My family always asks me to make this southern-style fried cabbage recipe by Smokin’ & Grillin With AB. I can’t blame them because it’s really delicious. It’s super simple to make and has tons of amazing flavors because of the sausage, bacon, garlic, and creole seasoning. You can serve it with cornbread, mashed potatoes, grilled chicken, or vegetables. Read on or watch the video below for full instructions.
