CABBAGE ROLL CASSEROLE

Cabbage Roll Casserole - TSLCThis Cabbage Roll Casserole is one of my favorite cabbage recipes. My family loves this dish with cornbread.  This is real comfort food and a recipe that most men like. If you like cabbage, you will make this dish over and over again. It keeps well in the refrigerator and can be reheated in the oven or microwave.

1 pound ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1/2 medium sized head of cabbage, coarsely chopped

1 cup rice, uncooked (I use long grain, could use minute rice, too)

1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained

1 (14.5 ounce) can beef broth

1/4 teaspoon ground thyme

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons vinegar, white or apple cider

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

3 tablespoons white granulated sugar

2 cups shredded cheese (I use Italian style, can use whatever you like)

Brown hamburger, onion and minced garlic in a skillet on top of the stove, drain.  Whisk together in a bowl until well mixed tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, beef broth, thyme, black pepper, salt, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and sugar.  Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray and add half the chopped cabbage, half the ground beef and onions, half the rice and half the liquid tomato mixture for the first layer. Make a second layer and pour on the remaining liquid mixture.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven, uncovered, for 1 1/2 hours or 90 minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle cheese over top.  Put back into oven for about 20 minutes to melt the cheese.  Makes about 8 to 10 servings. Enjoy!

Note: Make sure you mash the rice down on the top layer so that it is wet and not dry. You can cover the last hour if you think the rice is not cooking or getting soft. I make this most of the time with long grain rice and it is always done in my oven at about 90 minutes.   I have not tried freezing this casserole.

CHEESY HONEY CORNBREAD MUFFINS

Cheesy Honey Cornbread Muffins TSLC - CopyThis Cheesy Honey Cornbread recipe is a great change from the usual cornbread we make for most meals.  Your family will love the cheesy taste of these muffins.  Spread with some real butter and drizzle with honey while they are still hot for a great treat.  These muffins go great with any meal or have one with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk for a treat anytime. Enjoy!

2 cups self-rising cornmeal mix (I use Martha White, see below to make your own)

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 eggs

1/4 cup honey

4 tablespoons butter, melted

1/4 cup sour cream

3/4 cup buttermilk

1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Whisk together the cornmeal and flour.  Add eggs, honey, melted butter, sour cream and buttermilk, stir well with spoon.  Fold in cheddar cheese.  Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray.  Fill each cup with batter and bake in preheated 425 degree oven 15 to 20 minutes until tops are golden brown.  Makes 12 muffins.

Note:  If you cannot find self-rising cornmeal mix, you can make your own by combining 3/4 cup regular cornmeal plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour plus 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. This makes 1 cup.  (You would double this formula for the recipe above).
