Baked Cabbage

This recipe is my husband's mom's recipe.

Baked Cabbage

1 head of cabbage, cut up
8 ounces Velveeta, cubed
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1 cup bread crumbs
2 Tablespoons butter or olive oil

Bring large pot of water to boil.  Add cabbage.  Cover and cook for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile melt the butter and mix with breadcrumbs or mix the olive oil and breadcrumbs together. Set aside.
Make cheese sauce with butter, flour, salt, milk and Velveeta.  Start by melting butter, adding in flour, then slowly adding milk, stirring until it begins to thicken.  Melt in the cheese. It will seem runny but will thicken as it bakes.
Drain cabbage.
Dump half of the cabbage into a 9x13" baking dish. Pour 1/2 of the cheese sauce over.  Repeat layers. 
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. It's ok to have color like this.  It's flavor as my husband would say.
Top with buttered breadcrumbs and bake for 15 more minutes.
