    Oh Jenny, Came across your YouTube videos just by scrolling and I have so thoroughly enjoyed every one of them especially those on cooking ~ Polish. Parents deceased and now also a widow watching you cook online brings back so many wonderful memories- mama being Polish and daddy Ukrainian. Thank you. I have picked up ideas for changing my recipes that are similar to yours. And the hope and joy I once knew are renewed thanks to your cooking shows. It was such a surprise to find you online…I have told many people to watch you for inspiration and information on Polish cooking. Your humor is an added perk!

    My Slovak grandmother made a similar dish except she used dumplings rather than egg noodles. Will give the noodles a try. Loved her cooking!!!

  8. Marcy

    I make something similar to that. I add pierogi to the cabbage and fry it all together.

  9. Belle

    My husband LOVES haluski! I sprinkle in bacon on mine though 🙂

  10. Janet

    You need a cooking show on TV, cooking channel! Start by going on a
    Cooking with one of the famous cooks. You’ll knock them dead! Your personality is so funny…please, promise, I’ll be so devoted to you.
    Or start a new one, come cook with home cooks in our homes, I have a bunch of great recipes up my sleeve..instead of diners, drive-ins, and dives,
    Moms, masters, and measures…you know what I mean? We can come up with something funominal …haha

    Hi Jenny, I truly appreciate the Polish recipes you publish.. I have fond memories of eating haluski at Polish wedding dinners. I learned the recipe acouple of years ago and like to toss in some keilbasa for a one pot meal.
    Thanks for the vides and recipes.

  12. Theodore Rossino

    Jenny, Will you ever publish on FACEBOOK again. Thank you,

  13. Zoria

    Thank you Jenny. I am making this tonight using your sauerkraut version. I love sauerkraut!

    Dear lovely Jenny,

    I hail from the coal region of Eastern Penna. My grandmother was a

    Lithuanian, we always had some sort of ” Stick to the Ribs ” dish. I miss

    that type of cooking. Good, wholesome, filling. My favorites are BLINIES,

    Potato bread with bacon strips, SOUSE & Blood pudding. Maybe you

    could do one of those recipes sometime.

    Very Respectfully & Sincerely

      Marty, blinies are called nalesniki (nah-leh-shnee-kee) in Polish. Lots of recipes for both out there on the Web, but I would love to make Jenny’s recipe for them. (Don’t think it’s on JCC yet.)
      Blinies and nalesniki are quite similar to French crepe Suzette. Yum.

      • D. Lynn Carmichael (aka Danusia)

        Whoops, make that, blini or blinis …
        Either way, I would like some in the plural right now!!

    Hi Jenny!
    I have your cookbook and am wondering if I were to mail it to you if you would sign it. Return paid postage of course.
    It would make it so much more special when my daughter inherits it!
    She has MS so we really appreciate your healthy recipes!
    I have a collection of cookbooks but your recipes are my go-tos!
    Thanks for your consideration,
    Have a healthy, safe, blessed day

    • Jenny Can Cook

      You should know that the recipes in my cookbook are not the same way I make them today. I am a better cook today so I have posted most of the recipes from the book here on this website in their updated, improved, and simpler formats. So I encourage you to use the website over the book for recipes. As a keepsake I would be happy to send you a signed book. Please send your mailing address and to whom you would like it signed and send it through the “Your Photos” link so it won’t be public:

      • Susanne

        I love your videos. When I get depressed at times I watch your videos andalways feel better. You are hilarious. I wish you would do more. You are very kind to send that lady a signed cookbook for her ill daughter. God Bless

  16. Bill

    Good recipe Jenny, thanks. To make it even easier replace the egg noodles with a couple packs of Top Raman noodles & 3/4 cup water for each packet. Break up the noodles & stir them into the cabbage, cook until they soak up most of the water, about 2 minutes.

  17. Sharon

    I’ve been making this for 45 years. However, I use a 16 oz bag of noodles and substitute the cabbage with a large jar of sauerkraut, drained. I also add 2 links of smoked Polish sausage cut into thin slices.

    • Angelface

      That’s my favorite! I’m just curious, Are you part of Germany?

  18. Janetr

    You are a gem! Thanks for making all your recipes so cook friendly!

  19. Krystyna

    You are a hilarious lady. Thanks for making your recipes so user friendly.
    The one comment about your recipes is that I would love to see a calorie breakdown.

  20. Eva Hammoud

    They are cold Łazanki😁

    • Alice

      I read that in Polish this dish is called łazanka. Haluski is the Czech name-can anyone else verify this?
      I have made it four times in the last two months. Everyone loves it with a little bacon crumbled in. Delicious comfort food.

  21. Amrie

    Jenny, I am so pleased that you posted this recipe. Definitely a Polish staple and you make things so easy. Love your recipes.

  22. Antoinette

    Hi Jenny!
    I love your recipes and your videos!! I also have your cookbook. Everything is just so delicious and easy to make. Thank you so much!!


  23. Petronila

  24. Donna

    I’ve always loved cabbage and noodles cooked together but didn’t know it was actually a thing. Definitely going to try this easy recipe. It sounds delicious.
