 Contest-Winning Cajun Cabbage
Looking for a different treatment for cabbage? Try this spicy cheese-topped dish that I adapted from a friend's recipe. I added a little of this and that until it tasted the way I wanted. Not only do my husband and kids like it, I get rave reviews when I make it for company or church functions. -Bobbie Soileau, Opelousas, Louisiana
