Rustic Rye Sausage-Cabbage Hash

This 3-ingredient hash (4 with the side dish) feeds 4-6 people for under $10 and under 30 minutes!
Cost: $8


  • 1 Pound Breakfast Sausage use your favorite but NOT spicy
  • 1 Small Head of Green Cabbage chopped into "rustic" size pieces 1"-ish
  • 1-2 tsp Caraway Seeds (to taste)
  • Salt & Pepper (to taste) I often don't add any because the sausage and caraway take care of seasoning

Roasted Potatoes

  • pounds potatoes of choice
  • 2 or more tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 475° (450° for convection oven). Line baking sheet with aluminum foil and pour a few tablespoons of olive oil in the center with seasoning (S&P) of choice. (Be generous with oil so your potatoes don't stick)
  • Wash and dry potatoes before cuttiing into ½"-¾" cubes. Place them on the baking sheet and toss with olive oil until they are WELL coated.
  • Place in preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until fork tender and golden on the outside.

For the Hash

  • In a large skillet, brown and crumble the sausage.
  • As the sausage browns, rough chop a small head of green cabbage into bite-sized pieces. Not too small, remember, this is "rustic". ;-)
  • Once the sausage is no longer pink, add the chopped cabbage and saute' until it's cooked to your liking. I like mind tender, crisp.
  • Lastly, stir in the caraway seeds and plate it up with the roasted potatoes. ENJOY!


*The cost of this recipe was estimated using potatoes as the side dish. However, rice or quinoa would be perfectly wonderful too.
