Although it is sweet enough for dessert, this noodle dish is usually served as a side dish. It's fluffy, creamy, and wonderful!

i doubled this recipe and placed in 9 by 13 inch pan. it was excellent. next time however i would choose to cover the kugel with foil and remove foil about 10-15 minutes before serving so that kugel will brown. Read More

This has a very low key sugar flavor. I sprinkled it with confectionary sugar to sweeten up the final product but would probably add 1/4 cup or more of sugar if serving it as a dessert. Beware of overcooking this; I checked it after 40 minutes and it was barely beginning to brown on top. After another 10 minutes it was golden but also overcooked meaning the egg was shaggy and the noodles dried out. Next time I will look for the middle to be set instead of golden. I was not going to add the sliced pineapple on top but was glad I did both for appearance and overall taste. I substituted in whole maraschino cherries for the candied cherries and they worked fine.

This was WONDERFUL! The whole family loved it. The recipe doesn't say crushed pineapple but the directions mention it. I didn't use the sliced pineapple (forgot it) and nicely decorated the top w/ the cherries. On 1/2 of the kugel I added raisins (1/2 the family likes raisins the other half don't). I used a 16 oz can of crushed pineapple and so glad I did- YUMMY! I also used more noodles than the recipe (about 2-3 oz more). I know it's supposed to be a side dish but I used it as my dessert and it was a smash! ENJOY! Read More

This was a nice lighter version of kugel. I served it at a brunch where there were several kugels. I noticed that this one was gobbled up and everyone finished their portion. I think I will put it in a smaller dish next time. I put foil on for the first thirty minutes but still some of the noodles seemed dry around the edges. A smaller dish may eliminate the dry edges. I left off the cherries. Read More

I was looking for a typical (but good!) noodle kugel and this was it! I made it with LIGHT butter and it came out perfectly fine I'm sure no one would be able to tell the difference. I also added raisins which were a good addition and will add them again next time I make it. I'll probably also try it with egg substitute next time. Read More

Kugel was really good! Everyone absolutely loved it. However I did make a couple changes. I needed to make the kugel parve so I used margarine instead of butter. I thought there was too much liquid in the mixture so I used the whole 12 oz bag of pasta instead of 8oz. I will definately use this recipe again but next time I will add golden raisins to add texture. Also I will use pineapple tidbits instead of slices so that it is easier to cut and every piece of kugel has pineapple. Read More

This was really good. I used whole wheat egg noodles 1/3 C. Agave nectar and a little cornstarch to offset the extra moisture. I didn't expect much but loved it! Read More

This was a really nice easy kugel. I left out the cherries and the pineapple rings and it was plenty sweet. Read More

First kugel I've made or had to eat. My kids loved it. I did add a pinch of salt to balance the sweetness from the pineapple. I'm bringing it to a potluck tomorrow so I hope it goes over well Read More
