Green Cabbage Gratin
Enough stale bread to shred coarsely into 3 cups of bread crumbs
2 cups grated jack cheese
Salt and pepper
4 cups shredded green cabbage
3/4 cups milk
2 well-beaten eggs
Put the oven on broil. Put the coarsely shredded bread in a bowl, sprinkle olive oil and salt over the top and mix to distribute the oil. Spread the bread crumbs on a cookie sheet and put them in the oven, several inches below the broiler. Watch these very carefully -- take them out when they are crisp and browned! You don't want to forget them and end up with burned bread crumbs.
When you take the bread crumbs out of the oven, reduce the heat to 325 degrees. Pour the milk and eggs over the cabbage. Pour the cabbage mixture into a baking pan. Sprinkle salt, pepper and the grated cheese over the top. Finally, sprinkle the bread crumbs over the cheese and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
