Last week, we received a small head of cabbage in our CSA box. I've never purchased a whole cabbage before. I've purchased salad mixes with cabbage, or pre-shredded cabbage, so I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with a whole cabbage head. I decided to look around at some recipes, and I came up with this hybrid cabbage casserole. Both my husband and I really liked it. In fact, my husband commented a few times about how much he liked it, even a day after we had eaten it. I received another head of cabbage in this week's produce box, and I think I'm going to make this again!
1 small head of cabbage, cut into small pieces and cored
1 cup of chopped onions
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 cup of milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
4 tablespoons goat cheese
4 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup bread crumbs (I used rice bread crumbs)
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp garlic powder
Salt to taste
Pre-heat oven to 350.
Melt butter in large frying pan over medium heat. Add in cabbage and onion, and cook for about 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened. Meanwhile, beat 4 eggs in a small bowl.
Add in milk and cheese. Cook for approximately another 5 minutes, until milk starts to boil. Slowly add the beaten eggs to the vegetable and milk mixture, stirring as you pour in the egg. Add in bread crumbs, basil, salt and garlic powder. Cook for another 5 minutes.
Put mixture into a small casserole dish. Sprinkle top with dried oregano, parmesan cheese and a few tablespoons of bread crumbs. Put into oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes, until bread crumbs on top begin to brown.
