Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the egg noodles, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking and stirring until the onion is golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes more. Combine the noodles, onion, eggs, remaining vegetable oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Pour mixture into an 8-inch square pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until firm, about 35 minutes.

This is a great recipe for a simple side dish. I added some fresh garlic to the onions to give it a bit more flavor and that was nice. It also seems like an easily altered recipe for any additional flavors like meats cheeses and/or vegetables. Read More

I was looking for a dairy-free kugel recipe as I didn't have any of the cottage cheese or cream cheese on hand that most kugel recipes seem to call for and I came across this. I think it baked for 5 minutes too long as the top was a little crispier than I would have liked so next time I will reduce the cooking time or cover it until the last 5 minutes. I was afraid it would be dry so I added an extra egg and 1 T sour cream. The flavor of the browned onions really shone; I might increase those next time. Good simple side dish and a great way to use up leftover egg noodles! Read More

I used butter instead of oil and that is the only change I made. This came out much better than I had anticipated. The noodles on top get nice and crispy and are delicious. I do recommend using butter for more flavor. Simple and delicious! Read More
