  • 1 ½ teaspoons butter

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 4 links chicken and apple sausage

  • 1 medium onion, sliced

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 3 cups apple cider

  • 1 pound small Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed but not peeled

  • 1 ½ pounds finely shredded green cabbage

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, for garnish

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Combine butter and olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. When butter melts, add sausage links; cook until browned on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes.

  2. Stir in onion and season with salt and pepper; cook and stir until onion is slightly translucent and caramelized, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  3. Pour in apple cider, increase heat to medium-high, and stir in potatoes; bring to a simmer. Pour cabbage over sausage mixture and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer sausage links and potatoes to a plate.

  4. Increase heat to high and simmer liquid until thick and reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Return sausage links and potatoes to the pot. Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper.

  5. Garnish servings with mustard and parsley.
