Slow Cooker Cabbage Rolls
When I was young, my Father was the pastor of a foursquare church. The Church used to have potlucks each summer at Tualatin park, and I remember one family always brought cabbage rolls in a crock pot. I always enjoyed them, which shocked my parents, because I was a very picky eater. It got me wondering if my family would eat them. This recipe is very very simple, and the troops ate it up. I am happy to have another recipe that I can throw in the crock pot in the morning and come home to a done meal later that day. Since it is naturally gluten free, it makes it even better! They reheat very nicely too.
