This is a wonderful example of American born cooks recreation of their Polish mothers or grandmothers cooking. My grandmother never used a written recipe, she measured with her hands, fingers and eyes. The amount of cabbage is my eyeball measurement of a head of chopped cabbage.

A wonderful presentation.This makes a very full pie. Carol this was just great. Since bacon was in the mixture I used all beef. I added 1/2 cup ketchup and 1 teaspoon crushed caraway seed to the mixture. Then brushed the top crust with buttermilk and sprinkled some caraway on top.I baked the first 15 minutes in a 425 degree oven then the last 30 minutes at 350 degrees.I did place the pie dish on a baking sheet which caught the drippings that bubbled over. Thanks from my Husband too!
