Italian sausages are often an excellent value, especially when they're on sale. As with anything, make sure to compare prices between brand names and sausages that are packaged by the store's butcher.
Serves 4 to 6
1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Prick sausages with a fork and cook, turning occasionally, until browned all over and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.
2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add cabbage and onion; cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Add vinegar and cook, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is just tender, 3 to 4 more minutes.
3. Stir in corn, salt, and pepper. Cook 2 to 3 more minutes. Serve with sausage.
Note: Try slicing the sausages into 1/4-inch "coins" before cooking them. After they're cooked, stir them into the sautéed cabbage and onion with the corn. If you do this, you can get away with using only 1 pound of sausage instead of 1 1/2 pounds, since cutting the meat into smaller pieces makes it go further.
