage, potatoes, and smoked sausage in a bowl; spread atop the cabbage leaves in the baking dish.
  4. Whisk milk, eggs, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; add bread cubes. Set aside until bread absorbs some liquid, 1 to 2 minutes; pour over the cabbage mixture. Top with butter slices.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the potatoes are tender and the top is lightly browned, about 45 minutes.

Delicious! The only problem I had was in the cooking directions. The potatoes and cabbage were not done within the given cooking time, so I poured about a quarter cup of chicken broth over it and covered in foil so that the veggies would steam and back in the oven for 10 more minutes. I knew it was a winner when my husband said right away,"This is really good"!

This recipe wasn't good at all. First the time it baked in the oven was not sufficient to get the cabbage done. The bread topping was bland and unnecessary. The taste was very bland and just a waste of my time and ingredients. I have a recipe that uses Cabbage, onion,garlic,potatoes,rutabaga,carrots and kielbasa- all cut about the same size(shred or chop cabbage). pour a can of chicken broth over all and salt and pepper to taste. Cover tightly and bake an hour. Use any combo of the vegies. It's wonderful..try it.

I made this as is( with extra time in the oven and a little added chicken broth), and it was delicious, but we thought the bread was unnecessary. So, the second time I made it in two batches, with two different variations. In the first, I omitted only the bread (but used a mix of traditional and turkey kielbasa, to cut the fat content). My mother and husband are both diabetics, so this cut way down on the carbs (even though I did use whole grain bread the first time I made it). The second variation was much more drastic: I omitted the potatoes, and added 2 cubed sweet potatoes and three (well-scrubbed but not peeled) cubed beets. The beets, as you might imagine gave the dish a reddish-tinge, but all five of us thought both dished were excellent. My parents begged for leftovers and ate them for days!!

Really great, easy dish to make. I was a little concerned that it wouldn't be flavorful because there wasn't a lot of seasoning in the recipe, but the kielbasa really flavors the whole dish. It's simple and delicious. The only modification I made (due to lack of bread in the house) was omitting the bread, and adding buttered breadcrumbs on top. I also had a problem with the potatoes not being cooked after 45 minutes, but another 10 minutes with foil on did the trick (as another reviewer suggested). I didn't even need to add any extra broth. Next time, I'll try cooking lasagna style...covered in foil for the first 30 minutes, and uncovered for the last 15 to crisp it up.

This was pretty good! I cooked the potato cubes in the microwave for six minutes before adding them to the cabbage, and I covered it for the first thirty minutes and then uncovered for the last fifteen. The cabbage and potatoes were definitely fully cooked, and it was still very moist. My husband said it was very good. I served it with cut-up fruit, which I think is better than a cooked vegetable with this, and dinner rolls.

This was very good. I used spicy sausage and instead of salt and pepper I used Cajun seasoning. The whole family thought it was excellent.

Surprisingly good! My husband had major doubts but went back for seconds right away! Next time will go without the bread topping (a little too bland). And will probably cut the sausage into smaller pieces. Cooked covered in foil for an hour to be sure cabbage and potatoes were done. But will definitely do again. Simple. Easy. Tasty.
