Additional Notes: 

*To make your own bread crumbs for the top, tear a couple slices of bread into small pieces. Spread on a cookie sheet and bake at about 200 degrees until dried. You can also toast the bread first to speed the drying process if you wish.

20 minutes

Cooking Time:

Tammy's Review: 

This casserole is a great use for cabbage, since it calls for a lot! :) I think it's quite tasty. Another perk is that it's super-easy to make, and you can even use leftover cooked cabbage or leftover meat in it if you want. My rating: 9/10.

This wasn't bad at all...I don't always like cabbage, but this was pretty good!

I prepared this for supper this evening and my husband loved it. I added a can of sliced mushrooms and a small can of chopped green chilis. This added a little zing. A deliciously different take on cabbage which is one of our favorite ingredients. I think the leftovers will be delicious.

I'm not sure I could ever give a casserole a 10 of 10, but this comes pretty close! :) It is a delicious and unique way to eat cabbage that I would definitely recommend for an easy weeknight meal.

Edited to add: My family frequently replaces the hamburger in this recipe with leftover shredded roast beef, which I think is more flavorful. Plus, it's a great way to use up the leftovers! :)

How in the world did someone think to mix this stuff together and try it? I had never mixed cabbage and sour cream before. I was hoping this was not a waste of all that sour cream and 3 cups of cheese. But just like all the other recipes I have tried, this one is really good and easy. Thanks Tammy.

Tammy, My SIL has a breeding herd of herefords. She just brought a 3 year old bull to the butcher. Do we have hamburger?! I am looking for new recipes so that eating hamburger every day won't be so monotonous.

This went together quickly. My husband turned all the leftovers into MRE (meals ready to eat... lunch for him). Even my picky teen daughter like this.

I only had 8 oz of cheddar cheese, so I put 6 oz in the casserole and then sprinkled the remaining cheese. It was still good.

delicious! I wasn't sure about this one with all the cabbage but it turned out great! I'll definitely make it again. The only thing I did different was add more sour cream, a little more onion and gr. pepper.

I like the way user Abutton states it "not sure I could ever give a casserole a 10 of 10, but this comes pretty close!" I am NOT a cabbage lover by any means, but even I went back for seconds, as did my three dinner guest. Excellent "Keeper".... THANKS.

We were pleasantly surprised at how yummy this was. I did everything the same as the recipe. For the croutons, I pounded them into crumbs. I only had one ccild pick all around everything because she didn't like the onions.
