Noodle Kugel (This is a side dish)

There are different types of kugel. This is a cheese kugel.

12 oz pkg of wide egg noodles
2 large eggs
1/4 c. white sugar
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 c. lowfat cottage cheese*
8 oz. sour cream
salt & pepper to taste
Optional: 1 c. raisins

Preheat oven to 350 deg. Spray a 1 quart baking dish with non-stick spray.

Cook noodles per package directions. Drain.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together eggs and white sugar. Stir in melted butter, cottage cheese, sour cream, raisins, salt & pepper. Stir in noodles.

Pour into baking dish. Sprinkle the brown sugar on top.

Bake until the top has browned, approx, 40 minutes. Serve warm.


*cottage cheese - When I've been out of cottage cheese, I've substituted shredded mozzarella. It has a completely different taste and somewhat of a different texture, but it's still yummy. Don't add raisins if you substitute the cheese. Everything else remains the same.

For a more traditional kugel, try farmer's cheese - and if you can't find it anywhere, substitute ricotta.

24-ounce wide egg noodles
2 tablespoons butter
2 pounds farmer's cheese (pot cheese is the original but I don't think more than a handful of specialty kosher stores offer it nationwide. Pot cheese is easy to make but that's a whole nuther recipe)
4 beaten eggs
2 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar

Cook noodles til done, drain and rinse in cold water.

In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients (including the noodles)

Pour the mess into a greased 9x13" baking dish

Bake at 350F for around 50 minutes or til top is brown.

You can add raisins, and you can sprinkle the top with cinnamon/sugar for a crunchy sweet crust.

Alternatively, dump some of the mixture in the pan, then sprinkle a tablespoon cinnamon/sugar over the first layer. Then add another layer of mixture, and another tablespoon cinnamon/sugar. If you add raisins, add them along with the cinnamon/sugar in the layering.
