Ellen's notes for this recipe:
This was given to me by my dear mother-in-law, Mary Armstrong Bales, many years ago. It has long been a family favorite. Even people who don't like cabbage like it!

A culinary match made in heaven! The cabbage and cheese are simply divine together.

Directions

1
Cut cabbage into wedges and cook uncovered until tender (about 25 minutes). Add salt to water just before cooking is completed. Drain cabbage, add butter.
2
For white sauce: in a saucepan, melt butter over low heat, add flour and salt, stir until combined. Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly until thickened.
3
Layer the cabbage, cheese, and white sauce in a 2-1/2 qt. casserole dish. Repeat layers.
4
Top with buttered bread crumbs.
5
Bake at 375 for 25 minutes, or until bread crumbs are browned.
6
A good side dish with ham, pork, sausage, or as a vegetarian main dish.
