What really brought me to this recipe is that it uses uncooked noodles. The standing time is very important, because if you are too impatient the noodles will come out a little too al dente to your liking.
This simple, easy, consistent noodle kugel was named "Yellow Kugel" by our former boarder (and still friend), Dvora, who had the bad fortune to live with us when I was pregnant with our third kid, and therefore NOT in the mood to cook. I was still able to handle this, so we ate a lot of it. Fortunately, Dvora didn't mind. (Me either) Adapted from a recipe in "The Makings of a Meal."
This is a very sweet noodle pudding. Serve this as a sweet side dish like you would a Thanksgiving sweet potato casserole. You may halve this recipe if you like, in which case use 3 medium eggs. Please use mild curry powder in this.
This was my grandma's noodle kugel and is really easy to make. Leftovers are great cold for lunch the next day! It's a lot lighter than many of the other kugels I saw here, but I'm still looking for ways to make it healthier without changing the taste too much. I've already switched the sour cream & cottage cheese to 'light', and the milk to skim. I'd love suggestions for ways to lighten it even more. UPDATE: In an effort to recreate a sweet topping I tasted on another relative's kugel, I came up with a new optional oatmeal topping. I like it a lot better than the cornflakes or plain.
I am a huge fan of Lennie's Bob Newhart's Carrot Mold. We have it at least every other week at our house. For Rosh Hashana I wanted to make something with pumpkin, which is one of the traditional foods eaten on that holiday. We adore the carrot mold so much, I basically just substituted fresh pumpkin for the carrots. It was a hit with family and guests. Perfect for Thanksgiving, or if you just love pumpkin!
I got this recipe from an adorable lady at my new synagogue in FL, she made it for a celebration of her 68th wedding anniversary and it was delicious. i don't know what was better the recipe or the wonderful couple
My mother used to make this for very special dairy meals. I used to think that when I started cooking I would make this all the time, but now I know my mother was right (she always is), this is so rich you should only eat it a few times a year. You have been warned!
