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.

    My parents lived in Hungary for several years and my oldest sister was born there. But they were born in Greece, so I make more Greek food. But this is Hungarian comfort food if you ask me! I should make this for my own family!

    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 favorite holiday dish is PRIME RIB! It’s something we’ve done for years, ever since I was a kid. 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! :)

    Actually to make this authentic you need to add BROWNED butter at the end. There is also a potato halushki recipe where you use raw grated potatoes with egg and flour to make a very thick dough. Spoon this in small chunks into boiling water to cook about 5 minutes. Toss with the cabbage and brown butter! the best!
