This has all the taste of real stuffing, without the bread. You won't miss the bread and can "stuff" yourself as much as you like.

Sauté your onion and celery in the butter.

Add sausage, brown, crumbling the sausage finely.

Let the oils and butter brown on the bottom of the pan to get that great combination flavor.

Add seasonings and salt, to taste. If your sausage was pre-seasoned you can just add a little black pepper and cut the spices in half.

Add cabbage and continue cooking.

Add chicken broth to moisten as dish starts to get dry.

Put in a 3-4 qt baking dish and add the eggs.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes.
