Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil potatoes . Partially boil cabbage at the same time as potatoes, in separate pot.
  2. Mash potatoes adding milk, cheese, onion, salt and pepper. Mix in a large bowl with ham and half cooked chopped cabbage.
  3. If you prefer it not quite so creamy just use 1/4 cup of skim milk.
  4. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray and lightly line with a few cooked cabbage leaves. Plop in mixture, sprinkle with paprika or cayenne and cover.
  5. Warm in 200-250 degree oven for approximately 1 hour or more. If you keep it in longer, keep your eye out that it doesn`t burn or get dry.I`ve had mine in for two hours and it was fine.
  6. Just before you`re ready to pop it out of the oven, turn on the broiler, take off the lid and give it a wee bit of browning on top.
  7. This can also be done on the stove top fried in some butter or this way with the left-overs -- yumm -- but beware of the added fat and calories!
  8. 1 cup = 129 calories and 1.6 grams of fat.
