My Grandmother's Best Kugel (Noodle Pudding)
Grandma Rose (Seigendorf-Leff) is of Austrian
heritage. Now deceased, this was one of her favorite family recipes
to serve at a family gathering.
8 ounces medium egg noodles, cooked and drained
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
2 cups milk
1 pound cottage cheese
1/2 pound cream cheese
2 cups graham crackers OR
Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal crumbs
Blend sour cream, cream cheese and cottage cheese. Add butter, sugar,
eggs, milk, salt and vanilla.
Spread noodle on the bottom of a greased 91/2 by 13 inch aluminum pan or
glass dish. Pour remaining ingredients over the noodles. Sprinkle
with crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Serves 12 to 15 for breakfast or brunch.
Hint: This recipe freezes really well. Bake in two smaller square
pans and freeze one.
