This pudding is super easy to make, a great dish to bring along for a pot luck, and can be served warm, cold, or reheated. It was my late Mom's recipe that she brought to everyone's home. She was always begged by family and friends to PLEASE make this. It was, and still is, a staple at the holiday table for us.

My family has made/eaten kugel for years. All of them hands down said it was the best they have ever had and asked for the recipe. I recommend you make the following 2 modifications: I used 3 eggs instead of 2. Secondly I used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese. If you use the recipe you can't go wrong! Read More

My children love this sweet noodle kugel! I gave it only 4 stars because I made a bunch of changes - to make it a healthier dinner - I omitted the sour cream and butter and i left out the raisins (my kids don't like them). I added a third egg to ensure the mixture will hold together - very sweet and delicious! UPDATE: I made this for PASSOVER by substituting matzo farfel for the noodles! I used 1 package of farfel soaked it in warm water for about i minute drained it and then continued using the other healthier substitutions mentioned above. Read More

I misplaced my families favorite Kugel recipe that I have been making for years so I reluctanly tried this recipe. My family loved it and it has now become the new family kugel recipe for the holidays. The only change I made was to use 4 cups of sour cream instead of the cottage cheese and an extra egg. It made it fluffier and lighter. Read More

I made this for Rosh Hashana dinner (also made a parve version) and it was delish! Left out the raisins as my husband doesn't like them but other than that stuck to the recipe. Guests loved it I loved it! Read More

This was really easy and great tasting. I used prunes instead of raisins and I think next time I will add 2 more eggs and use half the butter. Read More

This was pretty good as noodle puddings (kugels) go. I find most of them bland and this was no exception but it was pleasantly creamy. Instead of butter I just used a good spritz of PAM. Read More
