In saucepan of lightly salted water, boil potatoes until tender, about 18 minutes; drain and return to pot. Cook over low heat until potatoes are dry, about 1 minute. Remove from heat. Mash with sour cream until smooth.

Meanwhile, in small skillet, fry bacon over medium heat until just beginning to brown, about 3 minutes. Add onions and salt ; fry, stirring often, until golden, 12 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large pot, bring 1 inch (2.5 cm) salted water to boil over high heat. Separate at least 16 leaves from cabbage (reserve inner small leaves for another use). Add to water; cover and steam until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water; drain well. Cut v-shaped notch at base of each leaf to remove thick core.

Fold bacon mixture, cheese, half of the parsley and pinch of the pepper into potato mixture. Place about 1/4 cup filling at base of each leaf and roll up. Arrange rolls in single layer in lightly greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish. Sprinkle with butter and remaining pepper. Cover with foil. Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake until tops are light golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining parsley.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
