  1. Snip bacon into small pieces with a scissors and cook in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Cook and stir onion with bacon until translucent, about 5 more minutes; set bacon and onion aside, leaving drippings in the skillet.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain.
  3. Transfer bacon and onion mixture with drippings into the pot used to cook the noodles and cook and stir cabbage until coated with drippings. Cover pot and cook until cabbage is tender, 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Gently stir in noodles and season to taste with salt and black pepper.

I had made some extra wide noodles last week and had some leftover. This was Delish and went perfect with my pork roast! I cooked the bacon, sliced the onions and threw those in. Once they were wilted, I tossed in 1/2 a head of shredded Napa cabbage and sauteed a few more minutes. I did add some celery seed for a little contrast. Next time I would like to try caraway seed instead. Thank you lburger24.

I made this dish and it was delicious! I sauteed the onion, bacon in the butter until onions were translucent and bacon was just starting to crisp, then added the cabbage and cooked it all together until cabbage was very wilted and cooked done. I added more butter when I added the cabbage. After I drained the noodles, I added all the incredients in the stockpot and it came out great! Of course, it's not a heart-healthy dish since you are using bacon grease and butter for seasoning, but still yummy! I will make again.

Per another reviewers suggestion, I used one pot, stirring the cabbage into the bacon & onions mixture. Per another reviewers suggestion, I added caraway seed - brilliant! I also added garlic. My Italian/Irish husband added Parmesan, and I have to admit it was a great enhancement.

Add rinse and drained sourkraut when cooking then when done add stick of butter or oleo. Wonderful good old fashion Halushki

I make halushki (cabbage and noodles) all the time, but usually use turkey kielbasa in place of the bacon and add a bit of butter at the end of cooking right before serving. Today, Italy met Poland when I subbed Johnsonville® mild ground Italian sausage for the bacon. Delish! I still added 2 TBS of butter to finish. Yum. Don't forget to use LOTS of fresh ground black pepper!

5+++. Excellent, easy meal the whole family, including kids, loves. This brought back such good memories! It was a staple on the table of my German great aunts & my nearly daily dinner as a financially strapped, newly iindependent 20 something. In true depression era frugality, my aunts taught me to keep a jar of ham & bacon drippings handy to make this when no meat was available. Serve with black caraway bread. Thank you for reminding me of this scrumptious dish. :-)

This was nothing short of fantastic! My Mom was visiting when I made this and she LOVED it! We all had seconds. I used less noodles than called for, just my own personal preference. I can't wait to do this one again. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Have made this recipe for years and the best noodles to use are Kluski Noodles. Delicious!
