Probably not - because they and the holidays have kept me running frantic.
BASTING GLAZE: (NOTE - I'M SORT OF IN LOVE WITH SAUCE OF ANY KIND, SO I DOUBLED THIS PART)
- 4 bacon slices, chopped
- 1/3 cup dark corn syrup (didn't have it so used a mixture of sugar in the raw, molasses and the Tbsp or so of light cs that I had left over from christmas)
- 3 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 1/2 tablespoons water
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
To prepare cabbage rolls, core cabbage using a serrated knife. Place cabbage in baking dish or casserole; add 2 tablespoons water. Loosely cover if possible. Microwave at high 7-8 minutes. Cover and let stand 15 minutes. Discard any tough dark green leaves. Remove 8 light-colored cabbage leaves. Cut off raised portion of the main vein of each leaf, and set leaves aside. Finely chop enough remaining cabbage to measure 1/2 cup, and set aside. Coarsely chop enough remaining cabbage to measure 2 cups; arrange in bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with slivered onion.
Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add rice; reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 8 minutes. Drain well.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine 1/2 cup finely chopped cabbage, rice, apple, and the next 7 ingredients (apple through egg). Crumble turkey over mixture; stir just until blended. Place about 1/2 cup turkey mixture in center of each cabbage leaf. Fold in edges of leaves, and roll up; place cabbage rolls on top of coarsely chopped cabbage. Cut several 1/4-inch-deep slits across top of each roll. Pour 1/4 cup water over rolls. Cover with foil, and bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
To prepare basting glaze, cook the bacon in a small saucepan over medium heat for 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from heat. Remove bacon from pan; discard bacon drippings. Return bacon to pan; stir in corn syrup and remaining ingredients. Uncover cabbage rolls; spoon one-third basting glaze over cabbage rolls. Bake, uncovered, 1 hour, basting with basting glaze every 20 minutes. Spoon about 1/4 cup remaining cabbage on each of 8 plates; top each with 1 cabbage roll.
