Cabbage, potatoes, and smoked sausages are flavored with a little apple juice and vinegar, along with thyme and other seasonings. This is a flavorful mixture, and it makes a nice everyday dinner. Serve the dish with crusty bread and a tossed salad.

Feel free to add more cabbage to this dish if you have a larger slow cooker.


  • 2 pounds red-skinned potatoes (unpeeled or peeled, sliced about 1/4-inch thick)
  • 1 tablespoon butter (melted)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
  • 1 medium onion (halved and sliced)

  5. Sprinkle with remaining seasonings and then top with the sausages.
