Cabbage Roll Casserole Recipe

Cabbage Roll Casserole is one of my absolute favorite meals! I posted this recipe previously when I first started blogging, and since it turns out so good, I decided to re-post with a new photo.  I also shared this a couple weeks ago over at Love Bakes Good Cakes for a guest post. I love Jamie's blog. Stop by and check it out. 

Both my daughter and I just love this recipe! We've made it many times, and it continues to be a favorite. It's so easy to make too. Enjoy!

  1. I love this recipe is nearly the same, but I'll have to dig it out of my files. Thanks for sharing...and inspiring...and making my mouth water!

  2. I remember my mom making cabbage rolls. I loved them, but they seemed like a lot of work. This recipe takes all of the work out! Love it.

    Thank you for linking up to the In and Out of the Kitchen party! I look forward to seeing what you bring next week!

  3. I like this. Love, love, love cabbage rolls and this is such a great idea!

    We're having a party and this would be a great hit.

    Hope to see you there,

  4. When looking at the picture, it looks like you used diced tomatoes, however, none are listed in the recipe. Did you used any diced tomato? Would like to make this today and was wondering.

    1. Hi Susan! I do use one 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes! Just revised the recipe. Thanks so much! :)

  5. I love cabbage rolls though I haven't had them in a long, long time and I've never had it in casserole form. I'm saving (pinning) your recipe to try on my family in the near future. Thanks so much for sharing. Visiting you from Full Plate Thursday.

  6. Hope you are having a great weekend and thank you so much for sharing this awesome recipe with Full Plate Thursday.
    Hope to see you soon!

  8. How many does this serve and what is an approximate serving size?

  9. I love that you made this a casserole. I loved stuffed cabbage but don't have the patience to make it. This is perfect. Thanks for sharing on Thursdays Treasures.

  10. Sheena, I love cabbage rolls but am too lazy to make them.. this would be perfect. I found it on Blogger Showcase and will be pinning this and making it.

    1. Thanks so much for pinning, Marlys! I think you'd just love this recipe!

  11. Thank you so much for linking up at Top blogger showcase April 2013.

  12. This got something like 45 re-pins on pinterest. Yaye.....

  13. I did not like this recipe.. maybe I didn't cut the cabbage up small enough. After baking for over an hour the cabbage was still undercooked :(

    1. Sorry this recipe didn't work out for you. I do cut my cabbage into small pieces, and it turns out great for me every time. Thanks for stopping by!
