Cabbage Rolls Recipe

It's #Croctober and several bloggers are joining together to share crockpot recipes that will warm up your family as the chill comes on and inspire your menu planning!

The original recipe I shared back in 2013, and it is one of my most popular searched out recipes! I am resharing it again here, in a new recipe card format! Much easier to view and print! 

Jan's Tips: It  has that wonderful traditional cabbage roll taste and does not need changing, however My husband is diabetic and the tomato soup and ketchup has a bit too much sugar for him, so I substitute out my own homemade marinara sauce to replace the soup and ketchup.  (I still add water, but reduce it by about 14 oz. since my marinara sauce is more water based than the condensed soup.) 

Okay Okay.. confessional: I also do half ground beef, half  sausage!.

This makes a TON! We are empty nesters now so I  cut it in half and we had enough for dinner plus lunch for both of us the next day.

Hope you enjoy it!
