Ooh, yummy! The only changes I did was I added mushrooms just before putting it in the oven, I added an extra carrot, I used ground turkey in stead of bacon and mixed it in the dish, and I didn't use any butter. I wished I had covered it for part of the time because I got some really crispy bread crumbs and noodles, but that was okay too. I will definately plan to make this again!

The first time I'd made a Kugel recipe but from reading the list of ingredients I was sufficiently inspired to double the recipe, so the quantities I was mixing then baking were huge! All very satisfying to stash away so many dinners in the freezer – for my parents. Such easy meals for them to take out of the freezer. And I just love this sort of recipe: SO versatile, a license to add a few extra ingredients, which I did. I added some leeks and some red peppers. I’m not sure what sort of noodles others have used, but the ones I used were the thin egg noodles usually added to stir-fries (they’re already cooked), so next time, to reduce the fat content, I’ll skip step one. Only after I had everything ready to go into the oven did I realize I was supposed to have sprinkled the bacon on top of the casserole. I’ll do that next time! The end result, despite my misreading of the instructions was excellent. I loved it and all the family members I served it to – including the hard-to-please-octogenarian-male – loved it! A delicious blend of flavours. A winter evening’s comfort food at its absolute best! Thank you, Rita, for another fabulous recipe!
