This savory Cabbage Casserole is a cozy winter treat. The consistency is similar to a quiche with a creamy cabbage center, fresh herbs and an irresistible crust. The golden cheesy crust takes this over the top with a slight cheese pull when it’s hot and fresh out of the oven.

We serve this with a hefty dollop of sour cream. My husband eats slices like he does pizza which makes me all giddy because it’s just a glorious slice of vegetables – YES!!

This cabbage casserole pie is everything I love about Ukrainian and Russian recipes – using simple, basic, inexpensive ingredients to make something completely delicious. 

My Mom found this recipe idea on Youtube and made it for a family dinner. Everyone was smitten and we adopted it quickly!

I love how it poofs up out of the oven and the filling is just as tempting as the crust. MMMM mm!

    I made this pie and it was delicious.
    I used a bag of coleslaw vegetable mix (mostly cabbage, carrot, onion, celery) that was just passing it’s best before date. So it was not fresh enough for a salad and I was looking for alternative uses. This recipe came very handy. Thanks Natasha.

    I used your recipe as a base for an Irish dish. I made colcannon first, and then mixed that with a 1/4 c vegan cream cheese subbed for the sour cream, into the egg/flour mixture. I then mixed about a cup of cabbage and vegan cheese (this is a non-dairy recipe) put that on the bottom of the pie plate, then poured the colcannon/egg mix over it. An Irish quiche if I ever tasted one!

    This was a great recipe but I used too much salt on the cabbage. That was me though. I added sausage, onion, and sautéed the cabbage for just a few minutes because I didn’t want it crunchy. This was a fine recipe!

    Natasha, This was so easy. I loved the taste of the dill and this recipe was so easy to make. I have a question, can you freeze it?

      Hi Katherine, I honestly haven’t experimented with freezing this cabbage casserole so I can’t say for sure, but I think it’s worth experimenting. If you test it out, let me know how you liked it!

      It freezes very nicely. I freeze individual slices so I can pull just what I need. Thaw to room temp and microwave. Delicious.

    Ironically, this recipe popped up the other evening when I was figuring I’d make breakfast for dinner since I hadn’t really thawed anything. I had a bag of cabbage cole slaw mix that I didn’t want to go bad before I used it up so I got the ingredients together to make this pie. I added jalapeño peppers and ground some maple sausage patties in my food processor and added those as well. I didn’t have the mozzarella cheese but had two half pkgs of cheese for making tacos (3 cheese variety) that I used instead. I also only had onion sour cream dip that I used in the place of plain sour cream. It turned out very nicely and my mate and I had it three days in a row. The first night we just had it by itself. The 2nd night I sliced a pink grapefruit and two avocados that we ate with it. Last night we had the last two slices and raw carrots and celery on the side. All 3 meals were a big hit.

    I volunteer with a food share that delivers food to senior citizens. Whenever we have cabbage I share this recipe. It is easy and delicious. If we have eggs that makes it even better.
