Hearty, stick-to-the-ribs cabbage casserole. This goes great with pork chops or ham, although I could make a meal of just this alone. Whenever I make cornbread, I usually double the recipe so I have enough left to make this the next day.

I really liked the combo of cornbread and cabbage. My picky husband ate some also. I think next time I would add just a bit more onions and cheese just to experiment and a bit of veggie broth might be okay because it was a tad dry, especially the next day. Still good though.
This was brilliant! My sister and I usually hate cabbage and try to find any excuse not to eat it, but we both loved this. I halved the recipe and it made 3 generous portions. Next time will definately serve it with Quorn sausages for a heartier meal.
I didn't have the bell pepper on hand but eh dish turned out wonderful. Everyone enjoyed it! Thanks for a great recipe.
