Sausage cabbage rolls are warm, comforting, and full of wonderful flavor. They are a one-pot wonder that will make getting dinner on the table easier than you think.

One-pot cabbage casserole

You only have to use one pot to make cabbage rolls which make fewer dishes. I love easy dinner ideas like this. I rolled the cabbage, but you don’t even have to do that. You can layer it with the meat in between like lasagna and save even more time getting dinner ready.

You can make cabbage rolls with any meat, beef, lamb, pork, or really anything. I chose sausage because it’s so flavorful already.

Tomato free cabbage rolls

I am allergic to nightshades, so I had to come up with a way to make them that didn’t involve tomatoes. These were so flavorful and robust that I never missed the tomato part of the sauce. I hope you will try them, with or without tomatoes, whatever is best for you and your family.

Greek cabbage rolls

For a Greek flavor, you would use beef or lamb, and herbs like dill, mint, and parsley. Lebanese stuffed cabbage rolls call for cinnamon. They also both use rice.

German stuffed cabbage rolls

To make the cabbage rolls German, use breadcrumbs instead of rice. They usually call for beef or pork for the meat. For seasoning, there is paprika and black pepper. Whatever style of rolls you make; they all call for tomato. So, mine are different than any of these.
