Mom ‘s Cabbage rolls 

1 lb ground meat

3 strips bacon

1 medium onion /minced

¼ c chopped bell pepper

½ c onion tops

1 c uncooked rice

1 egg

1 tsp salt

3 cloves garlic

Pepper to taste

1 cans tomato paste

Mix all ingredients except tomato paste and bacon. Steam 12 large cabbage leave in water for 5 minutes or soft enough to roll. Fill each cabbage leaf with mixture – roll and place in pan, open end down. Add water and cover rolls with tomato paste and bacon. Place in oven on medium 1 to 1 ½ hours.

My Grandmother was always the cook for Cabbage Rolls but with her passing my Mom started making them with her own twist. My Mom is a wonderful cook but before my Grandmother passing she never made them – a few times she tried they came out uneatable. But they are a family favorite and she picked up the recipe  and ran with it. My Mom is getting up in age and I guess I need to learn how to make them – Its all about passing the recipe box to the next generation here.  Lisa
