bunte wirsingschichten / colorful layers of savoy cabbage

you might know by now that i like to make up my own recipes. maybe i take other recipes as an inspiration, but usually i go totally bananas and invent my own food. i am definitely not a copycat and i always (at least i try to) backlink when i make a wonderful dish of a fellow blogger. of course, we influence and inspire eachother and while i think this is a big plus there are definitely some disturbing things going on here on the net, especially if someone steals stuff and wants to make money off of it. as far as i am concerned i usually try to *steal* my mamas recipes (okay, i experiment with family heirlooms...) and give them my own twist. or i make stuff that my mama would never ever make. dishes with cabbage for example. why stick to the old dull stuffed cabbage? here's what i decided to create: colorful layers of savoy cabbage with minced meat and other veggies.

500 g minced meat
1 onion
1 clove of garlic
1 egg
breadcrumbs
250 g savoy cabbage
1 carrot
1 bell pepper
4 slices of gouda

01 chop onion and garlic, roast in a pan and put aside to cool
02 remove stalk of the cabbage and blanch
03 finely chop or grate carrot and bell pepper
04 add fried onion and garlic to the minced meat
05 add one egg and intensely mix the meat
06 add breadcrumbs until you get a hamburger-like consistency. season to taste.
07 butter a casserole and lay out first layer of cabbage
08 put a layer of meat on top
09 add a layer of the grated carrot
10 add a layer of the finely chopped bell pepper
11 add a layer of gouda cheese
12 cover with a layer of cabbage
13 put a layer of meat on top
14 add a layer of the grated carrot
15 add a layer of the finely chopped bell pepper
16 add a layer of gouda cheese
17 cover with a layer of cabbage
18 do you get the picture? continue to make the layers until your casserole is filled. your last layer should be a layer of cabbage
19 bake for at least one hour on medium heat (180-200°c)

while some of my inventions are not really a feast for the eye (as i mostly throw every ingredient in a pan and mash it up real good) this thing turned out really pretty. hey, and yummie! do i have to mention that?

That does look very pretty... I think you should consider a career in photography :-) Your photos come out so professional...

thank you for your kind words ... but a career in fotography? i don't know about that. i'd much rather choose a career in eating, eating and more eating :)

That's a wonderful recipe - thank you! I make meatballs wrapped in cabbage leaves but sometimes the leaves brown too much in the oven. This will be a nice way to keep them soft.
