Hungarian Haluski gives you so many textures in one dish. It's a really comforting, affordable dinner.
We’ve been a little busy lately with a birthday, friends visiting and just, you know, life. I finally decided it was time to do a new post. I found some inspiration on Reddit of all places. I’ll admit it was my first time ever exploring that site and got a little lost down the rabbit hole. Somehow I ended up clicking on a thread for “cheap recipe ideas” and came to a recipe for Hungarian Haluski.
Hungarian Haluski is a hearty little side dish which I think would go great with any kind of pork or kielbasa. I used my dutch oven for this since the recipe I found called for the haluski to be baked for 30 mins at 300˚. However, I didn’t find this necessary since everything was already cooked. It’s up to you but the dutch oven does make it much easier to transition from the stove top right to the over if you wanted to do that.
I ended up making my own noodles only because I thought I had purchased egg noodles… only to find out I didn’t. I think it was a happy accident though because the homemade spaetzle made this dish taste extra yummy and it really only took an extra few minutes.
