My husband gave me the ultimate compliment saying "You can make this again!" Here is what I did - steam the cabbage (healthier and tastier than boiling). Make a bechamel sauce with butter flour (I used Wondra) and 1 cup of milk. Add salt and pepper to taste. Layer the tender cabbage bechamel and grated Swiss cheese. Bake until golden on top and bubbly around the sides. Next time we're going to add a little mustard to the bechamel for extra tang. But it's delicious as is. I would have rated this higher but I did make some changes. Read More

this was really good. after reading all the reviews i didnt precook the cabbage and i used much less than called for. i sauteed some onion and garlic w/ the margarine before making the bechamel sauce. then i added some shredded carrots to my finely sliced cabbage. salt and pepper made this wonderful. it really reminded me of mac and cheese. i melted some margarine w/ the bread crumbs and added those 10 mins before the end of baking time.i will make this again.next time i will melt the cheese into the bechamel sauce so i dont have to cut it. served this w/ tuna coney dogs from this site.

I liked it but mainly because I used some delicious cabbage. The cheese was kinda runny and the overall appearance and texture was not appealing. It did not keep well in the fridge. Read More

Not bitter at all -- sweet and cheesy. Make sure to let the white sauce thicken before spreading it. We liked it a lot. Read More
