Southern Cabbage Casserole is my recipe of the day. New Year’s Day is  upon us and cabbage is on sale everywhere. That is a lucky food  if  nothing else!

Southern Cabbage Casserole

This casserole is an old-fashioned style recipe which is  similar in  some ways to a green bean casserole. It does use a condensed canned soup as part of the sauce, but that can be switched out with an onion seasoned Bechamel sauce if you prefer.

You will find many  similar recipes  online. I’ve seen some with mushroom  soup  but I prefer onion, as I think it tastes better. In addition,  I think the bake times are way off on some of the  others. I know the first  time  I made one of these with a similar time the cabbage was basically still raw.

So if you don’t like  your casserole  really crunchy (in the vegetables,  not the topping)  you will stick to my  guidance on that. I like my cabbage crunchy in cole slaw but that’s about it.  How about you?
