  4. Melt butter in skillet. (May use same skillet as used for cabbage.) Add flour and saute for about 2 minutes until blended and bubbly. Add milk and saute until thickened. (about 3 minutes) Pour over casserole and use knife or fork to make slits in the casserole so the sauce seeps into the dish.
  5. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes at 350. Remove foil and finish baking for another 10-15 minutes, until bubbly.
