This was an AWESOME recipe!! My husband and I love cabbage but our kids are not fans...so I was looking for a recipe that would appeal to them as well as us. I did make some changes as to what I had on hand and it was warm, cheesy, and just comfy! This will definitely be in my recipe box for years to come. Here are the changes I made: I used 2 heads of Cabbage, 1 tbsp Garlic Powder, 1 c. 2% Milk, 1 c. Whipping Cream, and 1 1/2 c. Swiss Cheese, shredded, and Panko breadcrumbs instead of crackers. All other ingredients were the same. It was so rich and yummy!!! When I have the regular ingredients I plan on trying it that way too. It was so pretty I just had to post pictures of it too!! Thank you Parsley for sharing this recipe! :)
Enjoyed the flavours, thanks for sharing
Our house gives this 4 1/2 stars. I added a 13 oz. can of chicken when I added the cabbage to the sauce, since it was going to be a main dish for us. I used panko breadcrumbs on the top, I also sauteed my garlic and onion in olive oil, and I used only 1 Tablespoon of butter for the top. We're not exactly "cabbage people," per se, but I would make this again if I had a head of cabbage to use up. It was pretty good for, you know, consisting mostly of cabbage. Hehe. I served it with sweet cornbread. Thanks for posting this!
