Nothing says home cooking like Cabbage, Sausage and Potatoes wit

The second recipe in my budget kuts series is cabbage, sausage and potatoes. I mastered my cabbage from my Southern and Caribbean influences and New Orleans has a huge influence on its cuisine from the German’s, which is why our sausage is unmatched in flavor profile. All of these reasons are why this recipe is amazing. This recipe take about 30 minutes or more depending on how soft you like your cabbage.

Cooking Tips:

I use corn flour instead of corn meal because it provides a better corn flavor. You can use Jiffy if you’d like but this cornbread recipe will become a family staple.

    I have only made the cornbread from this recipe, but it is fantastic! Definitely a sweeter more cake-like cornbread, but the texture using the corn flour is so pillowy soft. I plan to make this many more times!
