This is a hearty, creamy, thick winter delight. Serve with pumpernickel bread. I make this vegan by using Bocca brats, soy milk and soy swiss cheese, and it's absolutely wonderful.

Very good!! I'll be making this again!! It was nice & hearty--real stick-to-your-ribs good!! Great for a cold winter night!! The only thing I substituted was cheddar cheese for the swiss cheese. Even my picky 2-yr old twins liked it!!

I have this recipe from another source and have made it for years. It is about the only way to get DH to eat cabbage. I love the taste of the cabbage and swiss cheese. Thanks for sharing!
