Kugel is a type of casserole made by Jews for generations. It can be made from either potatoes or noodles. I suspect the reason why it’s so popular is that it tastes good cold or hot. On the holy day of the week, Saturday, Jews are forbidden to light a fire, therefore, they cannot heat up food. Given that people like to eat hot food, kugel is quite popular. Or maybe that is all speculation. Let me know if you know why it is so popular.
If you haven’t tried kugel yet, then I suggest you get on it. Spaghetti and all sorts of pasta are cheap, making this dish very affordable. I recently used leftover turkey and added it to the mixture. This was the first time that I made it in years. It’s delicious and easy to make, so here goes. This recipe is one that my mother has used for years. It’s more of a feeling recipe, feel out how much you want to put in of each ingredient. Have fun with it.
- White Pepper
- Garlic Powder
- Preheat the oven to 350F (176C)
- Fry chopped onions in oil.
- Cook the noodles in water until they are ready.
- Once the noodles and onions are ready, put them in a bowl.
- Add the salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and eggs.
- Mix everything together.
- Put the mix in a baking dish.
- Bake for about 45 to 75 minutes depending on how thick the mixture is. Make sure the top noodles are crispy.
