Ingredients

  • 30 oz. 900 g green cabbage
  • 1 1 yellow onionyellow onions
  • 2 2 garlic clovegarlic cloves
  • 3 oz. 90 g butter
  • 1¼ cups 300 ml heavy whipping cream
  • 513 tbsp 80 ml sour cream or crème fraîche
  • 513 oz. 150 g cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp ranch seasoning
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp salt
  • 513 oz. 150 g (325 ml) shredded cheese

Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Shred onion, garlic and green cabbage using a sharp knife or a mandolin slicer. The quickest way is to use a food processor.
  2. Heat a large frying pan and add the butter. Sauté the vegetables until softened, about 8-10 minutes. Add cream, sour cream, cream cheese and spices. Stir thoroughly and let simmer for another 5–10 minutes.
  3. Add to a greased baking dish. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and has turned a golden color.

Tip!

These rich flavors pair beautifully with grilled - or fried - meat and fish. Whip up a double batch, and freeze the extra in small containers for a quick side dish any night of the week. Save even more time by using pre-shredded coleslaw – just avoid mixes with carrots if you can.

    How much cream cheese? The instructions mention cream cheese, but it is not shown on the ingredient list.

    I made this and it was fantastic! Guessed on the cream cheese and used 2 ounces. I also used a cup of cream (instead of 1 1/4) and added some bacon bits to the mixture before adding the cheese on top and baking. This is going to be something we make a lot!

    Can someone tell me where to find cream cheese, or whipping cream without additives/stabilizers? In the grocery stores I have frequented, all such dairy have stabilizers. I do not have access at present to a dairy farm.

    My sister has renamed this dish Cabbage Dauphinoise which is a perfect description. This dish is amazing and a huge hit. Thank you.

    what type of shredded cheese is the best to use for this recipe?

    I made this and was I ever surprised at how good it was. It takes on sort of a scalloped potato consistency and the cabbage and cream cheese give it a slightly sweet taste. I loved it cold, too. I expected it to be stinky and limp--a throwback to corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's Day that has tainted my opinion of the vegetable ever since! This makes a generous six servings, so I was having it for lunch and dinner and sometimes even had a few spoonfuls for breakfast; it's that good. All I had was Swiss cheese, and that kept it all quite mild. I think any cheese would be good...well, maybe not bleu cheese.

    This dish is the bomb! Nom nom nom.

    OMG, this is awesome! I'm eating it now as I type. I realize that I'm going to have to make this again for the next up coming week. It's so delicious! I tastes so sinful!

    Is there a way that we can pick recipes let's say make our own weekly meal plan and it will generate a shopping list. If not this would be a great feature.
    This site is awesome. You all have done a great job and I can see that it is growing.

    OMG I made this exactly as the recipe intends... Absolutely delicious and I highly recommend anyone give it a go. The cheese on top made it for me as I let it go a little crispy on the sides.

    Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Shelly!

    It's net carbs.

    Nutrition info - 11g carbs per serving. Is this total or net? Thank you.

    Are you eating this as a meal or a side? I would love to try it but unsure if it would be satisfying as just a meal itself.

    I tried this recipe but added a can of corn beef and crumbled it on the top and then put the cheese on top of the corn beef, it was a big hit with the family and is a keeper. From now on I am going to make two at a time for left overs.

    Is there any fiber ?
  23. Kathy
    Besides the net carbs what is the calories, protein and fat numbers for the recipe?
    Thanks!

    I made this today and I added some Quorn ground to it; of all the cabbage dishes this is the best. Made extra for the week.
  25. Josephine Mabe
    The nutritional guide doesn't say serving size...is this 11g carbs per cup or 4 oz? This is extremely fattening which is good but not clear serving. ..bummer I ate it now I don't know what is my carb, fat, protein intake..ugh.

    Never said what cheese to shred for the top!😣
  27. Mona
    Delicious! I substituted the cream cheese for ricotta and it was amazing! Tastes like pasta alfredo to me! Would also be good with some shredded chicken.
  28. Rose
    Delicious, I froze the leftovers, but it was a little runny after reheating. Still fantastic.
  29. T. Long
    This was absolutely delicious!! I followed the recipe and it came out great. This will be something I make often. Thanks for sharing!
