Lokshin Kugel (Noodle Pudding)

Rated as 4.08 out of 5 Stars

"This is a side dish commonly served with roasted chicken for Friday night (Shabbat) dinner. It doesn't have to accompany chicken only, but, as my mother once told us, when she was a child, chicken and noodles were more affordable than other foods. This is a great accompaniment to any meat."

I was disappointed in this. It was too dry, and in spite of all the onion, I thought it lacked flavor.

We made it with fewer onions and in a smaller dish, was tasty.

The recipe should have called for sour creme or something to take away from the dryness.

This was pretty tasty, but I didn't put enough salt and pepper in it. Next time I'll try about 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Also, it was just a bit dry. I think it needs a little liquid, ...
