Bacon Halushki

Halushki has become a popular dish that I make for the after school kids.  I swear I could make this every week and they never get tired of it. Neither do I for that matter.
 This time I made it with bacon which I have never done before and I think it is the best that I've ever made.  I chopped up 3 heads of cabbage. 

 I sauteed them in bacon grease and seasoned it with salt and pepper, granulated onion and garlic and some of Pensey's Krakow Nights seasoning which is really good stuff.  As the cabbage cooks I add chicken stock.  I fried the bacon, cut it in strips and added it at the end.

 I boiled egg noodles until slightly under cooked and then mixed everything together. Then I ate some for breakfast.

I also made the kids 4 of my cranberry orange cornmeal cakes.  They love this stuff.

I've never heard of halushki, but sounds like it's a good way to get the kids to eat cabbage. Sounds like something I would like, too, as I love stuff sautéed in bacon grease.

We love "bacon cabbage" but I think whole wheat pasta would make it a meal, thanks for sharing and I will check out the Krakow seasoning. BTW is the recipe for the cranberry cornmeal cakes in your archives? thanks.

I've had this only once when my adopted Polish grandma cooked it. But I was about 9 years old. I mean adopted because I adopted her. She lived next door to my real grandmother and taught me so much about cooking. One thing she said was that pork and onions always make cabbage taste much better.

Those cornmeal cakes look delicious!

Have a great day!

I miss proper bacon. I don't like English bacon. Too thick, too not crispy at all. Oh and I would LOVE to try that cake!

'Please sir, may I have some more Halushki?'

Yum--this sounds delicious. Is your corn cake recipe searchable on the blog?

Cabbage is an underrated vegetable. Very healthy and becomes sweet. Ask my Slovak Grandma.
