Cabbage and Sausage Casserole

This mind-boggling simple cabbage and sausage casserole recipe is super tasty, easy to adjust to your liking, and very gentle on the budget. 
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time2 hrs 30 mins
Total Time2 hrs 45 mins
Servings: 2


  • 2 lbs green or Savoy cabbage, cored and cut in ¾” thick slices
  • 1 lb fresh sweet Italian sausage meat
  • 2 tablespoon salted butter
  • ½ tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1-½ tablespoon minced garlic (optional)
  • ½ tablespoon hot pepper flakes (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 300°F. 
  • Butter a baking dish and put the first layer of cabbage in (about ⅓ of the chopped cabbage), then cover with about ½ of the sausage meat. 
  • Add some salt, pepper, and dots of butter. 
  • Repeat these layers, finishing with a layer of cabbage and another round of butter dots. 
  • Tip: If you’d like an extra layer of flavor, add some minced garlic or hot pepper flakes. 
  • Cover with parchment paper, then aluminum foil on top of that (the parchment paper will prevent the foil from interacting with the cabbage while baking). 
  • Bake for about 2 hours and check. The cabbage should be slightly brown and sweet (taste it). If you encounter some liquid on the bottom of the baking dish, bake for another 30 minutes uncovered. Otherwise, cover it up again and also bake for another 30 minutes.
  • Spoon into a shallow soup plate and serve with bread and mustard or maybe some egg noodles.
