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!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
A culinary match made in heaven! The cabbage and cheese are simply divine together.

Ingredients

1 small
head green cabbage
2 c
cheddar cheese, shredded

WHITE SAUCE:
3 Tbsp
butter
3 Tbsp
all purpose flour

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.

Bake at 375 for 25 minutes, or until bread crumbs are browned.

Mary, I make my scalloped potatoes with the same sauce. It's really just a basic white sauce. I know you will love it. I hope it will taste like your mom's.

Hi Ellen, I love cabbage. I usually just steam it in a skillet, so I wanted to try this. It was delicious. And it's one of those dishes that's even better next day. I didn't have any bread crumbs so I used French's fried onions, which I love, so I really enjoyed it that way. I also wanted to tell you a story. My mom, who passed, made the best scalloped potatoes. She didn't have a recipe. I have tried to recreate them but have never been able to get it right. When I tried this, the first thing I noticed was that the sauce tasted just like her potatoes. So I am going to try making scalloped potatoes using your sauce. I think it will be wonderful. Thanks so much for the recipe. And congratulations on your blue ribbon.
