kugel anyone?

If you are Jewish, yesterday was a day of fasting. The best part of fasting, of course, is breaking the fast. My daughter believes that this is the best Jewish meal we have. Breakfast for dinner. Bagels, nova, whitefish salad and of course, kugel. Everyone has their own kugel recipe. It’s almost like Thanksgiving where everyone has their own families particular type of stuffing which is of course “the best”. My Grandmother was not the best cook but she was a helluva a baker and made a killer kugel. Although she has passed on, we continue to make Sally’s kugel every year. You don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy this recipe. Sweet noodles…what could be bad?

Sally’s Kugel Recipe

12 ounces egg noodles
1 pint sour cream
1 pint cottage cheese
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter
3 eggs

cinnamon and sugar mixed

Optional additions can be raisins, currants or any type of dried fruit. I happen to like currants.

Boil the egg noodles until ready, drain and put back into the pot. Add all the ingredients (make sure the eggs have already been whisked before you put them in). Add any optional ingredients here if wanted. Pour noodle mixture into a 9 by 11 glass greased pan. Sprinkle a cinnamon/sugar mixture over the top, as much as you like. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour or until the top is browned.

    Hi, I’m going to have a go at making kugel. When you say whisk the eggs – do you mean just mix them or whisk them until they form kind of foamy peaks? I’ll send you a picture if it works.
    Thanks for the recipe.

    Just whisk them so they are broken up before you pour them in.

    Let me know how it goes…

    Just found your link off of A VC (I guess the hubby) and adding my .02 for kugel. A deli here uses dried apricots, and it’s amazing.

    Childhood memory? Every Friday, the 9th grade class at my school sold bagels. Two salt sticks (I think they’re a Detroit thing), and I was ready for the weekend.

    I’m not Jewish, but my boyfriend is..and I support him all the way, so any recipes such as Kugel, or Potato Latkes would be most appreciated. I’m an old cook, but new to this cuisine. Thank you so much. Ellen

    I have been experimenting with kugel (which I love). I have a great recipe, but it uses cottage cheese. Do you ever use other cheeses? What about yogurt?

    Finally, someone with a recipe that includes sour cream and cottage cheese; my personal favorites as a stand alone treat! This recipe sounds great! If you like really sweet, you might add a teaspoon of vanilla too. Thanks for the recipe.

    I live in Rome, Italy and had a craving for salt sticks which means that I have to make it myself. I put in a search function and got your recipe for Kugel instead. My mother used to make it and so I have copied it and intend to make it.
