3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons bacon fat
1 small green cabbage, chopped
1⁄2 cup onion, chopped
1⁄2-3⁄4 lb smoked sausage, sliced (I like Conecuh, Original)
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained (I like Hunt’s Petite Diced)
1⁄4 teaspoon garlic salt, to taste
1⁄4 teaspoon Tony Chachere’s Seasoning, to taste (optional)
salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
Chop/slice the sausage, cabbage, and onion.
In a large non-stick skillet, pre-cook the sliced sausage about 3 minutes to render some of the fat out. Remove sausage from skillet and drain on paper towels if needed. Set aside. Wipe the skillet clean.
In the same skillet, melt the butter. Add cabbage and onion and cook and stir on medium-high for about 5 minutes, until cabbage starts to wilt.
Add remaining ingredients, and the sausage.
Cover the skillet and cook for about 10 minutes.
Uncover, and finish cooking until cabbage is desired tenderness and most of liquid has been reduced.
Bring pizza dough to room temperature. Cut the dough into strips and stretch/roll out. Roll up mini hotdogs in pizza dough so the dough wraps around twice – leaving the ends sticking out and cutting off any excess. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet until ready to boil.
Bring 5 Cups of water to a light boil. Add in 1/4 cup of Baking Soda. Once dissolved – boil wrapped hot dogs in water mixture for 20-30 seconds each (working in small batches). Remove and place back on baking tray. Brush each lightly with beaten egg and sprinkle with sea salt.
Bake in a preheated oven at 425˚F (220˚C) for 15-20 minutes – until the dough is nicely browned.
1 pound linguine
3 tablespoons butter (divided as 2 and 1)
2½ tablespoons Cajun seasoning (divided as 1½ and 1)
1 pound peeled and deveined large shrimp
½ cup diced yellow onion
½ cup diced green pepper
1 pound kielbasa sausage, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes

Cook the linguine in boiling water until al dente. Drain and set aside.
In the same pot, heat the butter, then add 1½ tablespoon cajun seasoning and mix the spice with the butter. Add in shrimp. Cook until the shrimp turn pink. Take the shrimp out and set aside.
Keeping the heat on, add in butter until it’s melted, then add in diced yellow onion and green pepper. Cook for 3-5 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Add in kielbasa sausage and cook for another minute, then add minced garlic, salt, Cajun seasoning, red pepper flakes, and dried thyme. When everything is cooked and mixed well, pour in chicken stock and heavy cream. Mix well, and cook for about 3 minutes.
When the sauce is thickening, add the shrimp and pasta back into the pot. Mix until everything is well-combined.
