Cabbage pie casserole isn’t a new dish by any means. It has a long history and is one of those recipes that is often passed down from generation to generation. Retro or vintage dishes like this are definitely making a comeback, so we thought we’d give this one a try just for old times sake and we’ve got to tell you, we were not disappointed. A cabbage filling is enhanced by savory ingredients that really make it mouthwatering. The casserole is topped with a light batter that puffs up and becomes almost pillowy at the top. Do we have your attention yet? Because this is an amazingly wonderful meal you’ve got to try.
There’s nothing too frilly or fancy about cabbage casserole, so it’s important to add a little character to the filling, something that will bring flavor to boiled cabbage. We’ve added onions sautéed in oil and butter as well as shredded parmesan cheese to help make the filling just a little bit creamy. And fresh herbs really make a difference here, we’ve gone with chopped dill for the combination of color and freshness. Of course, we can’t forget the crust. It is light, golden, and offers a little more substance to the casserole, making it truly satisfying and indulgent.
