Cornbread-Cabbage Casserole

"Hearty, stick-to-the-ribs cabbage casserole. This goes great with pork chops or ham, although I could make a meal of just this alone. Whenever I make cornbread, I usually double the recipe so I have enough left to make this the next day."

  1. I really liked the combo of cornbread and cabbage. My picky husband ate some also. I think next time I would add just a bit more onions and cheese just to experiment and a bit of veggie broth might be okay because it was a tad dry, especially the next day. Still good though.
  2. This was brilliant! My sister and I usually hate cabbage and try to find any excuse not to eat it, but we both loved this. I halved the recipe and it made 3 generous portions. Next time will definately serve it with Quorn sausages for a heartier meal.
  3. I didn't have the bell pepper on hand but eh dish turned out wonderful. Everyone enjoyed it! Thanks for a great recipe.


I am a single gal, living on my own; currently working as an Occupational Therapist & living in Cumberland, MD. (It is "God's Country" out here...beautiful!) I LOVE to cook and bake, and love anything that looks, tastes, smells, or even closely resembles a veggie. I LOVE moo-cows, and therefore, cannot bring myself to eat any part of the adorable critters (i.e. NO RED MEAT!!) I love the outdoors, and pride myself on being the master griller on the fire pit. My mother's side of the family is 100% Polish, so I have an inborn passion for cooking...unfortunately, along with that comes a love of eating, too!! But, hey..u only live once, so I say "EAT, DRINK, and BE MERRY!!!"
