Cabbage and Brats Recipe

Sausage shows up on the table often at Melanie Jones' place. "I make this simple stir-fried supper about every other week," she pens from Springfield, Illinois. Soy sauce and garlic powder add flavor to each bite of turkey bratwurst.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:5 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 small head cabbage (1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 large sweet onion
  • 1 package (19-1/2 ounces) turkey bratwurst links, casing removed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions

  • 1. Cut cabbage in half through the core. Remove core and cut cabbage into 1/4-in. slices; set aside. Cut onion in half and cut into 1/4-in. slices; set aside. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook and stir bratwurst over medium-high heat for 8 minutes or until browned on all sides. Drain and remove bratwurst; set aside and keep warm.
