Yay! It’s almost time for MFRW.Org’s Summer Boot Camp. To celebrate we’re sharing our favorite summer recipes.

When I was little I cooked a lot. One of my fave meals {usually made during the summer} was Cabbage Burgers. They are actually more like a stuffed bread roll though.

{Makes 5 dozen}


6 lb      hamburger {I use ground turkey}

          salt and pepper to taste

          garlic salt to taste

2 lg      onions {optional}

4 md      cabbage heads

Cabbage burgers

Doesn’t this look and sound yummy?


1 c      water, warm

1 Tbsp    active dry yeast

1 Tbsp    sugar

1 c      milk

1 tsp     salt

2 lg      eggs

1/4 c     oil or butter(melted)

3 c      flour


1.} To mix the bread dough, combine the ingredients in a large mixing bowl until they are well blended, then place it aside and let it rise.

2.} Brown the meat using salt and pepper and garlic salt to taste. Add in one of the onions {chopped and only if desired} Drain the meat and set it aside.

3.} While browning the meat, boil the cabbage for an hour or until it’s soft. Drain it and set it aside.

4.} Add cabbage and onion, to large bowl, add the burger on top of cabbage and mix. Season to taste with salt pepper and garlic salt.

5.} Roll out dough and cut them into squares large enough for a heaping 1/2 cup of the meat/cabbage mixture. Fold up the corners and pinch them to seal them. Place them seam side down on a large cookie sheet.

6.} Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, till nice and golden brown. Lightly brush tops of rolls with butter. Serve right from the oven and freeze the rest if there is any. {There usually isn’t here because the kids adore this meal. *winks*}

No kid wants their veggies plain, but if you can find a way to make them seem irresistible, kids will eat them up quick!

Another trick I used {mainly for broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts} is to drown the veggies in cheese sauce. I love cheese, so any cheesy veggie is an instant hit.

I also like to cook my spinach in eggs {similar to an omelet}. The kids snatch that up quick too!.

So, parents, how do you get your kids to eat their veggies?
