I just tried out this recipe over the weekend and this dish is amazing! I didn’t expect it to be so delicious to be honest but it is amazing. It is super easy to make, doesn’t require a lot of different ingredients and is done fairly quickly.

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 medium head (about 2 to 2 1/2 pounds) cabbage, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic, halved
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoons curry
  • 8 ounces white Cheddar cheese, shredded ( alternative you can use cream cheese)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • generous grating of fresh pepper, about 1/4 teaspoon

Optional :

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, optional
  • Ham

Preparation:

Heat oven to 350°. Grease a 2 1/2-quart baking dish.

Hard boil the eggs, take off the shell and cut them into slices.

Steam the cabbage until just tender. Drain well and set aside.

In a medium saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons of butter over medium-low heat. Saute the garlic until aromatic, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove garlic and discard. Add the flour to the flavored butter and cook, stirring, until smooth and bubbly. Stir in the milk and curry. Cook, stirring, until thickened. Stir in the Cheddar cheese and add salt and pepper, to taste. (If wanted you can also add ham pieces)

Combine the sauce and the eggs with the drained cabbage and pour into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese, if using.

Enjoy!
