Baked Cream Cabbage

I am NOT a fan of cabbage, but when my mother in law made this for the first time for me a couple of years ago, I fell in love!

1 cabbage head
1 white onion, thinly sliced
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tablespoon melted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon melted butter
1/4 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons sugar
1 cup buttered breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Remove outer leaves from cabbage and shred it finely.  Drop into rapidly boiling salted water (1 1/2 teaspoon salt to 1 quart water) cook 7 minutes and drain.  Saute' the onion slices in butter until soft, but not brown.  Mix with the cabbage and place in greased baking dish.  Combine the beaten eggs, melted butter, milk, sugar, nutmeg, salt and paprika.  Mix well and pour over the cabbage and onion mixture.  Bake in a slow oven at 325 until it is slightly browned.  Cover top with butter bread crumbs grated cheese.  Return to oven until cheese melts.


  1. Do you know if this doubles/triples/quadruples well? I'm thinking this would be great for a church dinner.

    1. I would say if you are making it at home, I wouldn't more than double it. But if you are using your industrial oven at your church, then you can likely make it as big as you would like!
