Cabbage Au Gratin Pie

Pat Duran


This recipe was given to me in the 60's from my sister Kathy's MIL- it is one that was going around quite a bit back then- I still like to make it( I think it was from Weight Watcher') or some other diet club...?
Anyway it is very good.
This is the diet version. The full calorie version is in my book on page 44; or see below. You be the judge;try one of these versions -see which one you like the best!
Enjoy this tasty dish without guilt!
