Turkey Cabbage rolls

Left over time again folks.

2 cups shredded, or cubed, cooked turkey
10 fresh cabbage leaves
1 can Chopped Tomatoes (UNdrained)
1/s cup Rice
1 med Onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup Cheese, shredded (your choice, but yellows & soft whites work best)
Garlic, Salt, & Pepper to taste
1/2 cup Water

Pre-heat oven to 350F. Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Put in cabbage leaves & boil 2-3 minutes. Drain well.

Mix turkey, rice, tomatoes, cheese & spices in a large bowl. Add water & stir to combine. Spoon 2Tbs turkey mix into each cabbage leaf, tuck sides in & fold top and bottom over (like a burrito). Place in baking dish. Top with remaining turkey mix, & shredded cheese if desired. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until cabbage is tender.

An interesting take on Polish style Cabbage Rolls. Feel free to add more tomatoes, or Ro-Tel but remember not to drain them. The rice will need the liquid to cook in the oven.
