This recipe was handed down from my Polish grandmother. I make it every weekend and a local social organization sells servings as a fund-raiser.
- 15 lbs cabbage
- 5 lbs onions
- 3 -6 cups butter
- 4 (1 lb) bagsextra-broad egg noodles
- celery salt
- garlic powder
- In a large electric roaster (like Hamilton Beach) set on 175 degrees F.
- ,melt 4 sticks butter.
- Coarsely chop cabbage and onions and pack into roaster.
- Roast for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes.
- Continue roasting and prepare noodles (one bag at a time) according to package directions.
- With each bag of prepared noodles, add 1/2 stick of butter, salt, celery salt and garlic powder to taste.
- It takes about 1-1/2 hours to prepare and add all of the noodles.
- Continue roasting for 1 additional hour.
My grandmother also made this wonderful dish.It was the only way she could get her kids to eat cabbage.Same as with my mother,and now with my own kids.This stuff is pure comfort food.
While it's true that this is not a "traditional Haluski" recipe, it certainly lends itself well to preparing this dish for a crowd, and also holds up well for extended warming for parties, buffets, etc. I like it's simplicity. Pairs up nicely with breaded pork chops. I like to think of it as a "simplified version of traditional Haluski":) BTW, I also add ground black pepper and have used margarine instead of butter with excellent results. Thanks for sharing! ~Manda
this is not traditional haluski. Haluski is a czech/polish meal comprising of very small dumplings, almost like gnocchi which is made by pushing a potato dough through a halushki maker which looks like a colander with big holes. It is then commonly served with either cheese, onion, or bacon stirred through.
