Cottage Cheese Lokshen Kugel

"Taken from "The Joy of Israel" cookbook by Ricky Friesem and Gerry Hornreich. This is a kugel made in heaven, one of the best I have tried yet and I have tried many! This makes a wonderful side dish or a brunch recipe, it's also great to serve at a buffet! This is not an overly-sweet kugel if you want a sweeter kugel then increase the sugar."

  1. Absolutely delicious. It's going to our family Chanukah party tomorrow
  2. Yum! I was looking for a lokshen kugel recipe and was thriled when I saw one posted by Kittencal. Her recipes always turn out delicious. This was simple to prepare and looks really beautiful when cooked. I omitted the sugar sprinkled on top but I think it would taste fine with it too. I also added a pinch of nutmeg to the mixture. Thanks Kittencal!
  3. delicious with sour cream also...don't laugh...try it!
  4. I couldn't find my recipe so I tried this one instead. It was delicious. The only change I made was that I added 1 cup of chopped apples. Thanks for the recipe.
  5. This is a great recipe. I cut the recipe in half because I did not need such a great amount. The Kugel tastes better after it settles in the refrigerator over night.
