Cook the Book: Noodle Kugel

Kugel always had a place on the table at holiday meals while I was growing up, not only as a side dish but also as a source of entertainment. This seemingly simple casserole was an endless topic of debate. Which was better, sweet or savory? Who made the best version? Was noodle kugel superior to potato kugel? There was even controversy about how to pronounce the actual word.

This recipe for Noodle Kugel, adapted from Lari Robling's Endangered Recipes, can be tweaked to your own specifications. I like to add dried fruits and nutmeg to mine. Kugel might be a little sweeter than the side dishes that we are used to, but don't be put off, I made this recipe recently as an accompaniment to brisket and it was fantastic.
