Thread: Casserole: "cabbage rollesque" 4 pts

  1. #1


    Hi - this is a family recipe that sounded really good, called Cedric's Casserole. Some famous MC & newspaper columnist in the Wenatchee neighborhood way back in the 30's or 40's loved cabbage rolls. One of my ancient cousins realized he was coming up the road, and she didn't have time to roll up some of his favorite for supper, so she improvised! With great 4 Point results, I might add! (of course, she probably used full fat ground beef, but who says you can't tweak a recipe!? I also removed the 3 Tbsp butter!)

    1 medium onion
    butter flavor nonstick spray
    1/2 lb super lean ground beef - 9% or 7%
    3/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1 head coarsely shredded cabbage, divided
    10.5 oz can condensed tomato soup

    SautŽ onion in nonstick spray, add beef, heating though, but not browning. (this is what her recipe says!) Season with salt and pepper. Spread half cabbage in a 2 qt baking dish, cover with meat mixture, top with remaining cabbage. Pour soup over the top and bake, covered at 350” F (moderate oven) for 1 hour. Makes 6 servings.

    I counted this as 4 points each serving, since I used 12 oz (not 8) of super lean beef and 1 serving looked to me like 1/2 cup meat on my plate!

    This dish is so great! I have made it several times. I tweaked the recipe slightly by using a package of Coleslaw mix, instead of a head of cabbage. I prefer ground turkey and I used it as it has 7 g fat. Where the recipe called for the Tomato Soup, I used the New Campbell's Tomato Soup with Roasted Garlic and it was wonderful.
