World’s Best Noodle Kugel!

Every Jewish feast includes a kugel of some sort, and this is our family’s favorite.  It is technically a side dish, but makes a great dessert, too.

“I try and find any excuse to make this recipe, as it is one of my favorites. With the perfect combination of crunchy and sweet, you will never want to use another kugel recipe again.” — minichef at

    1. I know!!! The first time I heard of this, my taste buds kinda balked and said, “No Way! I’m not even gonna TRY that!” But I overcame my preconceptions and made it for an oneg (after-service snack and visiting time). I figured that if I didn’t like it, maybe the other people would eat it for me, LOL! Turns out that hubby John and I LOVE this stuff! It ends up having a very different consistency than you expect, and it is really delicious. We love to warm it up and have it for breakfast, too. I have to be careful not to make it too often, because it’s very rich and loaded with calories, but when I do make it, it doesn’t last long around here! By the way, the folks at the oneg DID eat it all – and they were just as leery about it at first as you are! They liked it as much as we do. 🙂
