Cabbage Burger Bake

1 head (about 2-lb Head) Cabbage
6 slices Bacon
1/2 cups Chopped Onion
1 cup Uncooked Rice
1 pound Ground Beef
1/2 pounds Ground Pork
1 teaspoon Salt
18 teaspoons Pepper
15 ounces, fluid Spaghetti Sauce, With Mushrooms
3 cups Water


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Quarter and shred cabbage. Spread in a buttered shallow 12-cup baking dish. Saute bacon in a large frying pan, just until fat starts to cook out; remove; drain and set aside for later. Stir onion and rice into bacon drippings in the frying pan. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat, until onion is soft and rice is lightly browned. Spoon over the cabbage in the baking dish. Brown beef and pork in the same frying pan. Spoon over the rice mixture in the baking dish; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat spaghetti sauce with the water to boiling in the same frying pan. Pour slowly over cabbage, so sauce will seep into layers underneath. Top with bacon slices; cover with foil. Bake for 50 minutes, or until rice and cabbage are tender. Uncover; bake for 10 minutes longer to crisp bacon.
