Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 1 medium head of cabbage
  • 1/4 cup butter 
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

Heat butter in a large skillet over medium low heat. Sauté green pepper and onion until tender. Add flour and cook for  1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add the milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Stir in salt and pepper. Pour sauce over cabbage. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes.

Creamy Cabbage-y Goodness!, Member PamperedShef

Amazing! I do not really like cabbage, but my family does so I try to find creative ways to make it. This recipe was simple and got rave reviews from everybody, myself included! We didn't have cheddar cheese so I used smoked provolone. We didn't have chili sauce so I used red curry paste. AMAZING flavor. Anybody looking for an easy yummy way to dish up cabbage - this is for you!
