Follow step-by-step, photo illustrated instructions for making this delicious Cabbage Casserole dish. We’re taking cooked cabbage up a couple of levels, adding some cheddar cheese, and making a dish even those family members that don’t like cabbage will find themselves asking for seconds. I’ve never been a fan of cooked cabbage myself, and it even made me go back for more.



  • 1 whole Cabbage, shredded
  • 1 medium Onion, diced
  • 1 medium Carrot, diced
  • 1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 stick Butter, divided
  • 6 ounces American Cheese, grated
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar.
  • ½ cup dry Breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Black Pepper


  1. Remove any bad or old outer leaves from the cabbage. Save for compost pile or discard.
  2. Rinse the cabbage and the carrot under cold running water.
  3. Remove core from cabbage and discard.
  4. Slice cabbage into bite size pieces.
  5. Place cut cabbage in a large sauce pot, cover with water.
  6. Add the vinegar and cook cabbage over medium heat until tender.
  7. Remove both ends from carrot and discard. Dice carrot into small pieces
  8. Remove outer skin layer from onion and discard. Slice onion in half, dice into small pieces.
  9. When tender, drain the cooked cabbage thoroughly.
  10. Place diced onions, carrots and 3 Tablespoons of the butter in the large pot.
  11. Saute until onions are translucent and carrots are tender.
  12. Add the mushroom soup, stir until warm.
  13. Add the drained cabbage a little at the time, stirring after each addition.
  14. Add Salt.
  15. Add Black Pepper
  16. Stir well to be sure it’s all mixed together.
  17. Taste the dish at this point to see if it needs more salt or black pepper. Add if needed.
  18. Spoon 1/3 of the mixture into an ungreased 2.5 quart casserole dish, and spread out evenly.
  19. Top with some of the grated cheese and give it a gentle stir, just to mix it up a bit.
  20. Repeat the process, adding another 1/3 layer of cabbage, then cheese, stirring gently again.
  21. Top the mixture with the remaining 1/3 of the cabbage.
  22. Sprinkle bread crumbs all over the top of the cabbage, spreading evenly with a spoon.
  23. Melt remaining butter and drizzle over breadcrumbs.
  24. Bake, uncovered, at 350º for 25-30 minutes or until thoroughly heated all the way thru.
  25. Serve warm and Enjoy!


Adding the vinegar to the cabbage while it cooks, may cut down on some of the “aroma” while it cooks. This would be great topped with a Stuffing mix instead of Bread Crumbs. That would add a little crunchiness.
