Cabbage Burger Bake

This recipe can be baked or cooked on the stovetop.  This recipe makes enough for the whole family and enough for leftover the next day! The pictures you see are what this recipe looks like if you make it on the stove. For supper that evening I also made Crispy Breaded Asparagus.
