Classic and Creative Kugel Recipes
Kugel is a traditional Jewish dish that ranges somewhere between a baked pudding and casserole. Typically made with egg noodles or potatoes, the flavor can be sweet or savory. Bake up a batch for your next Shabbat or Jewish holiday to enjoy a beloved recipe.
Sweet Noodle Kugel with Dried Cherries
Noodle kugel is a traditional Jewish recipe served for dessert or as a side dish. Although it's made with cottage cheese, it develops a custardy texture as it bakes slowly in a ceramic dish. Here, Grace Parisi uses corn flakes and pecans to make a crunchy topping.
Sweet Potato Noodle Kugel
Bring out the hint of apricot sweetness in this dish with a tender-fruited, peachy American pinot gris.
Matzo, Mushroom, and Onion Kugel
The secret to success here is to first brown the matzo in the oven. This savory dish can replace any stuffing served with turkey.
Eggplant and Green Pepper Kugel
Kugel is traditionally a baked pudding that's made with potato or noodles. This version uses matzo meal and eggplant for a more savory flavor and a heartier texture.
Sweet Vegetable Kugel
Sweet potatoes, carrots, and Gala apples make up the base for this delicious kugel.
