My Croatian mother-in-law spoke often of the “bacon dumplings” her mother made but never passed on the recipe. Today, Google provides a handful of variations, poached and fried. I guessed on this one that sounded like her description. Have no idea if this is close to the family recipe, but it was delicious in a vegetable soup: vegetable broth, onion, potato, carrot, rutabega.

Much like noodle kugel, minus the bacon. In Austria and Germany this is called Schinken-Käse-Nudel Auflauf.

I made a vegetarian red cabbage and beet borscht tonight, using up the last veg from my garden (beet greens, string beans, Swiss chard) as well as some pickled beets.
I don’t really use a recipe, this is close to what I usually make.

Also made sweet and sour red cabbage, with onion, cranraspberry juice, pear, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, vinegar and sugar, adding a little cornstarch at the end.

This borscht calls for dill, cumin, coriander and nigella seeds.

Ate this Stuffed Cabbage & polenta dish at a wine estate in The Cartighenian Mountain Pass between Brasov and Transylvania, Romania. Was wonderful.

Stuffed cabbage and polenta is a combination I hadn’t thought of. My grandmother always served mashed potatoes with stuffed cabbage. It’s interesting to learn about different versions of traditional dishes!

I’ve never seen battered cabbage rolls.
Is that what I’m seeing?

I think the leaf just looks yellow.

Here’s a recipe for sarmale with mamaliga

Romania has a “true polenta” culture, like many parts of Italy.

An overlooked country !! Truly a jewel gastronomically & enologically and a “Castle Route” that is totally breathtakingly amazing.

Have a lovely afternoon.

The idea of deep fried cabbage rolls actually sounds pretty tasty to me. :slight_smile:

Barca, yes, I have a Romanian uncle and 5 half Romanian cousins. They love mamaliga (Romanian polenta)

Transylvania is known for its delicious food.

I like mititei /cevapi. https://www.thebossykitchen.com/mititei-romanian-grilled-sausages-recipe/
