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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dice entire cabbage and onion and add to pan with butter.
  2. Cook over medium heat until the cabbage is wilted.
  3. This will take some time.
  4. Meanwhile, peel and cut potatoes into bite size pieces and boil in a pot of water till soft.
  5. Also, cook egg noodles according to package directions.
  6. Drain the potatoes and the noodles and combine both with the cabbage mixture in a large bowl.
  7. 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!
