So glad to see this recipe here. I cut it out of Woman's Day years ago, I don't want to think how many years ago! I've made it many times; it's delicious. I've never used the chopped onions, but may try that the next time. Very tasty without them. Yes, one needs to use evaporated milk. Cheaper than heavy cream though! Thanks for posting, SMS.
We enjoyed this cabbage dish tonight for dinner. My cabbage didn't get as tender as I expected, but it was still very good, but on the crunchy side (which is perfectly fine). I think the dish could use some additional seasoning. Will definitely make this dish again. : ) Made for the Football Pool, October, 2014.
OMG! This is soooooo good! Just do it!
I also had the recipe from the 4/5/1983 Woman's Day but never made it until tonight. I used two 10 oz packages of Fresh Express Angel Hair Cole Slaw and a small can of 2% evaporated milk along with half of the bread crumbs and butter. It was very different and very good I will make this again very soon. It does need salt though. Can't believe I had this recipe for so many years and never made it. I missed out on a great recipe for many years. Try it, you won't believe your eating cabbage.
Hey ... wait a minute ... THIS IS CABBAGE!!! This is so yummy I can't believe it. Very cheesy ... but no cheese ... DELICIOUS!!!
This was extremely easy to make and the final result tasted surprisingly like it had cheese in it though it didn't. It was a tasty mellow dish and a good way to use up some cabbage which had been sitting in the fridge.
This was so easy and delicious! My kids ate this up and they "hate" cabbage! The milk took the bitterness out of the cabbage and made it so creamy. I used garlic and herb breadcrumbs and it was perfect! Thanks!
I agree w/ Poutine; the evaporated milk gives the cabbage a subtle sweetness. A little salt and pepper is all it needs. I LOVED the buttery topping, too. I used 2% evap milk and used the optional onions (Vidalia), which I highly recommend. The sauce does not thicken, so if you expect a thick sauce, you'd have to add flour or cheese. Wonderful comfort food that I'll make again. Thanx for posting.
I love cabbage and it was very good, the evaporated milk mellows down the taste of the cabbage and makes it a little sweet. It only needed a little pepper and salt. I bet it would be good with some leftover cooked ham and cheddar cheese too.
Very, very good way to get your veggies. I made 1/2 a recipe. I can't say it was particularly creamy and that may have been because I divided it. At any rate, I didn't mind. Next time I'll double the bread crumbs. I really liked the crunch.
