Today I’m linking up to share one of our best recipes! I don’t have any pictures because we’re still in the throes of moving, but I thought I’d share an easy favorite comfort food we love around here!

Cabbage Rolls or Stuffed Cabbage! 

My family has some deep pre-Revolution roots in this country, but we also have more recent roots. My Grammy’s parents (Mom’s mom!) immigrated here from Yugoslavia – modern day Croatia (my great-grandmother) and we think Austria/Slovenia/Italy for my great-grandfather (he’s a bit harder to pin down but we know he was in the Austrian army and came on a boat from Italy…). My Pap-Pap’s grandparents (Dad’s dad) immigrated here from Poland and Belgium. So, being from that region of Europe, cabbage rolls are a classic on both sides of the family. 


  • 12 cabbage leaves
  • 1 lb. hamburger
  • 1/2 C rice (uncooked)
  • 1/2 C chopped onion
  • Salt & pepper to taste 
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice

Cover leaves with boiling water, cover and let stand 10 minutes, drain. Mix hamburger, rice, onion, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and 1/2 C tomato sauce. Place 1/3 C mixture on each leaf and roll, tucking in sides. Place cabbage rolls in ungreased baking dish, mix remaining sauce, sugar, and lemon juice and pounovet rolls. Cover and cook in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Enjoy! 

*If the cabbage leaves need deveined, do so prior to softening in boiling water.
