Making false cabbage rolls..same taste less fuss...

 

Chop up a cabbage and boil..

 

Fry up ground turkey ..garlic and onion.

 

when cabbage is tender..drain water and add turkey mixture..plus stewed tomatoes...tomato sauce and a can of tomato soup to cut the sharpness....add 2 cups of rice to mixture and simmer for a few hours.

 

 

Fresh rolls and enjoy.....I freeze whats left over and makes a good meal when you are stuck.

neither..my mom used to make cabbage rolls often...and I always loved them but they are a lot of work...this is easy..

 

Im half Serb.  My dads side.  We used to have them a lot.  Dad made great cabbage rolls.

 

this meal is definitely a time consumer but I enjoy it and have no other commitments today.  I love being in the kitchen socializing, drinking and cooking.

 

if I had a larger or second oven it would be easier and quicker.  Cooking a veg menu as well as dead animal meal is also a lot of extra work.

I just had a turkey sandwich on toasted pumpernickel bread.  I'm down to only dark meat, but I still had some stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce, so it all went in the sandwich.  I did add mayo to both sides of the bread to make it extra zesty.  On the side were the leftover peas and carrots.  I would have had potatoes, but I fried them up as hash browns yesterday with breakfast.
