This Noodle Kugel is a Sweet and Savory Side Dish

Kugel is a traditional Eastern European Jewish dish eaten at large celebrations and holidays. The dish can be made with either noodles or potatoes, the noodle version being on the sweeter side, but still served with the meal. Kugel is a great way to add a new type of side dish to your dinner party and serve up something unexpected yet delicious.


For this noodle kugel, the key ingredient is wide egg noodles. These noodles are cooked and baked, giving the kugel a crispy exterior, and combined with the other ingredients, a soft and chewy inside.
