Cabbage Casserole

Even those who don't care for cabbage will enjoy it make this way. This tangy, creamy, comforting side dish goes exceptionally well with pork roast. —Ruby Williams, Bogalusa, Louisiana

    Made this the first time with 1 c mozzarella and 1 c cheddar. It was yummy but very cheesy so I question how healthy. Will try 1/2 the cheese next time for comparison.

    This recipe is a home run! Absolutely delicious. Instead of boiling the cabbage, I just sauteed it along with the butter and onion until it was tender and then added the rest of the ingredients, put in a baking dish and baked as indicated. We loved it and will definitely make again. I think you could use this with different vegetables broccoli or spinach. Scrumptious!Volunteer Field Editor

    YUMMY! I'd used 1/2 a large head of shredded cabbage and cooked several celery ribs with the cabbage until tender as a tip was given for keeping cabbage odor to a minimum! I'd used the onion, the cooked celery, a can of cream of chicken and mushroom soup and I used 2 cups of shredded 4-cheese Pizza blend, 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. ground pepper to taste. I'd used 1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs. I bakedat a lower oven temperature: 325o F. for 30 minutes and I'd just melted the Tbsp. butter and stirred in the bread crumbs, sprinkled over cabbage mixture before baking. I sampled casserole after it was baked and I LOVED the taste! delowenstein

    Made this for supper tonite & it is really good. I did make a few changes. I chopped up some celery in with the onion, used shredded cheddar cheese & about 2oz. of cream cheese. I only had a medium head of cabbage and a large head would have been better, but taste was great!

    This is great - even those who think they don't like cabbage will eat this. Made it as a side dish for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. It is now a regular on the table. It would also be good with bacon or ham in it.

    I made this recipe years ago, and also used sharp cheddar instead of the Velveeta. I remember feeling a little self conscious because it seems it was kind of stinky because of the cabbage (the way cabbage can be)...especially when opening the refrigerator (where the leftovers were) the next day. However, no one seemed to mind, because everyone, even my young children absolutely loved it. I just still laugh about my fear of stinkiness. I shall go forth and fear no more. I'm going to make this for Christmas this year! Glad I found the recipe again. Yummy! A cabbage lovers delight.

    This was so cheesy and sooo good. I found this recipe back in the 90's and I make it on holidays so I can keep it special!

    Way too cheesy!! I could not even tell that there was cabbage in the dish. That could be considered good if you don't like cabbage, but I do. Will try again and cut the cheese in half.
