Polish sausage

  • Five cloves of roasted garlic or crushed raw
  • 2 teaspoons of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon of paprika
  • 1 tablespoon of sea salt

Cook with sauerkraut or as patties

This is very yummy

Notes:  I had to edit this because when I bought more ground pork and made it again, it came out very salty.  I increased the meat to spice ratio and it worked out better.
The second time I also roasted the garlic and I like the flavor better with it roasted.
Lastly, my suggestion is to make it in small batches.

OMG!! I can not tell you how good this was..  It simply has to be experienced.

The original recipe came from Smitten Kitchen .  We took that recipe and turned it primal.

Here is our version:

Ingredients for the crumble:
1/2 cup of ground pecans
1/8 cup of date sugar
1 and a half tablespoons of molasses
1/2 cup of cassava flour
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1 dash of nutmeg
1/4 cup of butter.

Ingredients for the Filling
2 large pears cored and sliced  ( I left the skin on)
3/4 cup of fresh cranberries
1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice
dash of lemon zest
1/8th cup of molasses
1/8th cup of maple
1 tsp of vanilla
1 Tablespoon of arrowroot.



Preheat oven to 350

Stir together the ground pecans, flour, date sugar,  and spices.
Melt butter and then add molasses.
Mix the butter/molasses mixture into the flour mixture until it has the consistency of putty.  Set aside

In a bowl mix up the filling ingredients, add the arrowroot last.

Move the filling to a buttered baking dish.  Spread the crumble mixture evenly over the top.  Bake for 30 minutes

Note:  we are goign to try it with apples as well.  I’ll let you know how it comes out.

I never used to call them cabbage rolls, growing up, my mom always called them pigs in a blanket.
So once i got married i decided to share one of my favorite winter meals.  My hubby was so excited when he heard what I was making for dinner…..
And he was just as disappointed when what i served was not little sausages wrapped in pancakes.  Lol

1 head of cabbage boiled until flexible.
2-3 cloves of garlic minced
1 onion minced
1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
1lb ground pork (i used pork sausage this time)
1 lb ground beef
Grated cheese
Roasted tomatoes,  a can of sauce or left over Spaghetti sauce.                                       Grated cheese.


Boil cabbage, core and separate leaves
Set aside
In a bowl mix spices (oregano, basil, salt, pepper, fennel, crushed red pepper), Parmesan cheese, and meats together.
In the old days we would add rice to stretch
Mix well
Pull out a couple of baking dishes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spoon meat into cabbage leave and roll tight.  Place roll in pan.
Fill pan, top with sauce or roasted tomatoes and sprinkle lightly with cheese.
Bake for 1.5 to 2 hours and test a small roll


Often served with mashed potatoes or mashed cauliflower.
