A Cabbage And Sausage Recipe To Cozy Up With, All Winter Long

This smoked sausage and cabbage sheet pan recipe gets extra heft from Yukon gold potatoes. Toss it all on a sheet pan, 30 minutes later, you’ve got the makings of a real weeknight dinner success story. This simple cabbage and sausage recipe is easy, balanced and relatively healthy — like all of our sheet pan recipes — but we wanted it to also be truly magical. So, after everything is roasted, you’ll drizzle all of that tender cabbage, potatoes and sausage with a creamy homemade sauce that’s bright with mustard, dill and a splash of cider vinegar.

Ingredients For Our Sheet Pan Cabbage And Sausage Recipe

  • 1 green cabbage

  • Yukon gold potatoes

  • Extra-virgin olive oil

  • Sea salt

  • Kielbasa sausage. Kielbasa is also sometimes labeled as Polish sausage, and the two terms are interchangeable. One of the things that makes Kielbasa, or Polish sausage, unique is that it is smoked and therefore fully cooked when you buy it. Because of that, though, you can’t substitute any other sausage for the Kielbasa we call for in this recipe.

  • Mayonnaise or sour cream (sour cream will make the sauce a bit more tangy, while mayo will be milder and, depending on the brand, a bit sweeter)

  • Heavy cream (If you only have milk or half and half on hand, it’s OK to substitute)

  • Apple cider vinegar

  • Stone ground mustard

  • Caraway seeds

  • Dried dill

  • Paprika

  • Sugar

  • Fresh garlic

How To Make Cabbage & Sausage In The Oven

  1. Prep the cabbage, sausage and potatoes! You’ll want to use your sturdiest chef’s knife to core the cabbage, and it’ll come in handy for the sausage, too.

  2. Season. Gently toss the potatoes, cabbage with oil and salt on a rimmed sheet pan, and tuck the Polish sausage in between the ribbons of cabbage and potato pieces.

  3. Bake! About 30 minutes, until everything looks delicious and ready to eat.

  4. Make the creamy, zingy drizzle sauce. Grab your favorite little mixing bowl and whisk together the mayonnaise or sour cream, vinegar, mustard, caraway seeds, dill, paprika, sugar, and garlic.

  5. Serve! Drizzle the smoked sausage, cabbage and potatoes with the cream sauce, and tuck in.

How To Store Leftover Cabbage & Sausage + Tips

  • You can store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to five days, but they’ll taste best the sooner you eat them. If you expect to have leftovers, you may want to serve the sauce on the side and reserve some sauce to drizzle over the leftovers when you eat them. We don’t recommend freezing this meal.

  • For the creamy dill-caraway sauce, it’s fine to mince the garlic but if you have a microplane grater, try grating the garlic clove right into the sauce mixture. The garlic will almost liquify as you grate it, and whisk seamlessly into the sauce.

    This came together so quickly I was shocked at how delicious it was! Thank you for another one of your recipes I’ll have to add to the rotation.

    Thanks Anna, we are so glad you loved it!

  • Sarah

    This is one of the low effort/high reward dinners I know I can find on the Modern Proper. I added carrots to give this a little more bulk, it wasn’t *necessary* but certainly didn’t hurt. Such a delicious meal I’ll be making again.

    Thanks Sarah, we are so glad you love it!

  • Kate

    So easy and so so so delicious! The sauce recipe alone is a keeper for so many other things! 10/10

    Thanks Kate, we are so glad you loved it!

  • Jenn

    Crazy easy, life saver meal.

    Thanks Jenn!

  • Craig

    That creamy, zingy drizzle sauce is a perfect companion to the sausage, taters, & cabbage. Thank you!

    We're so glad you liked it too! We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
