A blog chronicling life as I live it. Recipes, stories, tips, whatever tickles my fancy. Hopefully within the pages you'll find some new ideas, yummy meals and a new friend. I love life, I love people and I love the relationship that I have with Jesus. I'm a mom, a wife, a friend, a daughter. Come join with me a cup of coffee or tea!
Jennifer from Chronicles of a Night Owl asked for the recipe for my cabbage rolls. So Jennifer and others, here it is. Keep in mind we just "put this together" with leftover meat, so I don't really have exact amounts.
approx. 1-2lbs. ground turkey
3/4 c. cooked white rice (or uncooked minute rice)
1 head cabbage
1 can tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
In a large soup pan place cabbage in boiling water. Cook for approximately 4 minutes or till leaves are soft and can easily be pulled from cabbage head. Place leaves in cold water to cool. In the meantime, place ground turkey, rice, salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika in bowl and combine. I simply put seasonings in until I think it has enough... in a separate bowl combine tomato sauce, diced tomatoes and remaining seasonings. Set aside. take each cabbage leaf and cut the thickest part of the vein out. Place a good amount of meat mixture on cabbage leaf. Fold once over, then fold sides in and continue rolling. Secure with a toothpick. Pour some sauce into the bottom of a baking pan. Place rolls in sauce. Continue with remaining leaves. If you have extra meat, just make meatballs. I also chopped extra cooked cabbage on top. When done pour remaining sauce on top. Bake at 350 for about 1 hour.
I also made a yummy Potato Soup and Oatmeal Rolls for dinner yesterday. They were so good. I've included the link for the soup. I didn't add the cilantro or Mrs. dash. I did add the Parmesan cheese, as well as some Swiss and cheddar cheese. This was a winner. I've included the recipe for the rolls below since I got this from a friend. I did my dough in the bread machine. I included a link for a very similar recipe if you want to do the whole thing by hand.
2 c. warm water (I found it takes a little less than that, or I end up adding flour at the end.)
1/4 c. softened butter
2 Tbs. molasses
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 pkg. yeast
1/3 c. warm water
4 1/2 c. flour ( I used 1/2 c. of whole wheat flour)
Cook oatmeal in 2 c. boiling water. When thick, stir in brown sugar, molasses, butter and salt. Let cool to lukewarm. Put in bread machine. Add a little less than the 1/3 c. water. Add flour, then yeast into bread machine and put on dough setting. When done, form into rolls and let rise to double. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes.
Note:when I received the recipe I wasn't quite sure what to do with the 1/3 c. water because when made by hand, this was used with the yeast..when I did it in the machine, I just decreased that amount a bit until it equaled about the amount of liquid that is usually called for in bread machine recipes..you might need to play with it a little)
