Let me tell you right off, the picture doesn't give this recipe justice! I had a hard time taking a picture of this, but I want to tell you that this dish is absolutely DELICIOUS! I know, cabbage, how can it be that great? Well, it is! I got this recipe from my mother in law over 30 years ago. The first time I tasted this, I was dating my soon to be husband. She had cooked this for Sunday dinner. I had never been a cabbage fan growing up, but when I tasted her cabbage augratin for the first time, I became one! This is made with simple ingredients which reminds me of good old home cooking. Please take my word for it, this is one you will want to try!
5 cups cooked cabbage (1 large head) I steamed mine till it was just starting to soften.
3 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 cups milk
3 Tbsp. melted butter
1/2 cup-3/4 cup bread crumbs or cracker crumbs. (I used bread crumbs)
Place the cooked cabbage in greased casserole dish. (I used a 10x10x2, 2.5 liter casserole dish)
To make the sauce, melt the butter then add the flour a Tbsp. at a time and stir in. Gradually add the milk stirring constantly. Continue stirring until the sauce starts to thicken. Add the salt and pepper.
Pour the white sauce over the cabbage.
Mix the bread crumbs and melted butter together, and sprinkle over the top of the cabbage.
