1 large cabbage (about 3 pounds), shredded
1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
2 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons saltine cracker crumbs (optional)


Cook cabbage and 1 teaspoon salt in 2 cups boiling water 8 minutes. Remove from heat, and drain. Place cabbage in a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; whisk in flour. Slowly whisk in milk until smooth. Remove from heat, and whisk in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and cheese, whisking until cheese is melted. Pour cheese mixture evenly over cabbage. Sprinkle evenly with crushed crackers, if desired.

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
