Amish Cabbage & Potato Casserole

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Stacky5

This recipe intrigued me because I'm drawn to Amish cooking. Although I really liked it just as written (it's tasty comfort food), I believe it has the potential to be tweaked by just the right Zaar chef to make it a winner in the inexpensive-yet-delicious category (if there is one)...So have at it, Zaar chefs!!! :)

I saw this recipe this morning and knew it was for me! The German in me loves this kind of comfort food. One thing I wanted to add is that a 2-quart baking dish was not enough. It was mounded pretty good when I put it in the oven. I know that cabbage shrinks as it cooks but I think I will start with a bigger dish to begin with next time. I followed the recipe to the letter with the exception of adding a couple of fresh carrots from the garden and I used evaporated milk instead of whole. I learned from a friend that if you want the creaminess and not all the fat, evaporated milk is a great substitute. I always use evaporated milk in my mashed potatoes now.
