How to make easy baked stuffed cabbage rolls with ground turkey, peppers, and rice!
When I first started my YouTube journey, I uploaded a recipe for stuffed cabbage rolls. I didn’t make a traditional hungarian or polish stuffed cabbage roll, I just kept it really simple like I usually do. Well, I still make my cabbage rolls with the same ingredients. However, I prepare the rolls differently.
