Baked Cabbage

Well, I finally got away from the kitchen sink after spending most of the morning making dinner. I made a few things today that I haven't made in a while and will share them with you over the next couple of days. Similar to this cabbage...I love cabbage pretty much any way you cook it, so I followed my dad's lead and put it in the oven with everything else I was making. And I didn't make my husband leave because of it. This is a recipe that almost never goes wrong and always turns out great. It can be a meal on its own if you put it on a big piece of toasted cornbread.

Baked Cabbage

  • 1 medium head of cabbage, chopped into about 5 cups
  • 4 T. butter
  • 1/2 cup of water 14 teaspoon of salt 12 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sugar and a pinch or two of red pepper flakes, if you want.



  1. Wash the cabbage, cut it in half, then cut each half into thin strips.
  2. Put the cabbage in a 2 quart baking dish (I used my 8" iron pan).
  3. Cut the butter into four pieces and put them all over the cabbage. Pour the water into the bowl, and then add the seasoning on top.
  4. Don't stir it. Cover with tin foil and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
  5. Take off the tin foil and bake for another 15 minutes, or until the meat is as soft as you want it to be.
  6. Before I take mine out, I like the tips to get a little crispy.
