Krautwickel or cabbage roll is a traditional German home cooked meal. You can add rice, but I like mine with potatoes. It’s basically the same recipe as my Frikadellen or German meat patties. The last time I had them in Germany when we were staying in
Dettelbach at a restaurant where the locals hang out.
