Recipe Notes

  • To get thin cabbage slices, try using a mandoline slicer. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cook the cabbage in boiling, salted water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain well and return to pot. Add the butter and season with salt and pepper.
  2. To make the white sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Whisk in the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Slowly pour in the milk, whisking, and cook until thickened. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. In an oiled casserole dish, makes layers with the cabbage, cheese and sauce, ending with the sauce. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and bake about 5 minutes more.
