WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - It's a summer comfort food.

This week, Chef Chris Manning prepares Halusky, a dish originating from eastern Europe that was originally made with dumplings. These days, most recipes call for egg noodles.

Traditionally, the dish has just cabbage, onions, butter, and noodles.
