"Just made these for supper tonight. Cut the recipe in half, since there's just the 3 of us. But it was SOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOD! I'm sure the leftovers won't be in the frig long! Thanks! Hoping to make these for a family dinner some time, but till then, the 1/2 recipe will be fine for us!"

"Very good Recipe! Make sure your cabbage is shredded fine and drained really good or the potatoes are a bit runny. After a day of sitting in the fridge and reheated, they were perfect."
