"I gave it four because I need more substance in my food. I think this would be amazing with a little cooked shredded chicken as a layer. It was much better than I thought it would be. I agree it would be nice to halve it as my two person family is not going to finish this in one go. In future I would smother the top in bread crumbs, and I used cheddar which I would do again."

"We really enjoyed this dish, but we both thought the leftovers tasted rather odd. Since there are just two of us, I would only make this when I'm having guests."

"I used colby and jack cheese instead of the american cheese and left out the was great. This is a great way to fix cabbage!"
