Teddy’s Stuffed Cabbage

One of my favorite and healthiest friends has been posting recipes recently and in an effort to cook more, be healthier and save some cheddah, I borrowed her recipe and made it last night.

You know what? TSpice knows where it’s at with the health food. Not only was the recipe really easy to do, it tasted sooooo good. The sort of good that you eat until you are full and still want more. It didn’t taste like rabbit food. It was hearty and filling and made a ton of leftovers! I changed her measurements a teensy bit, but it’s essentially the same recipe.

You should make this, and if you don’t you are incredibly foolish.


  • 1 head of cabbage
  • 1 jar of spaghetti sauce
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2-3 servings of rice
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of bread crumbs
  • 1 lb ground turkey


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Make the rice (instant is fine, I made it with instant long grain brown rice)
  3. Boil the head of cabbage in a large pot – 4-5 minutes. Drain when finished.
  4. You can do this next step while the cabbage is boiling – In a baking dish, add meat (uncooked), egg, breadcrumbs, onion, and rice. Mix together thoroughly using your hands (a chef’s best tool!).  Throw in some salt and pepper, garlic, onion powder, or anything other seasonings you might like.

    The Meat Mixture

  5. Coat the bottom of the baking dish with a little (1 cup or so) spaghetti sauce.
  6. Once mixing is done, take off one leaf of the cabbage. Wrap about 1 1/2 cups of the meat mixture in the cabbage leaf like a burrito. When finished, place in baking dish. It’s okay to use 2 or 3 leaves – just make sure everything is covered.
  7. Repeat process until all of the mixture is wrapped. I filled up my baking dish and used the rest of the mixture to make a small meatloaf!
  8. Pour the rest of the spaghetti sauce on top.

    In the oven!

Notes: Use more eggs or bread crumbs depending on what your meat mixture is looking like. Mine wasn’t sticking together, so I added another egg and breadcrumbs from the original recipe and it worked great! Also, some people prefer more sauce rather than less, so get yourself an extra jar (TBW liked a lot of sauce!)

The finished product. Cut it open and you can see everything inside!
