Denise's notes for this recipe:
This is comfort food at its best! I believe it's origin is Hungarian and I love to serve it with keilbasa and rye bread.

This was a Lenten staple growing up. Now it's just a staple! I now cook up a few strips of bacon and saute the onion in the grease. Dice the bacon and toss it in with the cabbage.

OOOOHHHHH RYE BREAD AND KOLBASZ (hungarian).. I grew up on that!! Hi Denise,, I was wondering if you cook the keilbasa at all or if you just take it from the fridge and place it on the plate. I am going to have it this way tonight!! It will take me back to my childhood, for sure!!!! :) Thanks for posting!!!

If I serve keilbasa with this (and I usually do), I simmer it in water in a seperate pot while I'm making the Haluska. Then I slice keilbasa and serve it atop a heaping platter of Haluska. Be sure to have plenty of rye bread on the side!

OK.. first, I have to say mm mmm mmmm.. I made this last night and it was a big hit!!!! Everyone loved it,, and I have some finicky kids here!! As the cabbage and noodles were simmering.... I sliced up the Kolbasz and added them to a buttered pan to brown. Then added it to the cabbage and noodles when they were done!! I also served it with sour cream on the side!!!
I forgot the rye bread!!! :( Won't make that mistake next time!! Gotta have the rye bread!!!!
Thank you Denise!!!!! :)
