My grandmother's gentleman friend used to cook this for me quite often and I really loved it! The sweetness of the cabbage is wonderful. This is also a low cost vegetarian meal. Grill or broil a meat for a balanced supper.
- 1 head cabbage
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 4 medium potatoes, like yukon gold
- 1 lb wide egg noodles
- salt and pepper
- Dice entire cabbage and onion and add to pan with butter.
- Cook over medium heat until the cabbage is wilted.
- This will take some time.
- Meanwhile, peel and cut potatoes into bite size pieces and boil in a pot of water till soft.
- Also, cook egg noodles according to package directions.
- Drain the potatoes and the noodles and combine both with the cabbage mixture in a large bowl.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
My Nana always used to make this with Farmer's cheese which she would crumble in at the end. Give it a try. In my opinion a little cheese makes everything better!
I really liked this. My grandmother always made halushki, and so does my mom (for special occasions), and they are of a slovak background. This is the first time I have ever even HEARD of potatoes being in halushki, so I wanted to try it. I made it just as it said to, even with the yukon gold potatoes. The only thing I would do differently is to season the potatoes themselves right before mixing with the other ingredients. I wanted to halve the recipe, but couldn't think of what I'd do with the other half head of cabbage! Instead of halving it, I would suggest (and will try next time) reducing the amount of noodles. This really makes a lot. I love old-world style recipes. I enjoyed this.
Being from PA, melting pot of backgrounds that it is, I have enjoyed Halushki most of my life. The above recipe is about perfect. I jazz mine up w/a bit of soy sauce and also add some olive oil to the cabbage & onions once they have sauteed in the butter. Play with this recipe and make it your own. It's a terrific dish!
