Noodle Kugel

 My Facebook status:  
I just popped a noodle kugel into the oven. It has been ages since I made one, so I am excited for dinner.

Based on the comments I received, if you didn't grow up eating noodle kugel, the concept sounds wonky. So, for all of you kugel deprived folk (it is YUMMY), here is how I make it.

I also like it with raisins, instead of peaches. It is equally good made with more eggs, for a firmer kugel. Full fat dairy products are even better, producing a creamier kugel, but 2% cottage cheese, and fat-free sour cream work just fine.

Now, all of my friends from childhood, will weigh in with their own versions. No matter how you make it, noodle kugel is a great comfort food. It is good served cold, or hot. It also freezes well.

The Ingredients (plus some butter, and cereal)

Boil  16 oz of noodles al dente.

Toss with a few tablespoons of butter.

Mix in 16 oz of sour cream, and two beaten eggs (or more, if you like).

Add the 24 oz cottage cheese, and mix well.

Sprinkle on some cinnamon, and mix.

Spread half the mixture in a buttered 9'x13' pan.

Drain, and chop the peaches. Spread on top of the noodle mixture in pan, and top with remaining noodle mixture.

Bake or add a topping, if you desire.

 Cinnamon Life looks like a good plan.

Crush the cereal, and sprinkle over the unbaked kugel.

Ready for baking

Bake 45-60 minutes, until it is a bit crisp on top, and bubbly hot.

  1. This looks so good, Lisa! Where do you come up with these wonderful recipes??? Having eaten at your table, I do think you are one of the best cooks ever. I mean that sincerely. You are.

    And I miss you, too.

    Lots of craziness here. I have had non stop meetings and finally spent one peaceful night having dinner with young Addie. I was babysitting whicn I enjoy doing with these kids. We went out and then came back and "talked." She's eleven going on forty. Very mature and very smart. She's a child you love to keep because she is interested in decorating and things we like.

    Wish you were here (I feel like this is a postcard)...
