Reviews for Hungarian Cabbage With Noodles

I've made this recipe many times since finding it in Taste of Home in 2000. It is definately comfort food. Hard to believe something with so little ingredients would taste so good. And it can't get much easier to make. Don't change a thing in the recipe and you'll love it and will get many complaints. Oh, and I also agree that the # of servings is way off, unless used as a side dish. Makes a great main dish and it will serve closer to 4.
Good old fashioned comfort food. Perfect when you want something easy and comforting. I served it after sauteing the cabbage and mixing in the noodles and bacon. It didn't even need the sour cream to top it off (good thing because I didn't have any). I haven't made this in ages but its a definite keeper!
Okay, so i already rated this, but just wanted to update. I made it tonight after several years and WOWSERS it is good. Hard to believe something so basic can be so great.
Important note: it says it makes 10 servings. That would only be as a side dish and even then I think it would be tough to get 10 out. I think it is good enough as a main dish (but for company I'd make it a side). As a main, you wouldn't feed more than 4.
About 15 years ago Country Woman was having an anniversary special which included the most requested recipe ever. It was this one! I can't believe that isn't written here! It sounded so simple and boring that I couldn't imagine it would taste good, but how could I not try it if thousands asked for reprints of it? It is AMAZING. Shocking but true. I have made it many times for skeptical friends and all have loved it.
Beware, I have had this fail one or two times because the cabbage I used was soooo watery for some reason. When cooked down, it just filled the pot with water and I had to pour much out, taking the yummy flavour of the bacon drippings with it. So those times it tasted awful. No way of knowing if your cabbage is full of moisture until you begin cooking though. But it has only failed twice and I've made it oodles of times.
