Cabbage Crumbs, Sausage and Black-Eyed Peas


In this recipe, julienned cabbage is first sauteed until tender, then quickly stir-fried with garlic for added flavor before mixing with the sausage meat, black-eyed peas, and cornbread (a veritable Southern classic trio if there ever was one), the cornbread providing the "crumbs" in the dish. You can use any type of cooked sausage besides the game variety called for here, and other types of beans, and even baked beans.
