Haluski (Fried Cabbage and Noodles)

Haluski - A simple,rustic and traditional dish made with fried cabbage and noodles.  Pure, delicious comfort food!
If you’re a regular here on A Family Feast, then you’ve probably become quite accustomed to seeing recipes that originated from my husband Jack’s side of the family! But today, we’re sharing a recipe inspired by MY side of the family – this simple and delicious dish called Haluski, or Fried Cabbage and Noodles.

I grew up in a large household with both parents from Polish descent. Every Sunday afternoon was spent visiting my Babci and Dzaidzi (my grandmother and grandfather on my mother’s side). As part of the visit we always enjoyed a simple and very delicious meal – including dishes like this fried cabbage and noodles!

Haluski - A simple,rustic and traditional dish made with fried cabbage and noodles.  Pure, delicious comfort food!

Almost everyone who grew up in a family of Eastern European descent has enjoyed this simple, rustic dish – cabbage and onions fried in butter (I think it’s best when the cabbage and onions are slightly browned and caramelized), then tossed with egg noodles, salt and pepper. Some versions also include caraway seed, slices of kielbasa, or salt pork – but we decided to use pancetta, which added really fantastic flavor to the traditional haluski recipe!

This is pure, delicious comfort food – and it’s best with a great egg noodle like No Yolks®!

  45. I use No Yolks all the time for a passed-down family favorite that we call “Noodle Pleaser”. In fact, the hubby and I just finished the leftovers last night. It’s a layered dish made of spaghetti sauce with hamburger and other seasonings, sour cream & cream cheese, No Yolks (of course) and topped with cheddar cheese. Oh so good!

  46. My favorite recipe using No Yolks noodles is definitely haluski. I make it alot especially in the cold winter months. Never used pancetta though, will have to try it the next time!

  47. My grandmother “Babba” and mother made this all the time but instead of noodles they made cottage cheese/egg drop dumplings (teaspoon full into boiling water). I loved it. Thanks for reminding me to make it again. They called it halushki.

  48. Love Beef Stroganoff.

  49. I’m Hungarian and growing up we had this dish many times. I don’t think I’ve had it in 40 years. Wow. Does it bring back memories. I haven’t thought about it, but now I’m going to make it very soon. Thanks for the recipe. I always loved it.

  155. I am so sorry but you probably don’t know what Haluski are. I am from Slovakia and Halušky are our national food. This differs a lot from Halušky. Mainly, Halušky aren’t noodles or anything you can buy in a shop. If you want to eat Halušky you should make it at home. It is made by flour, boiled grated potatoes and salt. We serve it with Bryndza (special sheep cheese) and roasted bacon. Then it looks like this for example : http://www.afamilyfeast.com/haluski-fried-cabbage-noodles/#comments

    • Thank you for writing to us Lucia! You are correct – our recipe is definitely more of an ‘Americanized’ and easier version of the recipe made with packaged noodles. The authentic recipe sounds amazing! Thanks so much for taking the time to write to us today!

  156. Oh my gosh, my mom and grandma used to make this using homemade noodles. Love this stuff!
    Teresa recently posted…35 Chicken CasserolesMy Profile

  157. this is one of our favorite dishes, but I do leave it in the pan a lot longer, until some of the noodles turn golden brown and have slight crunch to them. Everything becomes caramelized. Adding some pancetta sounds like a delicious idea!

  158. Sometimes my grandma would put sugar in instead of salt and pepper, for lunch… so good

  159. Outstanding! This will be on the menu tomorrow night! 🙂 Thank you!

  160. Yum! Growing up, we had haluski all the time! I recently started making this again. Now I must try with no yolk noodles…I’m sure it will be just as delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe so others can now try this.

  161. Noodles, cottage cheese and onion’s, this is delicious

  162. Whats the nutritional facts?

    • Hi Leigh – We don’t calculate the nutritional information for our recipes. But there are lots of free online tools to calculate the nutritional information such as MyFitnessPal, etc – Hope that helps!

  163. Tried this dish last night. Live in Metro detroit and was at a pittsburg Steelers bar. One of the ladies there made it. Said it was a traditional dish when the steelers were in the play offs.
    My favorite no yolk noodle dish is a easy beef stroganoff lean beef tip caramelized onion a can our too of crean of mushroom simmer then add. A scoop of sour cream and serve over the no yolk wide egg noodles.

  164. I just made the Haluski for dinner. My husband who only saws something when he doesn’t like something, filled up his plate a second time and said ” This is good,” with a smile. We are not even Polish! I did not have pancetta, so I sliced up a ham steak thinly. Your cooking time was perfect, not under nor over cooked! I turned the heat up high to brown it a bit before I added the noodles.

    We will definitely be having this again! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!

    • Hi Patricia! Thank you so much for writing to us – we love hearing stories like yours and we’re thrilled that you (and your husband!) enjoyed the recipe. Ham is a great substitute – sounds delicious!

  165. I’m confused, is this s a recipe site or a commercial for no yolk noodles???

    • Hi Bob – Thanks for your question! Our blog is free for you to visit and use our recipes as much as you’d like. Having said that, we do occasional sponsored posts (like this one) for which we are paid – this helps offset the expenses of providing free recipe access to our readers. We always state upfront when the post is sponsored so you can skip right down the recipe if you’d like. Hope that helps explain things – and I hope you enjoy the recipe!

  166. Linda Wright :

    My family likes beef stroganoff. Thanks.

  167. Justice discovered this dish at Gio’s BBQ near Clearfield, PA, and I asked my girlfriend to learn how to make it. This recipe is great!
