Hungarian Cabbage & Noodles

Some people use this as a main dish. I use it as a side dish. My husband is a meat & taters man, so he has to have meat with his meal. This dish goes well with meatloaf.

My husband LOVES this dish! His grandma is hungarian and grandpa was german. He refers to it (I know I'm butchering the spelling) as Kratschwackle, which I'm pretty sure is the German version, as it was his grandpa's favorite. We've never tried it with bacon before (he tried to remember the recipe from his Granny making it...I don't know why we haven't just asked her yet!) I will definitely give that a go next time. He usually has me grate the cabbage. Our kids eat this like there's no tomorrow. Thanks for posting the recipe!

This was a hearty and very rich dish. Perfect comfort food for a cold day. Thank you for sharing.

What a great meal all by itself, or with sausage and pickled beets. I used light sour cream, wholewheat noodles and Louis Rich turkey bacon and it was so flavorful. My husband raved about it and it was even better the next day. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
