    1. 1
      Heat the oven to 350*F.
    2. 2
      Peel potatoes and cut into coarse chunks. Remove any tougfh outer leaves and the core from the cabbage, and finely slice the leaves.
    3. 3
      Cook the potatoes in a large pan of simmering salted water for 10 minutes, then add the cabbage and cook until both are tender, but not overly soft, about 10 more minutes. Now add the green onions for the last minute of cooking. Drain well.
    4. 4
      Add the butter, half and half, and most of the cheeses, leaving a little to sprinkle over the top later. Mash well, seasoning with salt and pepper.
    5. 5
      You may serve it at this stage, sprinkled with the rest of the cheese. Or, if you like, pour it all into a buttered baking dish, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and bake until lightly browned and steaming hot, 25-30 minutes!
    6. 6
      If you want to make this a main dish, fry the eggs to your liking and place on top of each serving.
    7. 7
      Now you're feeling better. Enjoy!

      This was so good! I made it up the night before and then put it in to bake the next morning. I served with fried eggs and it was delicious.

      It was one of those cold dreary days and decided to try this - a true comfort food. I followed the directions except used mozzerella cheese as that's all I had, put a soft egg on top and it was so good, wondering how some added ham and garlic would taste with it.

      Really yummy comfort food. I was short on potatoes, and added some dehydrated sliced potatoes and it still came out great. Instead of topping with fried eggs, I just poured the mixture into a 9x13 pan and made little wells for 4 eggs. Then I placed it in the oven just until the eggs were done, topped with a little cheese and returned to the oven for another minute. Next time I will just fry the egg, as I like a runny yoke. Also, my family likes a lot more cabbage - I'll probably up this quite a bit next time - and there will be a next time.
      Really tasty and I just love to say the name 'Rumbledethumps...Rumbledethumps!' Isn't it fun?
      Edit - I used just a head of green cabbage. I didn't have Savoy.
