Okay, I get it your busy driving a truck all day and you do not have time to be a health nut. So we make it easy on our CDL Blog for truckers to find interesting ways to eat healthy. After all we all have to pass the DOT Physical. There is no way around the blood pressure test, and if you are lucky you can avoid a cpap mask.
When you are driving a commercial truck all day it can get hectic. A packed 53' foot trailer behind you pushing close to 70 mph for 10 hours can leave you with very few options when it comes time to eat. Either put up with the same old greasy cheese burger and fries (yes i love them too), or take a few minutes on a day off to prepare a great meal that can last a couple of days on the road with you.
This time for the healthy truck driver we prepared another crock pot recipe that is easy and great to eat.
Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
- 1/2 pound of jimmie dean sausage
- 1/2 pound of ground hamburger
- 1 sliced onion
- Tomato Sauce
- Salt and pepper
Mix hamburger, sausage and onion in a skillet until lightly browned. Prepare 1 cup of minute rice. Mix this in one pot and leave on low on the stove. While this is happening, clean and boil organic cabbage in large pot for a few minutes until soft. Don't burn your hands! Mix well and fill the cabbage leave full and roll over top.
Poor diced tomato and tomato sauce into the crock pot and turn it on high.
Roll cabbage stuffed with meat and rice mixture and place evenly across crackpot with two or three layers of rolled cabbage. Then poor a little extra tomato sauce over the top. They are not nice and pretty like the baked ones that use toothpicks to hold them together. The crock-pot version of stuffed cabbage kinda explodes, but do not worry it tastes even better! You will love it and it is much healthier than eating at the TRUCK STOP!
