Tasty Tuesday

 Mom saw someone on facebook post a picture of noodle pudding and it made her drool and she knew that she had to give it a try.

This is the recipe that we used - Grandma Rose's Jewish Noodle Kugel (Luchen Kugel) - This Old Gal - but mom cut it in half and used an 8" x 8" pyrex pan.

And of course, I had to tastetest the ingredients and give them my seal of approval.   I do love cottage cheese!

And I do love noodles!
We didn't add the corn flakes topping but mom did sprinkle cinnamon before she put it in the oven.
Our kugel took 45 minutes to bake.  
In all honesty, we like the kugel the second day much better.  Leaving it covered overnight in the frig made the noodles on top not quite so crusty  and the kugel tasted more moist and flavorful to us.    We give the recipe 8 paws up!

Happy Tuesday, everybuddy!

Love ya lots♥


  1. Now you have us drooling!

    One of us hasn't had kugel in quite some time!

    PeeEssWoo: Now to get one of us to open the cottage cheese that is in the magic cold box!

  2. we love kugels and we will try your kugel too... that looks great and we bet it will become the tastiest tuesday ever....

  3. I've never heard of this tasty treat! It looks mighty delicious.

  4. I learned about Kugel in the 1970's. We had a lovely Jewish family 2 doors up from us at our first house. (She was the neighbor who took me to the ER when I stabbed my finger with a crochet hook.
    Mom might remembers the story that I posted many years ago). Any way her name was.....Cecilia.....too.
    She and her family invited us to many of their celebrations. She often served kugel. I have her recipe.
    Hugs Cecilia

  5. Corn flakes on the top would have made it better the first day, but lots of dishes do taste better the second day of blending their flavors and setting up firmer. I bet that would be good with a protein added.

  6. Anything noodle is pretty yummy! Enjoy!

  7. That sure looks tasty. We might have to try this recipe too.

    ...now, to me, noodles are used in oriental recipes... I am thinking this looks like some sort of pasta....(paused and went searching, yes, durum wheat, so pasta). A long few decades back, when I was at school Domestic Science class, I produced a sweet pasta pudding; thin macaroni, boiled then tossed with stewed apples and sultanas, and topped with wholemeal breadcrumbs, then baked for 15 minutes in hot oven, served with creme fraise or plain yoghurt. Everyone thought I was crazy but it was a hit! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  9. OMD...That Kugal looks soooo nommy! Mama says she hasn't had Kugal since the left the Northeast!

  10. Yummy, Miss Molly. I've never even heard of this dish. I love noodles and cottage cheese too.

    Have a woof woof day. My best to your wonderful mom. ♥

  11. That sounds pretty yummy sweet Molly and if you approve then that's good enough for us.

  12. Lulu: "That looks delicious! I wish I could get a job as a food taster!"

  13. That looks super yummy. Our Oma used to make a noodle salad with cottage cheese and chives, but it wasn't baked. I wish I could remember the recipe.

  14. Thank you Molly and mom for your kind words about Pinot Boy.
    I love egg noodle but never tried this sweet version. It will be my 'next' list for sure.

  15. Yum, we are so glad your mom shared! Lee and Phod

  16. Oh that sounds good! You are the luckiest girl in the world, Molly! You and your mom have so much fun cooking and tasting.

  17. That looks a lovely recipe. You do find some wonderful dishes. I have been trying a few new recipes on DH and the Boys and some they have liked and some not. Trial and error really. Treacle usually gets a try too and she likes all of it!!!! Hugs & Love, Susie & Treacle xxx
