Baked Cabbage Recipe



Not a very pretty dish to look at but a creamy cabbage with great taste a great side dish.
This one goes very well with kielbasa, pork or ham.  We like this on cooler days!

Someone in the house was thinking he was slick hiding from me tonight while I was cooking.
 I was checking all over the house and then little Fonzo was peeping out at me,
he was so cute I had to share him! He was inside my new laptop computer box!
 Trying to help me post this one (smile) and yes he inspired me! More handsome than the cabbage for sure!
                                           Fonzo you can run but you can also hide pretty well too!

Baked Cabbage:

1 head green cabbage, finely shredded
1 teaspoon salt
1 inch water in large pan
2 tablespoons butter
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup sour cream
Salt and white pepper to taste
Hungarian sweet paprika
1/2 cup crushed buttery cracker crumbs
Boil shredded cabbage in salted water, covered, for 5 to 10 minute. Drain all the water out.  Add butter to cabbage and mix together.  Add vinegar, sugar, sour cream, white pepper and salt, oregano and garlic,  toss again. Place in a 1-1/2 quart buttered casserole, top with cracker crumbs and garnish with paprika.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until hot.

Hi this make me interest and would love to try this recipe...instead of shredding can I use a blender to make it more smooth?

This is a tasty way to prepare cabbage and to get those non cabbage people to eat it! I have never seen any type of recipe like this-only from the kitchen imagination of Claudia! Well done, my friend!

Tina said...

Not sure if my comment saved here. Your cat is adorable!
This is a great recipe for those who do not eat cabbage, for you have made it into a creamy side dish-which is not only tasty but unique. Never seen anything even close to this recipe-only from the creative mind of Claudia! Well done, my friend.

Cabbage is hard to make look pretty -- the paprika sure helped! -- but it sure is tasty! This cabbage dish is great comfort food.

Fonzo is ADORABLE!! I appreciate a good cabbage recipe and this looks like one of them. I've never used sour cream with it so I'm curious to try adding it sometime. Thanks for sharing Claudia! Have a good one! =]

I have come to appreciate the merits of cabbage in my middle-aged and this would be grand with some kielbasa. What is it about cats and boxes? I have more photos of Pip-in-a-box! So cute!

Very intriguing - I've never had creamy baked cabbage the way you describe it. I love cabbage, so I am sure I'd devour it anyways, but how fascinating! :)
