This Braised Cabbage with Potatoes and Bratwurst recipe brings together an unlikely combination of ingredients that creates one tasty, satisfying meal, which can be served for dinner or breakfast (or lunch!). I especially love the variety of flavors and colors and the fact that I never cooked with or even thought I liked red cabbage before experimenting with it for this meal.

It just goes to show that you are never too old to try something new. And I will add that it wasn’t until the 3rd time I served this dish that my girls really started to appreciate it and say, “Wow, mom this is so good!” (which is music to any mother’s ears!). I do think it was the egg on top that won them over. Fried eggs are quite the delicacy at my house for some reason. Anyway, enjoy! :)

    Yum! I added onion to the potato and cooked the cabbage separately with the chicken broth. It was delicious! Very similar to our favorite meal at the local German restaurant (except their red cabbage is sweet & sour and their potatoes have bacon in them). I’ll definitely make this again!

  2. Do you think I could make this sweet potatoes? It’s all I have on hand… Or could I just omit the potatoes?

      Hi there. We are not usually able to answer recipe questions in real time. Did you give it a try? Sweet potatoes are among my very favorite foods but it would definitely lend a different flavor to this dish.

  3. Hi there! I’m new to the real food movement. This recipe looks amazing, but I guess I didn’t think that bratwurst (or sausage in general)was considered real food. I’d love a little guidance along these lines if you’re able. :) Thanks!

      Hi there, Jaime. While it is not an item Lisa serves often, when she does buy meats such as bratwurst, they are purchased through a local farmer who processed the meat as well. :) ~Amy

    LOVE this easy recipe. We made it last night for dinner and the entire family enjoyed it. We used some venison dill brats and it was amazing!!

  5. Just made this for dinner. So yummy! Kids tried the cabbage and actually liked it! Thank you so much for the recipe.
