Cabbage Roll Bake Recipe

"I love the foods of my grandparents' native Poland but not the high calories and long preparation time," shares Jill Bednarek of Madison Heights, Michigan. "So I adapted this easy recipe that tastes remarkably like the cabbage rolls my mother learned to make from her mother."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1-1/2 pounds chopped cabbage
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef broth


  • 1. In a large nonstick skillet, cook turkey over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the cabbage, tomato sauce, tomatoes, rice, onion, garlic, thyme and pepper; mix well.
  • 2. Transfer to a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Pour broth over the mixture. Cover and bake at 350° for 1 hour; stir. Bake, uncovered, 15-20 minutes longer or until rice is tender. Yield: 8 servings.
