Personal Notes:
This simple crockpot recipe is a staple New Year's Day meal for our family. Although the kids don't love the cabbage, they can't get enough of the sausage and potatoes! It is a tradition for health and wealth for the new year and tastes even better the next day as the potatoes thicken the broth!
