This past weekend, I attended the Build Your Blog Conference right here in Salt Lake City. It was 2 full days of blog education, classes, inspiring speakers and lots of bloggers. I reconnected with old friends and made new ones. I will be posting about my experience this week since I’m so tired right now and my brain is on overload with all the information I soaked in. So if you’ve been wondering why no recipes this past weekend, that’s why. But, I will not leaving you hanging. As I do some meal planning for the upcoming week, I’m looking for some family pleasing meals and I’m sure you are too. I’m hoping this Chicken Sausage Cabbage Rolls will be one you’ll want to try.
Just this week, I was watching a show on PBS with a lady who was showing the host her cabbage rolls. I don’t remember where she was from, but she had an eastern European accent and she was a doll! Probably a lady in her 70’s, but so adorable with the host I wanted to reach through the TV and give her a big hug. I had already made this dish using chicken sausage instead of her beef and I think you’ll find it pretty darn good.
Keep in mind while making these that the number of cabbage rolls you finish up with will vary based on the size of the cabbage leafs you have. Here in Utah, we don’t seem to get giant cabbages in the grocery store so my leafs were not big at all. The size and number of the rolls will depend on that. And, if you have small leaves, you can always double wrap them to keep the meat inside.
