Mostly up north where I grew up they are called Sarmas AKA cabbage rolls or pigs in the blanket.

We always thought pigs in blanket were hot dog in crescent roll dough baked.

Heres the recipe I use

6 pounds of ground ham and pork butt  50/50  Some people also use hamburger

1 1/2 cups of white rice

Garlic  Salt  Pepper or any other spices to taste

Sour cabbage heads  A little hard to find in Minneapolis but Bobs produce has them

Have heard of people freezing a cabbage head and thawing it out to get the leaves limp and maybe add sour kraut for more flavor.

Another twist is some people add tomato juice or tomato sauce for a little different flavor

I use 20 pounds of meat and 3 sour heads to make 75-80 of them

That's what I thought, too. My wife used to make those and called 'em cabbage rolls.....and usually put a thick tomato paste with basil and spices over them. No matter what ya call 'em, they're good!

Oh man, Sarma; one of my favorite meals of all-time!  I've never ventured to try it in my own kitchen - mostly because my wife and kids would never stop complaining about the beautiful sweat-sock like odor that only true lovers of that kind of cuisine can appreciate.  And I'd be the only one who eats it--so maybe I'll have to down-size the recipe and add it to the long list of "Things to make when the wife and kids aren't home."  Unfortunately (for my stomach, at least) that's a rare thing and that list is getting LONG!

Trying a new recipe. Scratch chocolate cake with caramel filling.  Will have chocolate frosting.  Still need to slice the layers.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
