Reviews forScalloped Cabbage Casserole
"easy to throw together; only change was I used shredded cheddar. Awesome way to use up cabbage in a new way-we really liked this. I'll be making again. Herbs and breadcrumbs on top are a must."
"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."
"In response to comment posted Nov. 27, 2012, you might try *halving* recipe, so you can enjoy it more often!"
"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."
"Even my finicky 87 year old mother loved this one--quite an accomplishment for any recipe that was not one of her own!"
"My family liked this recipe. It was nice to have something different for a side dish besides potatoes."
"I used colby and jack cheese instead of the american cheese and left out the carrots...it was great. This is a great way to fix cabbage!"
