This is our New Year's Day cabbage dish. My husband, who is not a cabbage lover, will actually eat this and ask for seconds.

Wow! This is good stuff! I don't see how anyone could not love this casserole! I used Velveeta cheese since that was what I had on hand. Otherwise, followed the recipe exactly and everyone had seconds. It's rich, creamy, and cheesy with a wonderful flavor. Try it, you'll like it!

Very good, if you love cabbage and love cheese like I do, this is a must try! I think some diced ham or crumbled bacon will be very good in this also.

Made this for a dinner party & it was very well received. You're never sure if everyone likes cabbage but everyone really enjoyed this dish. You almost can't tell it's even cabbage. With the par-boiling of the cabbage/carrots, it make the casserole very tender. Used homemade seasoned bread crumbs & the marjoram/thyme added a nice flavour. Great recipe, thanks for sharing.
