Kapusta Casserole – Polish Cabbage, Potato, and Bacon Bake for #BakingBloggers
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.
