Notes

I used Teton Water Ranch Polish Sausage for this recipe.
Precooked chicken sausage will work in place of the polish sausage. The flavor won’t be quite as deep, but it will still be tasty!
Look for a small head of purple cabbage for this recipe. If all you can find is a large head, and you don’t think you’ll use what’s left, ask your grocer to cut it in half for you.
Russet potato would work in place of sweet potato.
