Creamy Cheesy Cabbage Casserole

Cabbage casserole with a creamy sauce and cheesy cracker topping.  This cabbage casserole recipe is perfect for any large get together and is a great side dish. Goes great with ham!    

Yummy Cabbage Casserole

When I told my husband I was making a cabbage casserole, he cringed.  He isn’t a fan of cabbage!  But I am and I love it cooked all kinds of ways whether it’s smothered with bacon or in a casserole like this recipe!  Vegetable casseroles are always a popular dish with a crowd.  

Say Yes to Cheese!

One thing for sure is cheese makes everything better, right.  I like to use mild cheddar cheese for this recipe.  However, pepper jack would be a nice change of pace if you like a little extra flavor. 

Easy and Delicious Side Dish

This recipe is easy to throw together for a simple vegetable side dish to make any occasion special.  The cream of mushroom soup mixed with mayonnaise creates a super smooth, velvety texture.  The cheesy cracker topping gives it that special final touch.

  2. In a bowl, combine the cream of mushroom soup and mayonnaise.  Pour over the cabbage.

  3. Mixed the crushed crackers and cheese and pour on top of the soup mixture.

Recipe Note

Crispy or crunchy cabbage?  Most people either like it crispy and crunchy or soft (or both ways like me).    This recipe is easy and flexible.  If you like it crispy and crunchy, then don’t pre-cook the cabbage.  If you only like it soft cooked, then you can pre-cook it before putting the casserole together.  You can boil the chopped cabbage or pan fry for about 5-8 minutes.  Keep in mind that this casserole will bake for about 40 minutes so unless you want mushy cabbage, don’t boil or fry any longer than that.
