My grandparents always had a large garden and every summer we kids would have to help pick and can. Nobody liked to eat cabbage so Grandma would fix Scalloped Cabbage - we never complained again!

This is even better than macaroni and cheese! (And almost no carbs.) With the sauce quantities you gave, it was enough for a VERY LARGE head of cabbbage - so for a head that's about 8" in diameter, I'd cut the sauce in half. I liked how the cabbage got sweet when it cooked. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
- 1 head cabbage
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 1 1⁄2 cups half-and-half
- 8 ounces Velveeta cheese, cubed
- salt & pepper
- crushed cracker (for garnish if desired)
Directions See How It's Made
- Cut cabbage up into bite size pieces.
- Par-boil approximately 3-5 minutes, drain well.
- Place cabbage in greased 9x13 casserole.
- Set aside.
- Melt butter in large saucepan.
- Stir in flour and allow to cook 2-3 minutes over medium heat while stirring constantly (I also add salt & pepper to my white sauce to season - approximately 1/4 teaspoons of each).
- Stir in half n half making a thick white sauce. Make your white sauce as thick as you prefer. The thinner the sauce, the more "soupy" the dish will be.
- Cut up Velveeta cheese and stir to melt.
- Season cabbage with salt and pepper to taste.
- Pour cheese sauce over cabbage and bake covered with foil in 350º oven approximately 30-45 minutes till bubbly and cabbage is tender.
- If using the crushed crackers, use saltines or Ritz style crackers accordingly to your tastes. Sprinkle over the top and bake an additional 10 minutes.
- *Updated 7/14/11 - I added 1/4 cup chopped onion to the cabbage while boiling. This went totally undiscovered but did enhance the flavor!
- If you are frying chicken or pork chops to serve with this, use your seasoned flour for the white sauce before coating the meat.
