CHEF JEFF: One Byte At A Time — Fried Cabbage With Onions and Sweet Peppers

Sausage can be paired with many other foods. Here’s one of my favorite skillet recipes that combines cabbage, onions and sweet bell peppers with some wonderful country style sausage from Stan’s Supermarket in Wishek, N.D.

My friend, Delore Zimmerman, who hails from Wishek, kindly picks up for me some of the country style sausage and ring bologna whenever he goes home. One in a while, I swap him some of my homemade sauerkraut for the a couple of rings of sausage or bologna.

And that’s another combo that tickles my palate!
