(pictured above – cabbage roll, sauerkraut, creamed corn, mashed potatoes, homemade crescent roll, apple sauce)
I know the plate lacks color lol! But in this home – this is comfort food and we love it.
Every year my sisters come and help me make my pigs in the blanket while the kids play together. This is a picture from last year’s cooking day.
I am so blessed to have wonderful sisters – We do have fun together!!!
Another tradition is to make a Time Capsule. I take a Quaker Oats canister and turn it into a capsule!
1 pound hamburg
1/2 onion cut fine
1 cup rice
salt and pepper
dash of sugar
1 tablespoon of water
1 head of cabbage
1 Jar of sauerkraut 32oz.
Mix all of the above ingredients except the cabbage and sauerkraut in a bowl.
Put a pan of water on to boil. Cut and core the cabbage. Place the cabbage in the boiling water, core face down, and let the leaves come off one at a time.
Take a large pot and put a layer of sauerkraut along the bottom. Then roll a small amount of filling in a leaf. Make a layer of cabbage rolls and then layer it with sauerkraut and then a second layer of cabbage rolls. And top it with sauerkraut.
Fill the pan with water – sprinkle the top with pepper and let it come to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer until the rice is done and the meat is cooked through (around 3 hours). Enjoy!
When I make my pigs, I triple this recipe and get around 26 cabbage rolls.
