Cabbage Roll Casserole

Total Time

This was in a local school cookbook, it is super easy and as good as the "hard work" cabbage rolls.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown meat and onion then stir the tomato soup and the rice, salt and pepper.
  2. Layer half the cabbage in a greased 9x13 inch dish, cover with 1/2 the hamburger mixture, then layer the remainder of the cabbage and rest of the hamburger mixture. (Could use only 1 layer of hamburger between cabbage).
  3. Bake covered at 350 for 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Sometimes I sprinkle the top with some grated cheddar cheese and pop back in the oven 5 min until melted.

This is exactly how I make this, except that I only mix 1/2 a can of the tomato soup into the rice mixture. Then I pour the rest of the tomato soup on in layers like a sauce. I also only do one layer of meat stuff in the middle and end w/ cabbage on top and pour a whole can of tomato soup over the top. I like it to have some sauciness to it, because just like traditional cabbage rolls, we always serve this with mashed potatoes and the sauce is amazing over it! I make this and freeze it quite often. When freezing, I pre-cook the rice and saute the cabbage so that it's mostly cooked. I let it thaw in the fridge overnight and put it in the oven and yumm. Oh, you can also do this in the crockpot :)

Easy and good for you. Only problem I had was in READING the timing on the recipe carefully enough. I got it all together and ready to stick in the oven and THEN saw the hour and a half! One call to the Dominos man, and we had the Casserole the next day.

Although I don't make it quite this way, it is similar and very good. I add a can of petite diced tomatoes to the cooked hamburger/onion mixture and 1 cup of rice that is not cooked. Various spices that I like, and I use tomato sauce, sweetened just a bit with some sugar that is poured over the layered mixture. I cook the casserole in an electric pressure cooker for approximately 20 minutes after it comes to pressure.
