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.
