Preheat oven to 350'F.
Spray a shallow baking dish - such as a pie pan - with non-stick baking spray. Spread the sliced cabbage around in the dish as evenly as possible. Scatter sugar, salt and nutmeg over the cabbage and pour in the cream.
Top with bread crumbs in as even a layer as you can make it. Bake at 350'F. for 45 minutes.
NOTE: This is a very flexible dish. It can bake for an hour at 325'F. or a half-hour at 375'F., so it can go into the oven with something else. You may also substitute evaporated skimmed milk for the heavy cream if butterfat is a concern for you, although the dish will not be quite as pleasing in that case.
