make it
Saute onion and celery in butter in 1-quart heavy saucepan until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 325°F. Chop cabbage coarsely. Cook in salted boiling water, uncovered, 5 minutes; drain. Combine bread crumbs, dry milk, water, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Mix in meat.

Pat half of the meat mixture into bottom of an 8 in. square baking pan. Combine cabbage and half of the cheese. Spread over meat. Top with remaining meat mixture. Spoon sauce over all.

Bake 55-60 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle the rest of the cheese. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
Microwave: Prepare meatloaf and sauce as directed above; however, do not spoon sauce over meatloaf. Microwave meatloaf at High 12-16 min, rotating dish 1/2 turn after 6-8 minutes. Spoon sauce over meatloaf; sprinkle with remaining half of cheese. Microwave at High 2-3 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

*Sorry it is such a time-consuming dish for you on-the-go moms, but it has a great home-cooked taste, I feel it's worth it!
