Spicy Sausage & Cabbage Skillet Melt

Skip to the recipe

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.
