Turkey Stuffed Cabbage with Spicy Cherry Sauce

From: Candace McMenamin, Lexington, SC

Serves: 6


Manischewitz® Cooking Spray
1 1/2 pounds kosher ground turkey
1/2 cup Manischewitz® Matzo Meal
1 large egg, lightly beaten
3/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 large head green cabbage
1 jar cherry preserves
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 (12 ounce) bottle chili sauce
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a shallow 5-quart casserole dish with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine ground turkey, matzo meal, egg, poultry seasoning, allspice, salt, and pepper. Set aside until needed.

Separate the leaves from the cabbage. Cut away the thickest part of the stem and discard. Place a heaping 1/3 cup of the turkey filling in the center of each cabbage leaf. Fold the sides of the leaf over the filling, overlapping them slightly, and then starting at the stem end, roll up the leaf into a bundle. Place each roll into prepared casserole dish. (Save leftover cabbage for another use.)

In a small saucepan, combine preserves, raisins, brown sugar, chili sauce, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking until sugar has dissolved. Pour evenly over cabbage bundles. Cover with foil and bake 1 hour or until cooked thoroughly.
