kugelIt is that time of the year.  Kugel time.  What is Yom Kippur without one?  It is delicious and honestly decadent.  Here is my recipe for a big crowd.

2 8 ounce bags of thick egg noodles

1 stick unsalted butter

24 ounces cottage cheese

24 ounces sour cream

10 eggs (just beat them up so that the yolks are broken up)

2 tbsp. vanilla

cinnamon/sugar mixture

Boil the noodles until they are al dente and drain.  Toss a stick of butter into the pot that you just drained the noodles from.  Let that melt and then toss the noodles back in.  Put in the cottage cheese, sour cream, eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly.  Put in a large baking dish that has been greased.  Take the cinnamon/sugar mixture and shake over the top until it is coated.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to an hour.  It should be slightly firm and browned on top.  Serve hot or at room temperature.

    I love recipes like this…Sometimes things don’t need to be re-imagined.

      certainly not kugel.

    There’s just something about tradition through food. And who doesn’t love carbs hanging out in a custard bath…Definitely not YK without a kugel.
