From David and Angela’s Kitchen

My wife, Angela, and I are big fans of the television show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”. Host Guy Fieri did a show on Kelly O’s Diner and we fell in love with her “Haluski” recipe. I remember having a similar dish when I lived (briefly) in Cicero, Illinois in the heart of a Polish neighborhood. Ethnic foods like this are aromatic, unique and fun to cook. Your kitchen will smell great and its a fun meal to cook with your family.
Kelly O’s Haluski Recipe
1 Head of green cabbage (core removed and leaves separated)
1 Stick of unsalted butter
2 Large Spanish onions, julienned
1 Tablespoon garlic salt, divided
1 Pound sliced bacon, cooked, drained and crumbled
5 Cups wide egg noodles, cooked al dente and rinsed in cold water
1 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ Cup grated Romano cheese
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the cabbage leaves and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and julienne.
Melt the butter in a LARGE skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, sprinkle on half of the garlic salt, and let the onions sweat for about 10 minutes, stirring often. Stir in the cabbage and cook, stirring all the while, until the onions and cabbage start to caramelize, about 10 minutes.
Stir in the crumbled bacon, the noodles, the remaining garlic salt, and the pepper. Let the haluski cook for about 5 more minutes until all nice and brown and slightly crunchy. Plate it, and top it with Romano cheese.
