I just made this and had to come and give it a review. With the changes I made it is really special. To this I added a can of corn. I also used a mixture of Velveta and cheddar cheeses. When making the sauce in the pan I only used a bit of milk and threw in a can of Cheddar Cheese Soup. I added a few dashes of nutmeg cayenne and onion power and black pepper. On top of the breadcrumbs I did sprinkle paprika and parsley as taken from another reviewer. Delicious and makes a lot!

I would give it a 3 1/2 stars. It was good but my husband said it isn't something he would go back to seconds for. However it is a good budget meal!

We enjoyed this recipe a lot. I don't like processed cheese so I used shredded cheddar. The second time I made it I used French's Fried Onions on top while it baked the last 15 minutes. It was better than the bread crumbs.

I absolutely loved this recipe. A real "comfort" dinner on a cold winters' night. I mixed the sauce into the steamed cabbage and onion then layered this with the ham and topped with the bread crumbs sprinkled paprika and parsley over top. Delicious.

Pretty good dinner. OFCOURSE I used the pre-packaged coleslaw (largest bag available)!! I didn't really get what it meant by "steam" the slaw...steam it like you do to veggies or put it in the pan? Well I chose the latter only instead of water I used some chicken broth (just barely enough to cover the bottom of the pan). I sprinkled some garlic/onion powder over the cabbage as well for extra taste. Funny thing the recipe doesn't state what to do with the ham but luckily I'm a smart woman so I layered it over the cabbage. The cheese sauce is a small pain if your not patient and it is a little too much but overall this was very good. I used season bread crumbs and it was a good stick-to-your-ribs meal! Thanks Jeanie!

This was so awesome! I let the cabbage/onion cook down in 1 cup of chicken broth added the ham (to warm it up) then strained the whole thing prior to putting in the buttered dish. That worked well as there was a tiny bit more liquid formed in the bottom of dish during the baking period. Had i not drained the original liquid it would have turned out too watery. The topping was awesome! i didn't have velveta so i mixed the butter/flour mixture added the milk then about 1 cup of shredded mild cheddar and it melted perfectly... layered over the top and baked w/ the bread crumbs and dotted w/ butter as directed. Was a TOTAL HIT!!! We will eat this often!!! ENJOY!

My family loved this recipe. All three of my children ate it all (once I forced the first bite of course). Everyone asked me where I found the recipe it was so perfect as a leftover meal to use of cabbage and ham. I made exactly as the recipe tells you to and I thought it was perfect.

Oh my gosh! Soooo rich! I didn't even like cabbage until I tried this dish. Made it exactly like the recipe which I don't usually do and it was perfect.

Very easy and tasty..I precooked the slaw and onion in the microwave to save on cooking time. I also added chopped tomato for color. I definately would make this recipe again.
