Holushki is a Slovak dish. It is bacon, saurkraut, and potato dumplings. I am sure I lost a lot of you with the word saurkraut. But, if you do like saurkraut then you should really try this one. (Husbands love it :)
First cut the bacon strips into fourths and fry them up. It is much better soft (not crunchy) in this recipe.
While that is frying we use potatoes, flour, & milk to make the dumplings.
Annie shredded the potatoes.
(Get them into the milk fast so they don't turn brown)
Then add the flour, it is really lumpy!
Then you are ready to drop them into a big pot of boiling water.
I use a wooden spoon & cut them into the pot.
The smaller the dumplings the better.
Let them boil for 5 minutes.
Pull them out and rinse them with cold water.
Dump them into the bacon pan (I like to a little of the bacon grease & some butter)
Add the drained saurkraut.
Stir & enjoy!
It is even better a few hours later when the flavors have all soaked in!
I keep all my family recipes in this little photo album a friend gave me for my wedding. (Thanks Pam)
This recipe book would be a great Christmas presents for daughters! You don't have to fill it all up...just include a few & they can add to it as the years go by! Even little girls would like their own recipe books! I might just have to start one for Annie this year & put her first recipe as Holushki, she loves it too!
