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.
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.
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.
