Hi Judy, I just made the cabbage roll casserole again and I think I may have overdone the spice measurements in my written recipe - specifically the cinnamon & cloves. Change to 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/8th -1/4 cloves (or of course to taste). Cloves are lovely but too much cloves is never a good thing. The pinch of nutmeg stays. I love nutmeg and I prefer freshly ground. If you'd like the casserole to be more tomato-ey I would stir in a small can of tomato sauce along with the diced tomatoes. Hope your first casserole wasn't too clove- ish. Wink.
Susan, thanks for the note. To tell you the truth, I didn't use the cloves at all, as I realized at the last minute I didn't have any! Next time I will put a pinch in to see what the difference is. I often experiment a bit with recipes anyway. I cut back a bit on the cinnamon too, as I have found in general that I prefer a bit less of it in savory dishes. The recipe is great comfort food... I love to have it ready so I can just come home and heat it up. So, not too clove-ish... it was just right!
hey, this is off topic, but so much more intriguing than the post...lol.Or are those 2 knuckleheads related to cabbage rolls?!
