Comfort food is my favorite food. There is nothing like a deliciously warm, comforting recipe on a chilly night or heck any other night for that fact. Cabbage Sausage and Kluski is one of those childhood recipes my father would make every so often during the winter and fall months when my mother worked late. It was so beautiful there would hardly ever be a bite left.
Some of you are asking, what is Kluski? The name “kluski” and “egg noodles” are sometimes used in interchangeable ways. Kluski tends to mean a kind of Polish light dumpling, as well as egg noodles. Confusing right? Yeah, I know kind of like the American Language at times, right?
Did she mean to say Halusky? My answer? No, I did not. You read that correctly, Kluski. I know I tend to share a lot of Southern Dishes and recipes on here that Y’all enjoy. However, I also love sharing other fabulous comfort food recipes we have enjoyed over the years living in different areas.
