We had some leftover sausage (we’ve been using so much sausage lately!), cabbage, and potatoes we needed to use up before they went bad, and also some pastry we’d bought when we were craving quiche earlier, so I decided to try making a cabbage pie! I couldn’t find a recipe I liked online, so this is totally made up on the fly, but it turned out sooo hearty and tasty - really good comfort food!
I’ll try to write down the recipe as I remember making it.
2 pre-made pie crusts (for top and bottom of pie)
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 head cabbage, chopped
4 small potatoes, peeled and chopped into dice-sized cubes
1/2 lb kielbasa, chopped
1 tsp minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
1 Tbsp or more dried dill, to taste
salt and pepper to taste
scant 1/4 C flour
1/4 C butter
milk (sorry, didn’t measure)
scant C shredded mozzarella cheese
Saute onions, sausage, and cabbage in olive oil until vegetables are soft. Meanwhile, microwave potatoes for three minutes. Add potatoes, garlic, dill, salt, and pepper to veggie mix and continue sauteing until done.
Make a white sauce with the flour, butter, milk, and salt, and then add cheese until melted. Mix sauce with veggies and sausage.
Put bottom crust in a greased 9 inch pie pan, and fill with filling. Cover with top crust, seal edges, and slice air holes in the top.
Bake for ~50 minutes at 400. You may need to adjust this, as we ended up tweaking the baking temp and time a lot as we went along.
Anyway, it was totally improvised, but SO good!
