Tasty Cabbage Casserole

"Even people who don't like cabbage have enjoyed this recipe! Really tasty and different.We have made this with coleslaw mix,(in the greens section of your market) to save time with shredding the cabbage! It is really a quick and easy casserole...great tasting, and versatile! We have added different things to it, changing it often. (example: cubed ham, green peppers, tuna, etc)Very inexpensive meal.Great for a "change" of veggie!"

  1. I loved this! I love cabbage anyways, but this was really good and really easy to make. I followed the recipe except for substituting cream of celery soup(I always have cream of mushroom in the house, but not this time) and that seemed fine. I think I will use the cream of mushroom though next time. Very nice side dish for kielbasa!!!
  2. Love this! Cabbage tastes like cauliflower and I love them both so it's a winner for me!
  3. Wow! This was awesome. My DH, who doesn't like cooked cabbage said "This is damn good.* I will definitely be making this again.
  4. Very good and easy to make. I used crushed crackers in place of the breadcrumbs. That buttery topping is awesome. I cooked my cabbage a little longer than written. When it's a little softer, my kids assume it's cooked lettuce. ;) Thanx for a great cabbage dish!
  5. I enjoyed the casserole but my B didn't like it. I am going to have to find something that he is going to like. I love cabbage.


I am in Northeastern Ohio. Have lived here my entire life. I am retired. I was raised at my Grandmother's side, with an apron and wooden spoon, as my small chef's wardrobe! We spent many happy times, in her kitchen baking and cooking up memories! My love of the culinary arts has never waned. It seems I still cook and bake, as if I were feeding everyone at Grandma's Boarding House! (although my neighbors are happy about the "goodies" I am constantly sending their way!) I must learn to cook for two... My kitchen is in my Cape Cod Style home and done in a French Country style, with french blue and pale yellow, accented with white.
