Stir in the garlic, mustard and 2 cups of the liquid from the sausages. Bring the liquid to a simmer and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reseason with salt and pepper. Place the sausages on the grill and cook for 2 minutes on each side. To serve, place the sausages between each bun. Top each sausage with some of the smothered cabbage.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, toss the potatoes and garlic with a drizzle of olive oil. Toss well. Season with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely. Using a mini food processor, combine the parsley and continue to process until incoporated. In a mixing bowl, toss the roasted potatoes and garlic, mayonnaise, sliced eggs, bacon and red onions. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours. Remove from the refrigerator and mix the salad. Reseason with salt and pepper if needed.
