    Got any good Gwumpkie/Golabki recipe's??

    My aunt and great grandma used to make Pirogie's and Gwumpkie's all the time for Christmas and Birthdays. But, now that I live in a different state, I am having a big craving

    I plan on asking my aunt how she did her last batch, because OMG, they were to die for!!!

    For all of you who DON'T know what Gwumpkies are, here's the only recipe I have found so far... http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1626...242192,00.html

    Thank you

    Lol, the link is a recipe for Gwumpkies

    They are both Polish recipes. Gwumpkies are ground beef and rice with spices wrapped in cabbage. Then baked in the oven with tomato sauce over it. Perogies could be many things, but essentially, they are ground beef, chicken, greens or just rice, in a Wonton pasta shell- halfed over and the edges crimped. Then deep fried.

    Ill see if I can get some pictures.....

    something else

    Edited... aparently what "I" know as Gwumpkies are more commonly known as "Golabki"

    O yeah, that stuff is good too

    But... I hate sour kraut. My family makes fun of me all the time that I will eat anything Polish, but will pick the sour kraut off of it all I guess your not truly polish if you don't eat the sour kraut

    Come on John, you have recipes galore. Got any for Gwumpkies??

    We call 'em galumpkis.

    I like the real ones better, but we're vegetarians at my house. The only recipe I have is a veggie one, and it's nothing compared to the real thing.

    Otherwise I'd give it to you for sure!

    I make mock cabbage rolls, the ingredients are about the same, but I add cheese, it's easier to make a pan of mock than stuffing the cabbage I think.
    I brown some hamburger with onion and some garlic and maybe some fennel seeds and some chopped hot pepper, while that's browning I boil some rice (I like brown or jasmine - whatever you like) then I chop some cabbage leaves while that's cooking and when the hamburger is brown but before the rice is done I put the hamburger in a baking dish, layer the rice over it, layer the chopped cabbage leaves over the rice, add some cans of tomato sauce and a jar or two of my Grandmas canned tomatos- - You need the moisture for the rice, then I throw some chunks of Velveeta on top (yes, velveeta - could I be any more trailer trash )
    and bake it until the leaves are soft and the rice is done and it isn't soupy.
    It takes a while to bake - plenty of time to get serious chores done in the winter.
    I swear it's delicious and even my picky boyfriend likes it. (He was raised on Kraft mac & cheese and weiner water soup - I'm exagerating a tad, but not much) He thinks anything green is probably poisonous
