Growing up in South Bend, Indiana, Polish dinner buffets are extremely common at weddings and funerals. Polish noodles are a staple at these events and served alongside Polish sausage, green beans, mashed potatoes and chicken gravy, and fried chicken. While at a Polish meat market, an elderly Polish lady passed this recipe on to me upon request.

Terrific! I grew up in South Bend and cannot find ANY Polish food here in Oregon which compares to that from home, not even at our local St Stan's parish. The only thing to have made this dish better would to have had it made and served by the Polish ladies at St Hedwig hall! Now, if only Eby's shipped kielbasa.... Read More

I grew up in St. Adlaberts parish and watched the cooks (Mrs. B as all us servers called her) make their noodles many times. Yummy. My mom makes them to and her recipe includes adding a 1/2 stick of butter to the broth Read More

I am from South Bend and make these quite often. In addition to this recipe I add about a half a stick or margarine and a can of cream of chicken soup when they are done! This makes them extra creamy! Read More

Awesome recipe! I come from a Polish family in South Bend IN and this recipe made everyone happy! It's the classic noodles we all love at weddings and holiday feasts! I did add a bit more soup base (bought the essenhaus brand at my local Polish market) to give it a bigger punch of flavor. Read More

These were delicious! The soup base is quite salty so I recommend using a reduced sodium chicken broth. I also felt they could use a fresh element so I added some fresh chopped parsley to mine as a garnish. These are super simple and this type of noodle is about as close to a home made one as you are going to get from a package. I will use this recipe often! Read More

I am from South Bend too and sure do miss a good Polish Wedding (and the food). This is the way I traditionally make it as well. Except I add a little bit of yellow food coloring sometimes. This was something my mother in law did to give it great color. Read More
