Spicy Sausage & Cabbage Skillet Melt

Keto Recipes > Keto Dinner Recipes

This is a fantastic family style skillet meal that you can put together any time. With all the spice from the sausage, you don’t need to get very many of seasonings out to flavor this dish. The cabbage adds a lot of crunch and the dish gets a light creaminess from Colby Jack cheese, which we will melt by steaming it with the lid on for a few minutes.

Sausage & Cabbage Skillet

If you don’t love spicy foods like I do, you can substitute a mild sausage instead. What you do want to be sure of is to find a sausage that is free from added fillers, preservatives or sugar.
Removing the casings from the sausages makes chewing easier, but if you don’t mind the casings it’s fine to leave them on. Simply slice the sausages instead of rough chopping them if you do.
One of the best aspects of this meal-in-one dish is that it can be served right from the skillet. It has huge eye appeal, loads of flavor, and I know you’re going to love it!
