Fried chicken often gets all the credit as the best of the fried foods. However, one bite of this city chicken and you’re bound to agree that this Pittsburgh classic is just as good, if not even better. Using tender chunks of pork that are breaded, flash fried, and then baked to perfection- this vintage recipe is another one straight from Nonna’s Italian American kitchen.
Every culture has their own idea of what constitutes real comfort food. This haluski recipe is one of ours. It features savory caramelized cabbage & onion bathed in a rich butter sauce and tossed with rich egg noodles to soak up every ounce of flavor.
This homemade pierogi recipe creates pillowy pockets of dough filled with a fluffy mashed potato center. The tender homemade dough will melt in your mouth. These cheese and potato pierogies are delicious served on their own, made into a casserole, or as a side to dishes like kielbasa and sauerkraut.
Breakfast, lunch, or Christmas dinner- if you’ve ever had Halupki Stuffed Cabbage Rolls you’ll agree the traditional Eastern European dish could be eaten for all three. A blend of beef, sausage, & rice is stuffed into tender cabbage leaves and baked in and drizzled with a sweet, soupy tomato sauce.
