Serbian Cabbage

Serbian Cabbage created by Parsley

I've had this magazine recipe in my collection for years. I try others, but I keep returning to this simple baked cabbage like an old friend.

Ready In:
1hr
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 medium head of cabbage (shredded fine)
  • 14 - 12 cup chopped onion (optional)
  • 12 ounces evaporated milk (like Carnation)
  • 1 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 12 cup butter, cut in small pieces (you might use a bit less)

directions

  • Place cabbage and onions in a shallow 4 quart buttered casserole.
  • Pour the milk over and sprinkle with the breadcrumbs; dot with butter and sprinkle with paprika.
  • Cover and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 30 minutes or until crumbs are golden brown, and cabbage is tender.
  • You can probably substitute low fat or non fat evaporated milk, but don't use regular milk. Some magic will occur, and the cabbage develops a wonderful creamy consistency. (The original recipe states unsuspecting guests won't even recognize it as the "dreaded" cabbage, but I don't think I'd go that far.).
  • I just say it's Comfort Food at it's finest.

    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.

    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.

    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.
