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.

  1. I am 82 years old & have loved Haluski since my grandmother from (then) Czechoslovakia made it when I was very young. Then my mom made it for us kids, & then I made it for my kids, & now my sons make it in their own homes! None of us use bacon. We use butter….mmmsooo good!😋

  2. Every Christmas Eve, my family insists on Szekely Gulyas. This evening I am making haluski :)

  3. 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! 

  4. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, vegetable
    shortening, and salt. 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes until baked thru-out.
    You probably have fond childhood memories,
    where you enjoyed having snacks with your friends.

  5. My family has made this for years. We call it NBC noodles bacon cabbage.
    My grandmother was quite young when she married. 13! And my 14 year old grandfather worked in coal mines. They were not Hungarian but considering a Jewish miners wife taught her to make latkes maybe a Hungarian miners wife taught her this?

  6. i make this great dish, but, never thought of adding bacon to it !

    • I am 100 per cent Hungarian and have never heard of this dish. Maybe a variation or maybe the same that just looked different. The name Haluski sounds Polish. Nevertheless it sounds good and will try it. I like cut up cabbage, onion, polish sausage and a little tomato juice or sauce.

I don’t think I’ve ever made the same pasta sauce twice, I’m always throwing in an extra chopped veggies that’ve been neglected in the refrigerator or the last bit of freshly grated parmesan or the last spoonful of sour cream or yogurt or even cream cheese.

  51. Boy id love to win this one.

  52. besides the candy/cookie baking fest, which is fun and involves the whole gang, I have for the past 5 years been getting a huge HoneyBaked Ham and then prepping a couple of salads to go with it… We eat as you like it for a couple of days after Christmas.

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.

  228. 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 :)

  229. Bacon and cabbage is a great combo and it would be really nice in a pasta like this!

  233. My favorite dish is actually a dessert. It is called icebox dessert. It is from my great grandmother. It is a vanilla pudding dessert with a homemade crust that contains pecans. It also has cream cheese and cool whip. What more is there to love. lol

  234. I hand cut homemade egg noodles. A family tradition that no one will let me give up

  235. This looks so great, I wish I could find that pasta locally, I have had to order mine online-none of the mainstream grocery stores seem to carry it. Love it. We’ll be adding this to our menu for next week. Thank you for sharing!!

  236. We’re from the South, so I always look forward to cornbread dressing.

  237. 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!
