Cabbage as comfort food? That's what this felt like! I'm dieting and can't combine my proteins with carbs, so I completely left out the crust. I shredded the cabbage into large confetti-sized pieces, and just gave it a quick boil (2 minutes) before draining. After that I just followed the directions, pouring the cabbage mixture into a shallow casserole dish lined with parchment paper. It came out very custardy, and was delicious. I grew up with Eastern European parents, and I'm a big fan of caraway, so this was typical comfort food for me. I had this with some smoked mackerel on the side, and it was a yummy, Old Country supper.

Delicious, very tasty. This is one of my favorite ways to eat cabbage now. I've made it a few times now for different guests, and everybody seems to enjoy it. The only changes I made to the recipe was: 1) I used a pre-made refrigerated pie crust (the kind you simply unroll into the dish); 2) instead of using two large eggs + one egg yolk I simply used three whole large eggs; and 3) I used half & half instead of heavy cream. It comes out perfectly delicious for me every time.
