Easy to make creamy cabbage casserole recipe. This creamed cabbage is made with an entire head of cabbage for a delicious side dish or simple dinner.
Creamy Cabbage Casserole
I love this Creamy Cabbage Casserole recipe because it’s creamy, cheesy, easy to make and so delicious! It reminds me of macaroni and cheese but without the pasta.
The cabbage is boiled to make it tender, and then a creamy sauce is made with cheddar cheese. These are poured into a baking dish, with bread crumbs added on top. In 30 minutes, you’ll have a delicious cabbage dish ready to serve your family!
This makes a great side dish to serve along with meat, but we also love it as a main course served with some crusty bread. Make sure to check out my recommendations below on what to serve it with!
How to Make Creamy Cabbage
Chop up an entire head of cabbage, removing the core inside.
Boil the chopped up cabbage until tender. This takes about 10 minutes. When finished, drain it and let it sit in the colander for a few minutes. This step is IMPORTANT as we don’t want watery cabbage. You can even throw it into your salad spinner and give it a spin to get all the water off.
While the cabbage is boiling, make the cream sauce. You’ll melt butter and chopped onion in a medium-sized saucepan. Add flour, milk, salt and pepper, and finally cheddar cheese and whisk until thickened and creamy.
Put the cabbage into the baking dish, and then add the cream sauce, mix to combine. Finally, sprinkle the bread crumbs on top. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is browned.
Serve and enjoy! I hope you love this Creamy Cabbage Casserole!
Can I turn this into a Sausage and Cabbage Casserole?
Definitely! You can add kielbasa to make this a sausage and cabbage casserole. Take a pound of kielbasa and chop it up into 1 inch pieces and put into the baking dish. Mix to fully combine with the cabbage and cream sauce. Bake as usual for 30 minutes, or until the meat is fully cooked.
