There isn’t anything better than a pan of stuffed cabbage on a cold  winter day! This recipe is one my mother and grandmother made often. The recipe that follows will make approximately 14 to 16 stuffed cabbages, which can be portioned into smaller batches and frozen for future enjoyment. – Chef Haberle
