This Eastern European inspired dish is a great way to use leftover ham.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the cabbage; cook and stir until the cabbage has softened, about 20 minutes.

  • While the cabbage is cooking, fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the gnocchi and return to a boil. Cook until the gnocchi float to the top, about 3 minutes; drain.

  • Stir the cooked gnocchi and ham into the cabbage and heat through. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

Tips

Cook's Note

You can cut down on the butter a bit by adding substituting some olive oil or chicken broth. But I wouldn't cut out too much!

Tip

Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This was a home run! I used honeyham (a cheap not so tasty one at that)... Added a sprinkle of granulated garlic and powdered onion (just our personal flavor) and sauteed the onion and garlic in olive oil and used 3T of margarine... I also let it simmer for 30 minutes waiting for DH to get home... It REALLY was great. I'm not a huge fan of cabbage and still loved it... The best part though is that it was EASY to make even with 2 toddlers hanging on my legs! LOL

3.5 Used less butter not too bad and a nice change. Served with mashed carrots and parsnips.

Excellent! I needed to use up leftover ham from Easter and through I would try this recipe. The whole family loved it. I didn't change a thing on the recipe and will be making this anytime I have leftover ham!

I'm so glad I tried this!!! I simplified this by buying bagged shredded cabbage and it was a breeze! I know what recipe I'm going to when I have left over ham!

Easy and quick. Add more flavor by using garlic salt and I did not use all that butter. I used about 2 big table spoons after I added the cabbage. And used olive oil to saute the onion.

I was looking for a recipe to use up all the ham leftover from Easter & this one was a hit! Very easy to make & tasted delicious! I followed the recipe exactly other than I didn't have any gnocchi on hand (I've never even heard of gnocchi lol) so I used maybe a cup & a half of rotini noodles. Delicious & I'll definately be making this again! Thanx for the recipe Scott!!

I enjoyed this but my family was not impressed. I thought it was a good way to use up the leftover ham I had from Christmas. I happen to love cabbage and I keep trying different recipes with cabbage on my family hoping they will come around.
