I have a half a med sized cabbage I need to use. What can I make besides cole slaw?

  1. Bierocks. This recipe is close to what I make.

    For a quickie dinner, you can use frozen dough or even refrigerated rolls.
    The way I learned to serve them was with equal parts ketchup and yellow mustard mixed together.

      Didn't know there were any other Bierocks fans round these parts.
      Here's one from Kansas:

        Yep, learned that one in Michigan City Indiana, back in the 80s.

    2. Quarter it into wedges, drizzle with EVOO, roast until golden brown on the edges, garnish with sea salt. Enjoy with fork.

        My favorite way to eat cabbage.

        Or thinly sliced and slowly sautéed with lots of shallots and garlic

        It's a shame I'm the only (willing) cabbage eater in the house

      2. I like it sautéed w/scallions, bacon, mushrooms, sauerkraut, a little vinegar, & optionally, diced apple.

        1. Halushki with egg noodles, bacon, onion.

            Haluski, you will not be sorry. Google will return recipes.

          2. Cut it in half
            Rub it with butter and salt.
            Wrap it in good smoked bacon
            Seal in separate tin foil pouches.
            Toss pouches onto a 350 degree grill for about 45 minutes
            Serve and eat.
