I had some shredded cabbage in the fridge, so made half of this recipe. If you want a bold side dish, this isn't for you. But if you're looking for something to, perhaps, complement a bold entree, this is it! My husband said this doesn't overwhelm anything, but still has a flavor (well put, I thought). Followed the recipe to the letter and used panko bread crumbs for the topping. It's just mellow, creamy, rich with a hint of freshly grated nutmeg. Don't tell the kids this is cooked cabbage because they'll never figure this one out. Thoroughly enjoyed this.

This is one of my favorites, I'm used to seeing it with a little paprika, and no sugar, so when I started craving it, and looked up the recipe I was a little suprised. Since I try to stay away from as much processed sugar as I can (no always sucessful with I went ahead and left that out, but still was soooooo yummy. I stirred the seasonings into the cream, and tossed the cabbage and cream together in a mixing bowl before putting it in the casserole dish. Had an open( package of crackers in the cupbord, so smashed them up to use for my crumb topping, and added a little bit of parmasean to the top just to be creative. This recipe is always recieved well, and is mostly goof-proof!

I give it one start because it was easy. I can't however give it anymore than that. My husband and I found this quite bad. We couldn't even finish our serving. After seeing the reviews, I thought that this would be something we would like, but it isn't for us. I followed the directions to a tee, but after it was all said and done, I can't think of anyway to improve this recipes. I love creamed turnips and thought this might be like it, but it isn't. Thanks for sharing, but I will continue to look for a different kinda way of fixing cabbage.

Fabulous! For low carb, I used two heaping teaspoons of Splenda and as other mixed it all together in a bowl before pouring into the casserole dish. To spice up the bread crumb topping I mixed 3/4 C each bread crumbs, shredded emmentaler, and shredded parmesan. My hubby and I both loved it!

What a great way to use up "economical" cabbage! We loved this! Didn't have bread crumbs so used up the remainder of a bag of tortilla chips broken up for the topping. Delicious! Cathy L.

This was very good!! I made it for a group of people and everyone loved it. My husband was disappointed that there were not any leftovers.
