* Ingredients :

° 2 cabbage heads
° 2 pounds ground beef (or veal/beef/pork mix)
° 3 cups cooked rice
° 1 egg
° 1 teaspoon garlic
° 1 tablespoon parsley
° 2 slices diced onion
° 1-15 oz. can tomato sauce
° 1-28 oz. can mashed tomatoes
° 1/4 cup tomato sauce (with meat)
° salt and pepper as needed

* Preparation : 

Put the head of cabbage in a pot of boiling water, and peel the cabbage leaves one by one.

Cut the rough part off the end of the cabbage leaf with a sharp knife.

Mix all ingredients together except for a 15-ounce can of tomato puree and ketchup and place a small amount (sausage size) on a cabbage sheet, roll like fajita and place seam side down in a casserole dish.  I put tomato sauce and cabbage leaves or 2 on the bottom of the casserole so the halopki don't burn.

Pour the mashed tomatoes over the Halupkys.

Cover and bake for about 75 minutes at 375°C.

Turn the oven to 325 degrees and bake for another 90 minutes, until the cabbage is tender. Soak every hour.
Served with tomato sauce.

Enjoy !
