Easy Cabbage and Cheese Casserole

Updated on January 30, 2008

Do you enjoy cheesy vegetable casseroles? If so, this unique and tasty Easy Cabbage and Cheese Casserole is sure to be something you enjoy. I came up with this different twist on a baked veggie and cheese side dish when I was looking for an alternative to a traditional green been or broccoli casserole. If you're looking for a new way to enjoy eating cabbage, you just might find that his tasty dish becomes one of your favorite dishes for family meals, potlucks, and special occasions.

Easy Cabbage and Cheese Casserole Recipe

What You'll Need to Get Started:

  • 1 large bag of shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • 1/4 of a cup of flour
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 1 cup of water
  • 8 ounces of shredded cheese (cheddar, pepper jack, Colby, or another similar variety)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup crushed Ritz crackers (for topping)

How to Prepare This Great Recipe:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Melt two tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.

When the butter is melted, add the cabbage and cook, stirring frequently until it reaches a crisp-tender consistency, then remove from heat.

Melt the rest of the butter in a small saucepan.

Stir the flour into the butter until smooth.

Add the milk, salt, and pepper to the saucepan, stirring until smooth.

Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat.

Reduce the temperature to medium high and continue to cook, stirring constantly until thickened. (This will take approximately two minutes.)

Add the milk and flour mixture to the cooked cabbage, stirring to combine.

Stir in all but 1/2 cup of the cheese.

Place the mixture in a 10 X 13 casserole dish.

Top with cheese.

Sprinkle crushed Ritz crackers over the top.

Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until mixture is bubbly and the cheese is melted.

Recipe Variation

You can purchase a fresh head of cabbage and chop or shred it yourself if you'd prefer.

You can use Progresso bread crumbs, Durkee French Fried Onions, or crushed potato chips to top the casserole.

You don't have to add a topping at all. This dish tastes great simply topped off with your favorite type of shredded cheese.

Serving Suggestion

This is the perfect side dish for a baked ham or fried chicken dinner. Try adding it to the buffet at your next holiday meal occasion, and you'll be shocked to find out just how many of your family members love cabbage when it's prepared in this manner.
