2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups milk
4 cups cabbage* -- coarsely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 pound longhorn cheese -- grated
1/4 pound American cheese -- grated
1/2 cup cornflakes
*5 cups if needed
Salt and cook the cabbage with very little water until tender. Drain well. Grease a baking dish. Alternate a layer of cabbage, a layer of grated cheese (a mixture of longhorn and processed), and then a layer of white sauce. Top with a layer of cheese and sprinkle with cornflake crumbs. Bake at 350° until the ingredients are heated through and the cheese is golden brown. Serves: 6
Make medium white sauce by melting butter over low heat, adding flour, and cooking a few minutes. Add milk and stir constantly until thickened (about 10 minutes).
HISTORICAL NOTE: Mrs. Annetta Howard`s Boarding House sits just across the tracks of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in Rowlesburg, WV, once an important railroad center. Mrs. Howard came to Rowlesburg with her doctor-husband, who set up practice while she busied herself running the hotel and dining room. She is still there serving home-cooked meals, but appreciates a call in advance, if you are comming.
