Keto Roasted Sausage and Cabbage

Keto Roasted Sausage and Cabbage

Sausage and cabbage are two things that I didn’t eat a lot of before starting Keto. If I did eat sausage then it was in the form of a sausage dog. And Cabbage? unless it was in coleslaw that just wasn’t happening! How on earth did I go so long without discovering how wonderful these two things can be mixed together? This Keto roasted sausage and cabbage recipe is fabulous! It was one of those happy accidents that happen when the cupboards and fridge get too bare close to grocery day. Even better? It’s one of those one pan meals that make clean up a breeze! We have made it one of our family staple recipes and now I am sharing it with all of you!

Keto roasted sausage and cabbage prep

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 Degrees
  2. Line a large baking pan with tinfoil or a silicone baking mat. I personally prefer the silicone baking mats, not only are they reusable and better for the environment but they are easy to wipe down and clean. The tinfoil always rips somewhere and I get left with a greasy pain in the butt to clean baking pan!
  3. Place your chopped cabbage in an even layer on the baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Mix to ensure even coverage.
  4. Salt and Pepper to taste.
  5. Spread pats of your butter evenly throughout the tray.
  6. Sprinkle minced garlic evenly throughout the tray.
  7. Slice your sausage into medallions and spread evenly across the tray.
  8. Add any optional ingredients now, except for the cheese. If you want to add cheese wait until the last 5 minutes of baking, otherwise it will burn.
  9. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes, check and stir the mixture occasionally so that one side of your sausage and cabbage doesn’t get overly browned. You want your cabbage to be fork tender and slightly browned for best results.
  10. Serve and enjoy!

  1. This looks great. I have seen similar recipes in the past, though not keto versions, and have always said I would try them. Cabbages are starting to be readily available, so I foresee this being added to the meal plan next month – since June is already planned for.

      I have become a huge fan of cabbage lately. Not only is it healthy but it also tends to be one of the cheaper veggies in the grocery store haha.

          Honestly, you can’t go wrong with just Cabbage, Olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic roasted until slightly browned and tender!

  2. I would have never thought to mix the two together but looking at the picture it does look very nice! Very creative and yay for one pan meals! Thanks for sharing your recipe <3 xx

      I have had some veggie sausages and crumbled up seasoned tofu before that would probably work just as well!

  4. This sounds like something my husband would absolutely love. I’m vegetarian, but always looking for good recipes to make for him because he’s not lol

      You could always sub out the Sausage! Tofu maybe or just another veggie though you might have to add some more spices as the sausage seasoning adds a good bit of flavor.

  5. I love learning this keto recipe! Interesting to see the different types of ingredients used – it is pretty good with the macros too, especially with the carbs! Thanks for sharing! Looks tasty 😉
