Cabbage Baked with EggsDecember 20th, 2014 in Eggs, Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
Total cooking time: 45min
I don’t know how to call this dish: it is not a cake or pie, but it certainly looks like one; it doesn’t seem to be a casserole, but you can bake it in a casserole pan, it does look similar to quiche, but is not exactly a quiche.
I guess at very least it is an omelette, omelette with cabbage. Yes, I know, an unusual combination, but still pretty tasty.
Cabbage omelette doesn’t require a lot of time to prepare, can be served for breakfast or lunch as a dish on it’s own, but it also can be paired with meats as a side dish.
- 1lb of white cabbage
- 2 oz of butter
- 3 eggs
- 3 tablespoons of mayo
- 5 tablespoons of sour cream
- 6 tablespoons of all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- Salt to taste
How to prepare, step-by-step:
- Prepare ingredients:
- Warm up oven to 350F. Remove hard stem from the cabbage and dice cabbage into bigger pieces; arrange chopped cabbage in ovenproof pan (I used springform, casserole pan will work too):
- Melt butter in microwave and pour it over cabbage:
- Salt to taste, mix, even out, but do not press it down:
- Add mayo and sour cream to a mixing bowl:
- Salt a bit too:
- Add all 3 eggs:
- Mix until homogeneous (I used handheld mixer here):
- Mix in baking powder:
- Spoon by spoon mix in flour:
- Beat ingredients together until well incorporated, batter consistency should allow pouring:
- Pour batter on top of the cabbage layer:
- Cover cabbage with batter completely, don’t mix:
- Put pan to the warmed up oven for 25-30 mins (or until toothpick stuck into the dish comes out clean);
- Then remove pan from the oven:
- Slice it up and serve:
is the baking powder necessary? i lost mine. is it gonna come out good without it?
You can go with baking soda, but can also skip it too
It was very good, the butter was the flavor enhancer for me. I will swap 1T dijon mustard for 1T Mayo next time to give it a little zing.
I don’t know a name for this exact recipe but it is similar in style to a Frittata. It is also similar in concept to a Japanese okonomiyaki.
Hm, yes, it seem similar to Frittata, thanks!
This looks good, I can’t wait to try it after the holidays. Thank you for posting and sharing your recipes with us.
Thank you for trying them out 🙂
