Loved it ! A very tasty recipe that went well with the mashed potato and Swedish meatballs this evening. My Cheddar cheese is imported from the UK and I have no idea if it's sharp or not.. but its tasty and gives a good flavour to the cabbage, as does the cayenne. I didn't top mine with breadcrumbs because I only made this a little last moment and was ready to dish up the rest of the meal once the sauce was made. Please see my rating system, a wonderful 4 stars for a great way to jazz up cabbage. Thanks!
