I think this is a great basic recipe. However, to me it only deserves 4 stars. To make it 5 star worthy it definetaly needs some adjustments. There is no right or wrong way to fix this recipe. You don't have to listen to me & make it step by step the way I did. I suggest that you try it & play around with the ingredients to make it to your own preference. Again, I really do think this recipe as stated is fine, but to make it GREAT here are a few things I would suggest. 1. Use a large head of cabbage. 2. Make sure the water is at a rapid boil before you put the cabbage in & then only boil for 5-7 minutes (or it will be over cooked by the time it comes out of the oven). 3. Make sure you drain as much of the water out of the cabbage as you can. If possible, during the time you're making the cheese sauce let it stand in colander & drain longer. 4. Use 1/4 tsp (or less) salt. You can subsitute garlic salt or you could also use garlic cloves. 5. Use REAL sharp or mild cheddar cheese, or even colby jack or pepper jack. (Try any combination, just make sure you use REAL!) 6. Increase cheese to 1 - 1/2 C, also sprinkle a little extra on top. 7. Increase milk to 1 1/2 C (use more or less to make it as thin or as thick to your liking). 8. Omit the buttery round crackers & use crushed saltine crackers (don't forget to reduce salt!) Hope this helps some of you! Don't get discouraged if you've made this before & wasn't happy, make some small changes & try again!
