    We LOVE Halushki(how we spell it)! This has been a staple in our house since before I was born- now my kids love it too! In order for this dish to taste SUPREME you have to fry the cabbage with the onion. In fact I put the cabbage in the pan for about 10 minutes before I add the onion. Let the cabbage lightly brown for the most tasty result. Egg noodles are great but you can use Farfalle, Rotini or Elbows. ENJOY this comfort food! We tend to use a lot of pepper and salt for this recipe as well as garlic powder.  -  22 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I love this classic Czech dish. So simple, cheap and comforting. However, I do agree that you should definitely sauté the cabbage along with the onion instead of steaming it separately. Also, the addition of a dollop of sour cream can't be beat. For a heartier dish with additional flavor, we also love to add some sliced kielbasa to sauté in with the onion and cabbage.  -  08 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    A favorite of us Western PA folks! Around here its not holuski if its not dripping in butter. 1/4 cup is NOT enough, unless you want to be eating plain cooked noodles. Start with at least 1 stick of SALTED butter to saute the onions. Use a stock pot when doing this and add the cabbage a little at a time cause it won't cook down in a timely fashion if you add it all at once. Add the noodles into the cabbage and stir in pot and add more butter as needed until it's all coated to your liking. I usually use a total of 1 1/2 sticks to 2 sticks of salted butter. This is also how my Czech grandmother made it.  -  20 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
