Comfort food...always welcome...always fattening lol.
In my Eastern Pa. area with its multitude of Lithuanian/Slovak people, haluski (pronounced "halushky") is an old favorite. Sold at block parties, parades and church festivals, it's a simple dish to make comprised only of cabbage, onions, noodles and butter. One wouldn't really need a recipe, but as always, I remember that there are plenty of young people just starting out on their own, learning to cook, or newly married young wives who appreciate having a tad of instruction to get started cooking for their husbands and families, and for this reason, here is the recipe.
Slice into strips or one inch chunks a nice sized head of cabbage, and place it in your large sized crock pot.
Next, chop about 8 small to medium size onions, and add them to the cabbage in the crock, and mix together. Add a very small amount of water and sprinkle on a Tablespoon of garlic salt. Cover, and cook down, which will take several hours. The process is much quicker if you cook everything in a regular pot on the stove, but the taste is far better slow-cooked in your crock pot.
When your cabbage is cooked down and tender, (don't forget to stir occasionally) add a pound of real butter. I always use real butter for cooking and eating...margarine in this dish especially, will result in tastelessness and oiliness.
Cook your noodles (1 lb.) I use bow ties to avoid mushiness. Drain and mix into your buttered cabbage/onion mixture. Then just continue cooking at a low temperature...even on warm, to avoid sticking. Soon enough it's a treat ready to indulge in :-)
