Save this creamy cabbage idea for your upcoming cookout

For those looking to cut out their carbs, or just trying to revamp a classic side dish, the recipe below is for you! It takes tender pieces of cabbage and cooks them in a cheese sauce, just like scalloped potatoes. All the decadence, with just a fraction of the calories (just avert your eyes when all that cheese comes in!)
This would do well as a creative little side dish, but pair it with a salad and it could work as a main course as well! And of course you can always play with the cheeses that are used, top it with bread crumbs, or throw in additional veggies such as diced red pepper. This casserole proves that once you go scalloped, there are a million ways you can take it!
