Stuffed Hamburger-Cabbage Buns

cabbage rolls

I just love this recipe!  It’s made with pizza dough.  Now who is not going to like it ?  Right?  It can be made ahead and frozen.    I use my made from scratch pizza dough recipe, but you can use frozen dough or buy dough from your local pizzeria.   Any way these are really special!

I googled the recipe to see if I would be lucky enough to find it because I cannot remember where I got the recipe.   I’ve been using it for years.  There are plenty of recipes that are similar to this one.  Most of them make a huge amount using 3 pounds of pizza dough.  I cannot imagine making that many rolls.  WOW!  In fact this recipe could make 16 rolls which is the perfect size.  I usually make 8 rolls because I’m just too lazy!  Continue reading

Brucciloni

I love Italian food and if it’s a little fancy, but easy that makes it even better.  I haven’t made this in a long time because it is very hard to find a round steak that has both the top and bottom round. Check with your local butcher and if you can find the cut of meat then anyone can make this!  I made it when I was first learning to cook.  You just might need a second had to help tie the roll with string.  Although I did do it by myself today.  Brucciloni is a round steak that is stuffed with a sort of meatloaf.  The stuffing is ground meat, chopped onion, and Italian bread crumbs.  Roll it up.  Tie it.  Brown the roll in olive oil.  Simmer in a good red sauce for about an hour.  Serve with your favorite pasta.  It is so yummy!  You are going to love it.  Top it with a little parmesan cheese and use some really good bread to soak up the last of the rich red gravy.  You can do it.  I can’t because I have enjoyed the holidays too much!
