If you grew up in the Midwest or any area with German (or Eastern European) roots, you might have grown up with this hearty & healthy soup. And you already know that Smoked Sausage and Cabbage Soup is absolute comfort food. A bowl of this will warm you up from the inside out even on the coldest days.
I’m always looking for something fun to do with my leftover Corned Beef. I know it’s always good the next day just as is, but we so seldom have Corned Beef I really like to do something special. These Corned Beef Fritters are it!
First of all, no need for congratulations; I’m not pregnant! If I were, I’d have ice-cream with this. 🙂 I’ll admit, though, this is a decidedly different combination of ingredients, perhaps a bit odd, and it might just cause cravings! Flavorful corned beef, tart sauerkraut, sweet pickle and a touch of cheese all tucked into a crispy, tender pan-fried dumpling. See, nothing is sacred any longer…
Imho, the best reason for making Corned Beef is to have leftovers for a Classic Reuben Sandwich. Corned Beef, sauerkraut, a good Pumpernickel or Marble Rye, a simple dressing of home-made Thousand Island. I think maybe if I hadn’t grown up eating Reuben’s I’d think they were a little nuts.
When my baby Sis posted she was making her Nebraska Runzas (Bierocks) I became inspired. She (and her family) fell in love with them during her years in the Cornhusker State and my Sis knows her Runza. If you’ve never had a Runza, you’re in for a treat. It’s a beautiful, light fluffy bun wrapped around a filling of ground beef, cabbage, and onion. They’re good old-fashioned cooking with the emphasis on good!
