Growing up, my mom always made Stuffed Cabbage, and I will admit, it was not my favorite. But as I grew older, of course my taste changed, and now it is one of my favorite meals, and surprisingly, my kids LOVE this dish. Plus, with cabbage less than a $1 a head, it is budget friendly too!

  1. I’ve always love stuffed cabbage . Honestly, its been so long since I made it, I’ve forgotten exactly how. Thanks for thr refresher and I pinned it to Foods That Rule! just to be sure.

  2. Maria Iemma says:

    My Mother used to make stuffed cabbage when I was a young child. I have not made them in years…perhaps because her recipe was very involved. Your recipe sounds good and I just might make it this weekend.

  3. I’ve never made stuffed cabbage, but it sounds delicious and budget friendly.
