In the mood for some delicious Polish comfort food...

like golumbki but you don't have the time?

You know what I'm talking about. Those little rolled cabbage leaves stuffed with tasty goodness. Heck, even if you're not Polish, most love golumbki.
Note: Everyone spells it differently. This is how we spell it.

Well, I am going to share with you my mama's "lazy" version. It's more of a casserole.
Being 100% Polish, I was raised on this stuff.

So get your pen and paper ready. Or now it's more like get ready to cut and paste this delicious recipe because I whipped up a batch today.

Lazy Golumbki

1 small head of cabbage (cored)
1/2 lb. ~ ground hamburger
1/2 lb. ~ ground pork
(or in a pinch, you can use 1 lb. ground hamburger)
1 large onion (chopped)
1 C ~ white rice
2 cans of Campbell's Tomato Soup (undiluted)
(Since I am anti high fructose corn syrup, I prefer to make my own using tomato sauce and tomato paste. Seasoning it with garlic powder, and a bit of sugar. But hey, the canned soup works just fine.)
4 Tbs ~ butter
Salt and pepper to taste.

Cook the white rice as directed and set aside.
Brown the ground hamburg/pork with the onion.
(I drain off the grease) Set aside.
Slice the small head of cabbage into thin slices.

In a large bowl add your hamburger/pork, white rice and canned tomato soup. Mix thoroughly.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a 11x13 casserole dish alternate a layer of sliced cabbage, then a layer of hamburger mix, then another layer of sliced cabbage then another layer hamburger mix...

"Dot" around the top with butter.
I like to dot it all over with about 1/2 Tbs with each dot.
Cover with foil.

Bake for 1 hour and ta-dah!!! Delicious Lazy Golumbki.

Ummm... Depending on how you "react" to eating cabbage, you may want to keep the windows open afterward. ((giggle))
