Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 small head of cabbage (Can also use large bag of Asian Salad from Costco)
6 all meat hot dogs
2 clove raw garlic
1 medium onion
1 dash of soy sauce
1 dash of Louisiana Hot Sauce
1 Tablespoon of Margarine (or butter)
A Couple shakes of parmesan cheese
4 green bell peppers.

SUBSTITUTIONS CAN BE MADE:

BUTTER FOR MARGERINE
REPLACE 6 TO 8 ITALIAN SAUSAGES FOR THE HOT DOGS. --CRUMBLE AND SAUTE'
BAG OF ASIAN SALAD OR COLE SLAW MIX FOR THE HEAD OF CABBAGE
2 CUPS OF RICE.

Directions:
Directions:
Put the first four ingredients in a food processor, meat grinder or mince by hand. (THIS WAS DADDY'S ORIGINAL RECIPE...BUT, I THINK IF YOU BUY A BAG OF ASIAN SALD OR COLE SLAW MIX, EVERYTHING WOULD ALREADY BE SLICED AND DICED AND YOU WON'T NEED A FOOD PROCESSOR FOR THE HOT DOGS.

Cover with water (OR if you are replacing the hot dogs with Italian Sausage, brown the crumbled Sausage, drain and stir fry the chopped cabbage with a little olive oil) until cooked. Drain any liquid off and add the next 4 ingredients.

Clean the green bell peppers and blanche in salted water.

Fill each pepper with the mixture. Put approximately 2" water in the bottom of a casserole dish. Top with more parmesan cheese and any cheese that you have. Cover and cook for approximately 30 minutes

OR: Updated Version --Can be put in a casserole dish --covered tightly with foil and baked in an over for approx. 30 minutes. (I would use the non stick alum. foil so the cheese doesn't stick to it.

I realize this recipe is all over the place as I was trying to "update" it. I have made stuffed peppers many, many times over the years and never used this recipe that was Grandpa Rakestraw's creation! He was always trying to make economical meals that were tasty! This filled the bill at the time so we entered it into a contest! He didn't win, but I always kept a copy of the letter we sent for the "HE COOKS" contest!

He was truly a really GREAT Cook!! His fried chicken and fried fish were unbeatable. Unfortunately, I don't have those recipes... He was always working on new, economical "different" recipes!
