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.
