Halushki (aka Fried Cabbage and Noodles) is traditional dish of Polish and Slovak heritage, traditionally braised cabbage and egg noodles smothered in butter. Growing up, it was a staple at my grandmother’s dinner table, and today it’s one of my favorite comfort foods.
Fried Cabbage and Noodles was one of the meals that I missed the most, when switching to a Paleo/Grain-Free/Gluten-Free lifestyle. And when I finally created my World’s Best Paleo Pasta Dough, it was one of the first dishes I made noodles for.
There’s something so special about homemade noodles paired with crispy bacon and sweet cabbage that instantly makes me happy. Not only because it’s one of the dishes that my Grandma Elsie made frequently, but also because is was one of the first dishes I remember cooking that my father-in-law enjoyed when Ray and I first started dating.
Food has the power to take you back in time, even if just for a minute.
