I just made this because I was too lazy to make the cabbage rolls. It was great! I have used this recipe a couple times over the years but never reviewed it. I might try cooking the cabbage in the butter and onion instead of boiling as another reviewer mentioned next time to see what it does to the flavor. Thank you for posting!
I used a bag of coleslaw mix instead of shredding the cabbage myself, and I cooked it in the butter with the onion instead of boiling it. Also, I only had Italian breadcrumbs, so I used half those and half wheat germ. And per Steingrim's suggestion I did half beef, half pork. I left out the nutmeg because I don't like it, and I forgot the molasses. I had my doubts while it was baking after all the liberties I took, but it was a hit! My picky six year old even said it was the best meatloaf ever. So next time I make it, and there WILL be a next time, I'm going to follow the recipe a bit closer.
This was like a twist on a meatloaf - liked it better cold the next day.
The Finnish cookbook is one I had before we married, but I hadn't had this recipe before she made it. I like it with a combination of beef and pork, and it is good with the lingonberry preserves that we get at Ikea. A good Scandinavian recipe!
