Stuffed Cabbage Casserole


Cabbage is one of my favorite vegetables. Which is probably one reason why corned beef and cabbage is my favorite holiday meal. Since cabbage is in season right now we have been eating a lot of it. Usually I just sautee it up with some garlic, salt, pepper, and vinegar and serve it as a side dish. I could eat that every single night, but I think my family would soon stop wanting to eat it.

I saw a recipe for stuffed cabbage leaves but it seemed labor intensive and it didn’t really use all that much cabbage, it was more filling. A couple weeks later I came across a recipe for stuffed cabbage casserole and that seemed perfect. I took a couple different recipes, combined them, and came up with my own to fit my personal tastes.

Alyssa ate 3rds and was asking for 4ths when I told her she needed to slow down a little. Girl must be growing! Although with lean ground beef or ground turkey, whole grain brown rice, and fresh cabbage, it’s a nice healthy meal to grow on for sure!
