I hated cooked cabbage when I first tasted this years ago, but then asked in delight, "What is this?" I was hooked! I've been serving it ever since. It's wonderful with pork roast and Waldorf salad. Hope you all enjoy.

I was looking for a recipe to go with some smoked pork chops I bought at the butcher and this intrigued me. It was WONDERFUL! I used a medium onion since I really like onions, 2% milk, and guessed at the walnuts. I served it with baked apples and our guests all begged for the recipe. I think I added a tad more Swiss cheese as well. I'll make this many more times. Thanks for a great recipe Judikins!!
