    This dish has all the flavor of traditional pierogies, without the work of making dumplings.

    1/2-3/4 lb of bacon, sliced and chopped
    1 large onion diced
    1 can sauerkraut-27 oz. rinsed and squeezed dry (i use my own homade kraut)
    1 small head cabbage shredded
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    5 cups uncooked uncokked eg noodles
    6 tablespoons butter
    1-1/2 teaspoons salt

    in large skillet or dutch oven,cook bacon til almost crisp. add onion and cook until bacon iscrisp and onion is tender. drain. add sauerkraut, cabbage,and pepper; mix well. cover and simmer for45 minutes.

    meanwhile cook noodles according to package directions; drain. stir the noodles, butter, and salt into the cabbagge mixture. cover and simmer for another 30 minutes. yield 12 servings.

    this is one of my favorite dishes, great for pot luck dinners!!!!!

    DON'T waste that kraut juice!
    Drinking homemade kraut juice has MANY beneficial health attributes.

    Nice dish BTW!
    On my list to make.

    Mushrooms too as a kid and I'm a BOHUNK! a Hobie Picker as it were.

    You MUST eat corned beef and cabbage on St Pattys day regardless of your heritage. It's awesome.
