In the mood for something easy and delicious? Who isn’t? Well look no further, this Keto Cheesy Cabbage Sausage Skillet is a breeze to make, oh so tasty, and best of all even easier to clean up. Personally this is my perfect keto meal, tons of veggies, a little bit of cheese, and high quality Kiolbassa sausages.

The sausage really is the star of the dish and I could have just done a recipe for polish smoked sausage with peppers and onions, which would taste amazing and smell even better. However, with the big winter storm that just passed through and dumped a foot or so of snow, which is a huge deal in the South, we’ve been snowed in and watching a lot of Chopped re-runs so I wanted to elevate the dish and make something special.

(Sidebar: My childhood vacations usually included a trip to Dollywood and everytime I smell peppers and onions being sautéed with sausage I’m immediately taken back there in vivid detail. I remember waiting in line for the Blazing Fury ride wearing my blue jean cargo shorts with a wind up disposable camera in one of the many pockets, my American Eagle shirt which included some sort of double entrendre I didn’t quite understand, and my faithful pillsbury bough boy hat, meanwhile my mom or dad would be in line with me wearing a poncho because they didn’t want to get wet.)

Anyway… back to the point, I don’t even want to know what might have been in those Dollywood sausages, but I know I can trust Kiolbassa to be the highest quality of meat, completely free from MSG, fillers and cereals.

In fact the good folks at Kiolbassa make such a fantastic product they stand behind it 100%. If it’s not the best sausage you’ve ever eaten, you get your money back. Those are strong words in today’s world, but I’m guessing they don’t have very many complaints. They’ve been hand-crafting a variety of sausages and bacon since Harry S. Truman was in office, and they do it as good or better than anybody, so go ahead and give this recipe and Kiolbassa a try!

I know I’m definitely going to check out the chorizo next to keep my eggs company on my breakfast plate.
