Halushky is a Ukrainian name for dumplings made of batter or thick dough mixture. Various ingredients are added for tenderness, texture, flavor, and food value. They are served with a stew, or roast and gravy, or as a side dish. Good halushky should be light. Their lightness depends on the proportions used and on the method of cooking them. This standard recipe may be varied as desired. Dry curd cheese is preferred for a filling because a wet, creamy one will melt giving flat and empty varenyky or halushky.

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a boil.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the shredded potatoes, mashed potatoes, egg and onion until well blended. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the potato mixture. The mixture should be thick enough to form into balls.
  3. Process the cottage cheese in a food processor or blender, or run through a sieve. Stir in the egg and salt. Flatten the balls of dough and place a teaspoon of filling into the center. Pinch the dough around the filling to seal it in.
  4. Drop the halushky into rapidly boiling salted water, stir gently once, and cook from 5 to 8 minutes. Remove them to a colander and drain. Place in a serving dish, sprinkle generously with browned butter, and toss lightly. Serve with sour cream.

This sounds good, but not like "halushky" that I'm used to. Halushky is egg noodles sauteed in butter w/ chopped cabbage. what's described here is a vareniki or pierohi (pierogie)

My Grandmother used to make this for me and I never could determine the proper ratio of ingredients. Thanks! This brought back many wonderful memories.

This is interesting! I'm going to try this recipe out for sure! Mainly, I wanted to comment on the review left by Beacon - whatever you are describing there ( was it noodles with cabbage?), is NOT halushky!!!!!!! As a full blooded Ukrainian, born and raised there I can tell you that halushky, as Olga put it best: "... is a Ukrainian name for dumplings made of batter or thick dough mixture. Various ingredients are added for tenderness, texture, flavor, and food value. They are served with a stew, or roast and gravy, or as a side dish". My grandmother used to make soup with halushky (or z halushkamy for those of us that speak Ukrainian :) Personally, I'm always looking for an authentic Ukrainian recipe with a twist - thank you for this one Olga.
