  • 1 cup onion – cut up (1/2 a large)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (fresh or from a jar)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons Red Cooking Wine (optional use water and 1/2 teaspoon salt if you don't want to use wine)
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 1 can can cream of celery soup ( any cream soup will work)


  • Brown hamburger and drain any grease. Set aside
  • Place butter, wine, garlic, cabbage and onion in a skillet and saute until tender. About 15 minutes.
  • Add soup and hamburger and heat thoroughly.
  • Spray a 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish. Place ½ the crescent rolls in bottom as a crust
  • Put hamburger/cabbage mixture over top (filling the pan full), cover with cheese and put other ½ of crescent rolls as a top crust.
