When I was a kid, I loved veggies and now that I’m older, I love them even more.  Right near the top of my list is cabbage!

Not only does it taste great either raw or cooked, it’s so good for you!  Typically we use it in cabbage rolls or cabbage roll soup but of course it’s great in a nice crunchy coleslaw too!

Cabbage and Noodles (aka Haluskie) is an old Polish dish and it’s one of my favorites from my Grandmother!  Different areas have slightly different versions, Slovak Halusky is more of a potato dumpling while other areas enjoy it as cabbage and noodles.

Regardless of what you call this dish, it’s the perfect way to enjoy the sweet flavors of cabbage and a great way to get a meal on the table on a busy weeknight!

Don’t let the simplicity of this recipe deter you from giving it a try, ingredients don’t have to be fancy to taste amazing!

When seasoning this dish, be generous  with the salt & pepper, it makes this extra good!  I typically use egg noodles in this dish, I love the light fluffy texture and you can use any type of sausage. If you don’t like sausage, feel free to crisp up some bacon (and sub in some of the bacon grease in place of the butter) or skip the meat altogether.

  1. This dish was super delicious the first time I made it, exactly following the recipe. I’ve made it since, using some other readers ‘tweaks’, which brought this already tasty dish to an even higher level. I added in some Caraway Seeds & a Shredded Carrot. WOW, it was then even more amazing! Thank you Holly, & I also thank the other readers for their terrific suggestions. 5 stars

  2. I just made this today with cabbage from my garden and it’s absolutely delicious and easy. I added some hot pepper flakes for some heat and fresh dill for some brightness. This will be a regular in our house for sure5 stars

  3. really good, but, I will next time omit that other tablespoon of olive oil. it was really greasy..4 stars

    1. Delicious! The kids ate until they couldnt stuff in another bite. I used the entire head of cabbage and it was just enough. We like cabbage.5 stars

  4. Pretty good, but needed some kind of a flavor boost. We thought caraway seeds would be interesting.

  5. I made this tonight. I don’t measure so it’s my own fault but I added too many noodles and wish I’d added more cabbage. With saying that it was delicious!

  6. This is great. As I put in the cabbage, I added a 1/4c of water with no-chicken boullion to make it a touch more saucy. Also at the end I added paprika, dill, and garlic powder. Definitely adding this into rotation.

  7. I make fried cabbage a lot so knew I would love this, just happened to have 1/2 a head of cabbage left over from cabbage roll soup, will make again

      1. Made it. I tweaked it just a bit. Switched out peas for shred. carrots. Will make again for sure.5 stars

  8. I tried this recipe because we love the smoked sausage and cabbage theme. I usually double this recipe and have a great cheat that adds in a little moisture and “sauce” there is a frozen bag of peas and mushrooms in a sauce that I add in at the end and the few mushrooms and flavor are great. Extra’s heat up the next day even better. Thanks for the great and simple meal.5 stars

  9. Wonderful recipe. My wife, whose ethnicity is Slovak and Hungarian, said she was surprised how good it was. Absolutely delicious meal. Plenty of leftovers to enjoy another meal. Thank you for publishing this recipe.5 stars
