Noodle Kugel Recipe | Side Dish Casserole | Holiday Casseroles

 Every Easter our extended family gets together to celebrate the holiday with a large buffet.  Traditionally, each of us usually brings our same specialty every year.  I usually bring Polish Kielbasa, and my niece brings a Noodle Kugel Casserole.  Since Covid, she wasn't able to come, and I wasn't about to suffer Kugel withdrawals, so I learned to make her recipe!

Everyone enjoyed the custard texture - this casserole recipe weighed about 5 pounds I would say, so be sure to bake in a sturdy dish!

It's delish, and the perfect blend of sweetness cinnamon, rich and eggy comfort food!  A Noodle Kugel casserole dish is welcome at any holiday celebration - Thanksgiving - Christmas - New Year's Eve or brunch or party!  Use a warming tray if serving a crowd/

8 large eggs

2 c. sugar

2 c. sour cream

2 c. 4% cottage cheese


3/4 c. cinnamon graham cracker crumbs (about 4 whole crackers)

3 Tbl. butter, melted


1. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain.  Toss with butter, set aside.  In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, sour cream and cottage cheese until well blended.  Stir in noodles.

2. Transfer to a greased 13 inch x 9 inch baking dish.  Combine the cracker crumbs and butter, sprinkle over top.

3. Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160 degrees.  Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.  Serve warm or cold.
