Day 4 - Cabbage Rolls with Turkey-Cheese Stuffing
1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon sage, crumbled
1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
1 1/2 cup dices mozzarella (I used shredded)
6 bacon slices
And before any of you guys ask, I did not make Greek Salad today like I said I would because dad was complaining about eating salads all the time and that he wanted some real meat. So I changed the recipe and made something different so dad could have some "real meat."
After my temper tantrum with the cabbage, I blanched each leaf (or part of leaf) for 1 minute and then set aside.
Next, I combined the ground turkey, egg, 2 tablespoons of water, sage and parsley.
Then, lay the somewhat cabbage rolls with turkey-cheese stuffing in a shallow baking dish (I had to use three dishes), and pour the remaining water over top of them.
( I really like it with salsa, while mom and dad prefer it with hummus.)
Mom - I really enjoyed the cabbage, it had really nice flavor - wait no, it had no flavor. But it was good.
Dad - Nice tender cabbage, and good flavor throughout the whole thing.
For dessert I served some sugar-free chocolate pudding I had made earlier in the day. It was really good, especially since it had no sugar. It didn't leave an after taste, and was really rich.
