Pigs In The Straw (Lazy Piggies)

2-3 Pounds Hamburger

2-3 eggs

1-2 cups Cooked Rice

1 small chopped Onion or 1 TB Onion Powder

2 cloves Garlic minced

Salt and Pepper to taste

Thyme and any other herb you like to taste.

(2) 14 Oz cans diced tomatoes or more if you like.

Onion chopped large or onion powder sprinkled on top.

Cut head of cabbage into quarters. Remove outer leaves (may be dirty) and remove core from each. Slice in 1/2" to 1 " slices and break apart into a dutch oven. Add a couple cups of water and let come to a boil. Turn down and steam 5 to 10 minutes and drain.

Meanwhile mix the hamburger, onion, garlic, eggs, cooked rice, and seasoning. Set aside.

Place half the cabbage on the bottom of a greased baking dish. Then form the meat mixture into ovals and place on cabbage. I use a dry measuring cup to keep them the same size- usually 1/3 cup. When finished place the rest of the cabbage on top and cover evenly with diced tomatoes and chopped onion too if you wish. Cover dish with aluminum foil.

Bake in a 350-375 degree oven for 1 and 1/2 hours.
