- 1 cabbage
- 3 or 4 frankfurters cut into 1″ slices
- 1/4 cup chopped Italian cheese
- some tomato sauce salt and pepper
Cut core out of a cabbage and remove tougher, outer leaves. Quarter and then cut into small strips.
In a sauce pan saute cabbage in just a little olive oil a few leaves at a time. When done, remove cabbage. Saute onion in pan and then return the cabbage. Add some water and some tomato sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste and then cover. Cook one hour on a low heat. About a 1/4 hour before cabbage is cooked, add cheese and franks .
During the Depression it was not easy to get meat. So we did a lot of cooking with cabbage because you could cook it many ways and it was cheap. In those days I used to make cabbage fritters and cabbage patties. I even made cabbage with pasta. Can you believe that? Today, this is the only cabbage dish I still make.
