Linda I made your cabbage rolls for our Easter dinner along side a very large ham. I'm not a fan of allspice so I reduce the amount, I doubled the recipe because we were serving quite a lot of people. Everyone had a roll and said that they were delicious (including myself!), so I am giving your recipe a big fat 5 stars! Thank you Linda!

My sister made up a batch of these and brought them to my house for us for lunch. They are so delicious and my family all loved them. The pan was empty and we all had full bellies and a smile! I will be making these on my own and enjoying them again and again and my daughters now have the recipe too!

These are easy to get together and great for get togethers. Next time I will not use the allspice, personal preference.

These are quite easy to make and taste good. The only change I made was broil them for a couple of minutes at the end of the cook time, just because I like the "grilled" taste of cabbage. Made for the Healthy Recipe Tag game.
