I've taken this dish to many church dinners and receive good comments every time. If your children won't eat cabbage, try making this recipe for them (but don't tell them what's in it!).

  • 2 large carrots, shredded
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded process American cheese
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme


  • 1. Place 1 in. of water, cabbage and carrots in a large skillet; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until crisp-tender.

"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."

"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!"
