Thank you Lois for posting my 82 year old mother's recipe! She made this economical (in other words cheap) dish many times over the years - its still one of my dad's favourite meals and reminds me of "home". Thanx again!

LoisM, this is exactly how I cook my cottage roll too! I also add the potatoes (small red ones or larger ones cut into quarters) and chunks of turnip during the last 15 minutes of cooking while the roast is in the pan; then I add the cabbage when I glaze the cottage roll in the oven @350 degrees. This is one of my DH's favourite dinners. It is a great meal for a cool fall day!!
