Northern Fried Comfort

As we prepare for up to 6 more inches of snow followed by our first arctic blast of below zero temperatures my mind turns to hunkering down to a nice hot fire in the fireplace and tasty warm food in my belly.

There’s plenty of wood in the wood racks.

My almost world famous Coca-Cola pot roast is in the oven. (See Ron’s Rambling December 11, 2020 post Legalized Pot Roast.)

However, a great pot roast takes hours to cook and I’m hungry now. What to do, what to do?

I’ve got it! Northern Fried Cabbage with Spicy Sausage and Bacon. I know, I know. Fried cabbage is a southern thing. Hey, if Wisconsin can claim Brett Favre as our own, we can also claim fried cabbage as our own.

Here’s R Dub’s version of this southern delight.


1/4 lb chopped bacon

1 small head green cabbage chopped

1 medium onion chopped

1 lb Spicy Sausage

15 oz crushed tomato

1 tbs Pork Rub

1 tsp Seasoned Salt

3 tbs Avocado Oil


Fry sausage and cut into slices

Fry bacon until crispy

Add 2 tbs of avocado oil

Saute chopped onion until caramelized

Add 1 tbs avocado oil

Add chopped cabbage

Season with pork rub and seasoned salt

Saute until cabbage is al dente

Stir in sliced sausage

Stir in crushed tomato and heat through.
