4.In skillet melt margarine add bread crumbs cook stirring about 2 minutes until breadcrumbs are lightly browned. Remove from heat and set aside.
5.As soon as cabbage is done remove from oven and sprinkle with breadcrumbs and cheese over the top.

This is a good way to cook cabbage and it is very tasty and cabbage is a good buy now. This is what we did with the half of the cabbage we had after we used the other half for cold slaw in the last dish.
We served this with Chicken and Black beans over rice. That recipe will be on next post.
