Are you a blogger who would like to join in the Baking fun? Request to join our Facebook Group, or contact Sue from Palatable Pastime, we post monthly on the second Monday. This month we're sharing bakes from Poland! 

I have been leaning towards savory dishes as much as possible, since there are already so many delicious baked goods coming out of this kitchen on a regular basis. I did a little bit of searching and it didn't take me long to come across this amazing casserole! 

This is a warm, cozy, super comforting and delicious dish! The cheesy topping tucks in the tender cabbage, and the bacon works so well with everything - the potato adds a bit of "stick to your ribs". It's simple, and makes for a very tasty all-in-one side dish. This disappeared super quickly in my house, and we will definitely be making it again.

Kapusta Casserole – Polish Cabbage, Potato, and Bacon Bake

1 pound diced bacon
1 large diced onion
1 (2 1/2-pound) cabbage, cored and coarsely chopped
3 large russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes and parboiled
1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1/2 to 1 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese, Edam, or Gouda

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Dice the bacon into small pieces and cook in a large pot until crisped; remove bacon with a slotted spoon and place on papertowels to drain. 
  3. Stir the onion and cabbage into the grease, and stir to coat. Cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is tender.
  4. Stir in the the parboiled and drained potatoes, salt, pepper, cream, and reserved bacon. Mix until evenly combined. 
  5. Spread into the prepared casserole dish and sprinkle with the cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes, until cheese is golden.

  1. We would LOVE this casserole at my house! Cheese and bacon make everything better!

  2. My mouth is watering. This is a great side dish for when we are having a family dinner. Thanks

  3. Loaded with cheese and bacon , looks sumptuous.

  4. I LOVE all of these recipes that are so comforting and wintery. Can't wait to make this on one of my husband's 'animal days.' He's plant based for all but three meals a week, so I have to spread out all the bacony and cheesy goodness.

  5. Oh my goodness! Anything with cheesy potatoes will land at the top of my list! This sounds delicious.

  6. This is definitely a dish where there wouldn't be any leftovers in my house!

  7. Sounds amazing with all those flavors! Love that cheese topping.

  8. YUM. Gosh, I wish we were still able to do potlucks, cause this would be a perfect dish to make and bring. Of course, I could just make it for myself. Hubby doesn't eat stuff like this.

  9. This looks like such a comforting meal! Perfect for a colder day.

  10. Always cabbage in my fridge, this is like candy to me - TY for sharing!
