Baked Layered Cabbage


Hello, Dear Ones!

I thought I would share one our favorite casseroles with you today.

Baked Layered Cabbage.

Don't you just love cabbage rolls? 
Well, I do too but they take so much time to do and this recipe is a little bit of a short cut
and...
it's so tasty! :)


Hope you'll try it sometimes.


Baked Layered Cabbage

One Head of Cabbage
1/3 cup cooked rice
1 2/lb hamburger meat
2 small cans tomato sauce and 1 can water
1 onion, chopped
2 tsp salt
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp cloves

Cream Sauce:
2 Tbs margarine
2 Tbs Flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 Cups milk
2 eggs 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese


Boil cabbage leaves until soft. Reserve some leaves for layering bottom and top of dish and chop the rest. Brown beef and onion, chopped cabbage, salt, oregano, basil. pepper,  cloves, rice and tomato sauce and water. Simmer 20 minutes, stirring often.  Trim a little off thick ribs from each leaf. Arrange half of leaves, overlapping, in 13 x 9 x 2 baking dish. Spoon meat mixture evenly over the leaves. Top with remaining leaves, overlapping. 

Make cream sauce: combine all ingredients into sauce pan, except eggs, and heat to boiling. After it thickens, boil one more minute and remove from heat. Beat eggs and gradually add to hot sauce. Pour over cabbage and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350' for 40 minutes. 

Enjoy!



I haven't posted in a few days because I had a little medical procedure and I've been trying to milk it for all it's worth. I'm good at that.
You know, it's the one where you only can have liquids the day before and you drink a gallon of this stuff and you must stay very close to the bathroom, if you know what I mean! :)
Then you go and lay on your side and they give you sleepy juice and the doctor does his thing.
Now I hope the gal who emailed me saying I'm not real enough in my posts is reading my post today.
Is this real enough for you? :)
You know I share because I love you all so much! :)



Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Two Out of Thee Ain't Bad (because  it's sung by Meatloaf and I'm hungry) :)


Baby we can talk all night
But that ain’t getting us nowhere
I told you everything I possibly can
There’s nothing left inside of here
And maybe you can cry all night
But that’ll never change the way that I feel
The snow is really piling up outside
I wish you wouldn’t make me leave here

I poured it on and I poured it out
I tried to show you just how much I care
I’m tired of words and I’m too hoarse to shout
But you’ve been cold to me so long
I’m crying icicles instead of tears

And all I can do is keep on telling you
I want you
I need you
But -- there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you
Now don’t be sad
’cause two out of three ain’t bad
Now don’t be sad
’cause two out of three ain’t bad

You’ll never find your gold on a sandy beach
You’ll never drill for oil on a city street
I know you’re looking for a ruby in a mountain of rocks
But there ain’t no coupe de ville hiding at the bottom of a cracker jack box

I can’t lie
I can’t tell you that I’m something I’m not
No matter how I try
I’ll never be able
To give you something
Something that I just haven’t got

There’s only one girl that I will ever love
And that was so many years ago
And though I know I’ll never get her out of my heart
She never loved me back
Ooh I know
I remember how she left me on a stormy night
She kissed me and got out of our bed
And though I pleaded and I begged her not to walk out that door
She packed her bags and turned right away

And she kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
I want you
I need you
But there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you
Now don’t be sad
’cause two out of three ain’t bad
I want you
I need you
But there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you
Now don’t be sad
’cause two out of three ain’t bad
Don’t be sad
’cause two out of three ain’t bad

Baby we can talk all night
But that ain’t getting us nowhere
