    I'm making what I call that pigs in a blanket soup that I found in the recipe thread here a while back posted by:

    2 cans beef stock
    1 can tomatos crushed
    1/2 head of chopped cabbage
    salt/pepper.

    At the last I added another cup of water and it still turned out really good. I was going for something low carb.

    just have to ask......about the name. "Pigs in a blanket"? Explain to me how it fits, other than you just like the name.

    Because it tastes like the "pigs in a blanket" that a friend of the family used to make when I was a kid. Meat and tomato with other stuff wrapped and cooked in cabbage.

    That's what our family called cabbage rolls -- either "pigs in a blanket," or the Polish name "gołumbki."
    (Then I moved out here, and what people called "pigs in a blanket" were the '50s housewifey canned little hot dogs wrapped in Pillsbury crescent roll dough.)

    I forgot all about that one. I'll have to make that again! and you're right about the cabbage rolls taste lol

    I'm with Ellen on the name being "cabbage rolls". We sell them at the restaurant on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Home made of course!

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    For me as a kid, "pigs in a blanket" = cocktail hot dogs in crescent rolls. And "halupki" (Slovak descent here, different spelling) = cabbage rolls. Both were equally unappetizing and still are. Oddly enough, the locally famous tv Cajun chef used to do Slavic-like cabbage rolls but with Rotel in the mix and used toothpicks to secure the rolls. My grandmother was, at the time, mortified that he didn't know how to properly fold the cabbage to make a tight roll absent the toothpicks.

    I have to disagree, phoneGrrl, pigs in a blanket, cabbage rolls, stuffed cabbage, whatever you want to call them, are delicious! I like to make "pretend" (or deconstructed if you want to be fancy)stuffed cabbage in the crockpot. So yummy when it's cold outside.
