How to Freeze Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

By LeafTV Editor

Cabbage rolls consist of cooked cabbage leaves that are wrapped around a filling. The filling can consist of meat, grains and vegetables, depending on the recipe. Once the cabbage rolls are prepared, they are steamed, baked or simmered. Cabbage rolls freeze best when uncooked because the freezer can alter the taste and texture. Once the frozen cabbage rolls have been defrosted, simply cook them using your preferred method.

How To Freeze Stuffed Cabbage Rolls


Cover a large baking pan with freezer paper. Prepare the cabbage rolls but do not cook them.

Place the cabbage rolls on the baking pan. Space the rolls apart so that they do not touch each other.

Place the baking pan in the freezer.

Remove the cabbage rolls from the freezer once they are frozen.

Fill a freezer bag or container with the cabbage rolls. Remove as much air as possible from the freezer bag to prevent freezer burn.

Write the date and contents on the freezer bag or container. Freeze the cabbage rolls for up to 1 month.

Defrost the cabbage rolls overnight in the refrigerator. Once defrosted, they are ready to cook.
