Great Grandma Irene's Haluski

Anthony Nicometi Jr


I went over my moms today, and when I walked into her house, The entire place smelled like Cabbage and Bacon. When I asked her what she was making, She just said "Try it" so I did. And it was pretty good, Though I'm not much of a Cabbage fan, I knew a lot of you would enjoy this! This is my Great Grandmothers recipe, She was your stereotypical "Off the Boat" Polish ladies, Who barely spoke a lick of english. She was such a treasure. So in Tribute to my Great Grandmother, I share this recipe with you all, My Great Grandmothers Traditional Haluski! Enjoy :)
