What To Serve With Haluski – 11 Delicious Side Dishes

If you’re wondering what to serve with your haluski, you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, I list 11 of the most popular side dishes for haluski.

In a rush? Here’s the short answer.

The best dishes to serve with haluski are ground beef stroganoff, pierogies, stuffed cabbage rolls, and corned beef. Try garlic bread, Swedish meatballs, or jaegerschnitzel for unusual but tasty choices. You can also serve pan-fried cod, baked chicken thighs, or green bean almondine. 

Ready? Let’s jump right in.

Ground beef stroganoff

You’re missing out if you haven’t had ground beef stroganoff and haluski. 

Just imagine your stroganoff’s silky, delicious sauce coating the buttery egg noodles and cabbage. 

It’s pure comfort in a bowl, perfect for a cold winter’s evening.

Plus, it only takes 30 minutes to put together this made-from-scratch ground beef stroganoff.

Pan-fried lemony cod 

Haluski and fish are a traditional pairing during the Lenten season. 

(but you can eat it any time!).

My favorite fish to have with haluski is some meaty cod. It’s got a robust enough texture that it doesn’t get lost in the noodles, and it’s not so fishy tasting that it overwhelms the whole dish. 

Enjoy this pan-fried lemon cod with a side of tartar sauce – yum.

Garlic bread

Want to make your haluski the star of the meal?

Serve it alongside some garlic bread – it’s a classic accompaniment to pasta and noodle dishes.

All you have to do is whip up a delectable garlic butter and smear it over the best crusty bread you can find. 

You don’t need a complicated recipe for the best homemade garlic bread.

And don’t worry about the double carbs – it’s cheat day!

Smoked sausage and peppers skillet

This one-pot dish is not only a feast for your eyes but for your mouth and stomach as well. 

The sausages, bell peppers, onions, and herbs combine to give the dish a smokey, savory flavor that will perk up your haluski. 

Planning to give this dish a try?

Head over to Diethood’s detailed smoked sausage and peppers skillet recipe. 


Try your haluski with a serving of jaegerschnitzel (a pork schnitzel with mushroom sauce) for a satisfying meal.

The crispy fried cutlet adds some texture and protein to your soft noodles, and the mushroom sauce makes sure things don’t get too dry. 

Transport your guests back to their childhood with a  jaegerscnitzel.

Pro tip: some apple slaw on the side will really lift the dish.

Stuffed cabbage rolls

Can’t get enough of cabbage?

This dish involves stuffing cabbage leaves with a beef and rice mixture, then baking them in tomato sauce.

The acidic tomatoes help balance out the dish and cut through all the richness from the haluski noodles and the meat. 

These stuffed cabbage rolls are a bit tricky to make, but one taste, and you’ll see why they’re worth the effort.

And if you don’t eat meat, here’s a vegetarian version.

Baked chicken thighs

Baked chicken thighs are my go-to when I need to whip something up quickly.

It’s a low-effort dish, plus everything comes together in one pan, meaning less mess to clean up after. 

This recipe features lemon, garlic, red pepper flakes, and paprika – so it’s not short on flavor. 

Drizzle the pan juices over the haluski for a super tasty meal.

Corned beef 

Planning to serve haluski for your family dinner?

Complete the meal by making corned beef brisket to go with it. 

Corned beef usually takes hours to make, but using an instant pot significantly reduces your cooking time. 

You’ll get juicy, fork-tender corned beef in just one hour and 20 minutes. 

Check out Lyuba’s instant pot corned beef.

Vegetarian Swedish meatballs 

I normally have my Swedish meatballs with mash, but they’re equally as good served over egg noodles. 

This dish’s creamy gravy will cling to your noodles and cabbage, making them even tastier. 

The meatballs are usually made with a pork and beef mixture, but you can also use turkey for a leaner option. 

Or use mushrooms like in this recipe for a vegetarian twist.


Pierogi dumplings are traditionally filled with mashed potatoes and cheese and then boiled.

They’re readily available in the frozen section of any Polish supermarket.

But making them at home is way more fun. 

Check out Salt and Baker’s recipe for an in-depth guide to making your own pierogies.

Pssst… Not a fan of the potato filling? Fill your dumplings with sauerkraut or wild mushrooms instead.

Green bean almondine

Need a quick, easy, and healthy dish to go with your haluski? 

Look no further than this green bean almondine. 

You have crisp-tender green beans loaded with nutty, buttery flavors. 

These green beans with browned butter almondine are ready in just 10 minutes – so they’re a perfect last-minute addition to your dinner table.
