Nancy, can you tell me what happened to Judy in AK? I loved her recipes and kept them in a separate file. Thank you and I really appreciate your site. Wish I had some original recipes to input but thank all those cooks who do contribute.
Pat in MO

I was given a muffin top pan for a gift. Does anyone know of recipes for it. Can you use a regular cake recipe or is there a special recipe?
Thank you in advance for information on this.

Here are two recipes for Gary, who wanted stuffed cabbage recipes that used sauerkraut. The second recipe was given to me by someone of Hungarian descent many years ago.

Pennsylvania Dutch Stuffed Cabbage Rolls Recipe

12 to 14 lg. cabbage leaves
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef, ground pork or a combination of both
2 eggs
1 lg. onion, chopped
1 c. rice- not instant
1 family size can tomato soup- I think it is 23.2 ounces
Salt, pepper to taste
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 lg. can sauerkraut
1 qt. canned diced tomatoes
1 tbsp. sugar- optional
2 apples, sliced

Soften cabbage leaves in boiling water until limp.
Mix meat, eggs, onion, rice, cumin, Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper.

Put 1/2 cup (approximately) of mixture onto a cabbage leaf and make a roll and fasten with toothpicks, creating 12 to 14 rolls.

Rinse sauerkraut and place in a greased pan at least 3-5 inches deep. Slice apples over sauerkraut.
Lay cabbage rolls over sauerkraut.

Blend tomatoes into puree, mix with the tomato soup and 1/2 can water until blended.

Pour over cabbage rolls and kraut. Cover and bake at 325 degrees for 2 hours. Check center of one roll for doneness of meat mixture.

Hungarian Stuffed Cabbage Rolls Recipe

2 tbsp. freshly lard -or- oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
1 cup seeded and finely chopped anaheim, peppers -or-
unseeded chopped cubanelle peppers
1/2 cup long-grain rice
2-1/2 cups chicken stock
1 tbsp. Hungarian paprika
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 large head cabbage
1 (24 oz.) jar sauerkraut, drained
1 lb. finely ground pork
1 egg
1/2 lb. smoked pork butt, sliced
paprika gravy (see below)

Saute the garlic, onion and peppers in the lard or oil until tender. Add the rice, 1 cup of chicken stock, paprika, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool. Core the cabbage and carefully pull the leaves off, keeping them as whole as possible.

Blanch the leaves in a large pot of salted water until pliable, about 2 minutes. Drain and allow to cool. This should be done in a couple of batches. Cut out the tough white base of each leaf. In a Dutch oven, spread 2 cups of the drained sauerkraut in the bottom of the pot; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the ground pork with the cooled rice mixture, egg, salt and pepper. Mix very well. Spread out a cabbage leaf on the countertop and roll up into a cylinder, folding in the sides as you roll.

Continue with the rest of the leaves; it may be necessary to piece together a couple of leaves to make a nice roll. Arrange the rolls on the bed of sauerkraut in the pot. Place the pork slices atop the rolls and spread the remaining 1 cup of sauerkraut over all. Pour in the remaining 1-1/2 cups of chicken stock. It should just cover the cabbage rolls. If not, add more stock. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 hour, 15 minutes.

This dish may be served with the paprika gravy (see below) on the side.


Paprika Gravy Recipe

1 tablespoon lard, freshly -or- oil
1-1/2 tablespoons Hungarian paprika, or more to taste
1 garlic clove, peeled, chopped
1 cup anaheim green peppers, seeded, chopped -or-
1 cup cubanelle peppers, chopped
1 cup yellow onion, peeled, chopped
1/2 cup tomatoes, ripe, chopped
1 teaspoon chicken base
6 cups beef stock
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup all-purpose flour

Heat a 5 qt. heavy stove-top casserole and add the lard and paprika.

Cook over medium heat for a moment and then add the garlic, green pepper, onion, and tomatoes. Simmer for a few minutes until all is tender. Add the chicken base and Beef Stock, along with the salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

In a metal bowl, mix the sour cream and flour together. Mix it well with a wire whip as you do not want lumps. Add a cup of the gravy. Remove and strain the gravy; discard the solids, or lumps, if you have any.

Here are two recipes for Granny. I hope she and her grandkids enjoy them, if they try them. I am sure the first recipe is from a previous newsletter, but I no longer know who shared it or when it appeared. The second was in a 6/16 newsletter and shared by Nana OH.

Frozen Strawberry Pops Recipe

8 large ripe strawberries, hulled and cut into quarters
2/3 cup frozen pineapple juice concentrate, slightly thawed
2 (8-ounce) cans sugar-free lemon-lime soda

Place the strawberries in a food processor or blender. Add the pineapple juice concentrate and pulse until fairly smooth. (If you don't have a food process or a blender, you can do this with a handmixer.)
Stir in the sugar-free soda until well blended.
Pour mixture into eight 6-ounce paper cups. Freeze for 30 minutes, then stick a clean wooden stick into the
middle of each pop.
Freeze overnight. To serve, let stand at room temperature just until you can peel off the paper cup. Eat at once.

Pimento Macaroni and Cheese Recipes

6 slices bacon
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups half-and-half
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
1 (4 oz) jar pimentos, diced, drained
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 lb. small penne pasta or macaroni, cooked, drained and kept warm
3 cups shredded smoked cheddar
3 cups shredded parmesan

Preheat the broiler. Spray five 1-cup ramekins with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large Dutch oven, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove from the Dutch oven and drain on paper towels. Reserve 1/4 cup bacon drippings in the Dutch oven, and discard any remaining drippings. Crumble the bacon set aside.

Add the butter to the drippings, and heat over medium-high heat until the butter melts. Whisk in the flour, whisking until smooth. Whisk in the half-and-half, and cook until the mixture is thickened and smooth, whisking constantly.

Add the ground red pepper. Stir in the cream cheese and let melt. Add the pimentos and bacon. Season with the salt and pepper. Add 2 cups smoked Cheddar and 2 cups Parmesan.

Spoon the pasta mixture evenly into the prepared ramekins. Top with the remaining 1 cup Cheddar and 1 cup Parmesan. Broil until cheese is lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
