I've had a box of matzo farfel that I didn't know what to do with and looked for a recipe that wouldn't end up in the trash since my family finds many Passover foods pretty boring. Well, this kugel was OUTSTANDING!! It surpassed all of my expectations. My husband and kids loved it as well. Definitely a winner. I followed the recipe exactly expect instead of 6 eggs, I used 2 whole eggs and 3/4 of a cup of egg whites. It was perfect!!! Thank you Sarit for another fabulous recipe!!!!

Very, very nice! I followed the directions & came up with a great-tasting kugel! Of course, I didn't think 1/2 cup of raisins was enough, so I jacked it up a little! LOVE THOSE RAISINS! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for an adopted chef of mine in this Spring's PAC]
