Hungarian Cabbage and Noodles

A traditional hungarian dish made of sautéed Haluski Cabbage and Noodles. Haluski (also called Kaposztas Kocka) is just the kind of comfort food I crave around the holidays.

Haluski: Hungarian Cabbage and Noodles with Bacon! #holidays #pasta #bacon #spiritofnatale

The holiday season is often a time we want to celebrate heritage and family traditions. This proves to be a little difficult for me, because I’m most certainly a mutt.

As far as I know, I’m a loose cocktail of native american, english, french and who knows what else. So no distinct cultural traditions stand out.

Growing up in my house, we made up our own traditions around the holidays, instead of relying on those that came before us. I guess that is the American way…

However Lt. Dan has a strong Hungarian heritage, and I love to hear the stories his grandmother tells of their old country customs and special holiday dishes. Being married to a hungarian, I’ve casually adopted hungarian as my cultural tie of choice, so many of the holiday dishes we make stem from Lt. Dan’s great-grandmother’s recipes.

How to Make Haluski: Hungarian Cabbage and Noodles with Bacon! #holidays #pasta #bacon #spiritofnatale

In years past we’ve made hungarian Chicken Paprikas on Christmas Eve as our cozy meal to ring in the Christmas spirit.

Yet another hungarian dish I’m very fond of, Haluski, is much simpler to make and oh so comforting. This traditional cabbage and noodle dish is so easy to prepare, takes no time at all, and requires just 5 ingredients… 6 if you want to garnish it.

With only egg noodles, cabbage, onions, garlic and bacon you’ve got Haluski Cabbage and Noodles, a traditional hungarian peasant dish, that is fit for a king.

Haluski Cabbage and Noodles is a simple dish you can serve on its own this holiday season, or as a hearty side dish to a meaty main course. This no-frills Haluski Cabbage and Noodles is richly bathed in bacon grease, so it is the perfect companion to a roasted bird, braised pork, or even a thick juicy steak.

Yield: 4-6 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Haluski Cabbage and Noodles

Ingredients:

  • 5 ounces thick cut bacon, chopped
  • 5 cups sliced green cabbage (about half a cabbage)
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8.8 ounces package DeLallo Egg Noodles (I used Pappardelle.)
  • Garnish with chopped parsley

Directions:

  1. Place a large pot of salted water over high heat and bring to a boil. Cook the pasta according to DeLallo package instructions. Drain and set aside, reserving 1 cup of the pasta water for later use.
  2. Meanwhile, cut the cabbage and onion in quarters. Sliced into strips. Remove the thickest white sections of the cabbage and keep the thinner white and green layers. Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and saute until crisp. Then add the cabbage and onions. Saute for 5 minutes, then salt and pepper to taste. Toss in the garlic and saute another 5 minutes.
  3. Once the cabbage is tender, toss the pasta in the skillet.  Stir to mix and add a little of the reserved pasta water to help blend the flavors. Taste for salt and pepper, then garnish with fresh chopped parsley. Serve warm.

TIP: For a little extra kick, add some crushed red pepper!

    Things get so busy during the holidays that quick and easy meals are my go-to. My very favorite, and usually our Christmas Eve meal, is a take on hunter’s cabbage. Cabbage, potatoes, onion, garlic and a sliced spicy smoked kielbasa or other sausage cooked in a huge pot on the stove top … sometimes we add kale or black-eyed peas … with a good drizzle of vinegar on mine at the table :)

    I grew up with a Hungarian mother and every summer we went “home” to Alberta to see my grandma and Aunt and Uncles. Being at Grandma’s meant meals with wonderful Hungarian dishes. My grandma was a great cook (so was my mom) and Kaposztas Tasta is what she always called the dish you talk about. My grandma made her own noodles…from very fine soup noodles to funny twisted ones that she used her “cheega beega” to shape. We would always check the bedrooms when we arrived, looking to see if she had made noodles and had them drying on tea towels and table cloths stretched out over the bed. What wonderful memories this recipe brings back….we had this often and loved it. I haven’t made it since my mom passed away in 2001….I think tonight is a good night to make it for supper.

    Our family tradition is to make a ‘crockpot’ Christmas dinner. Turkey tenderloins go into one crock and mashed potatoes to warm up(made the night before) into another crock. A fresh vegetable rounds out the meal. That way we can all relax and enjoy the day.

When my bf and I celebrated our first Christmas together, I asked him if we should make a turkey or prime rib. His eyes LIT UP and he said, “you can make prime rib?!” He’d only had it in a restaurant, so he was amazed that it could be Christmas dinner. We’ve been making it every year since! :)

    I love making soups during the cold weather and my favorite to make for the holidays is Tuscan Vegetable Soup.

    This cabbage dish sounds wonderful! In between bigger holiday dinners, we like the comfort of chicken and dumplings…maybe it’s a southern thing :)

    Just made this tonight and served as a side dish to baked pork chops. Super delicious and decadent! I ended up using the entire cup of reserved liquid and letting the whole dish simmer together while waiting for the pork chops to finish baking. We will definitely be eating this again!

    I’ve never heard of putting bacon in haluski. I ate it very frequently as a kid, but neither my mom nor my grandma ever used bacon.
