We all need a few simple, low-cost meals in our repertoire and Haluski is a perfect addition. Cabbage, onions and noodles. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. And despite the humble ingredients, haluski is remarkably delicious.

This version is vegetarian but bacon is a common addition. Traditionally, haluski is made with homemade noodles and that would definitely take this up a notch. However, packaged noodles work just fine and make for a super easy meal.
- 1 stick butter, divided
- 1 onion, sliced or chopped as desired
- 1 head cabbage, sliced and cut into bite-size pieces
- 8-12 oz. package egg noodles
- salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder to taste
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add cabbage and about 1/4 cup of water. Cover and cook ten minutes.
Season to taste with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Add two more tablespoons of butter and more water if necessary. Cover and cook another ten minutes or until cabbage is tender.
Meanwhile, bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles according to package directions. Drain well and return to pot. Stir in two tablespoons butter.
Add onion and cabbage mixture plus remaining two tablespoons butter to noodles and combine well. Taste and adjust seasonings.
It’s actually surprising that these few simple ingredients combine to create such a delicious dish. It’s perfect comfort food.
- cooked, crumbled bacon, sliced smoked sausage or diced ham
- use fresh, minced garlic instead of garlic powder
I served it with steamed peas and cooked apples. A dollop of sour cream on top would be tasty.
Place leftover haluski in a buttered baking dish, add a layer of peas (or corn or mixed veggies), cut up cooked hot dogs (or ham or smoked sausage), top with grated cheese and bake.
