Thursday Things to Eat | Nana's Cheese Haluski

Growing up poor, my mother and grandmother cooked us traditional foods that they grew up with that helped feed many empty tummies. This is one of those meals that left us filled to the rim.

Of course now when you hear the word Haluski it conjures up a bow-tie pasta noodle with cabbage dish, which is delicious and great too.

For those of us who spend two hours cooking the "real" Haluski we just smile and say that other kind of Haluski is for quick meals.

We had both Cheese Haluski as well as Cabbage Haluski made this, homemade way. My grandmother made a Prune too but I digress.

Here is how I made the Cheese Haluski for dinner tonight. Oh, and shhh, don't tell Nana that I am sharing her recipe.
