Noodle Kugel Recipe | Side Dish Casserole | Holiday Casseroles

 Every holiday when ourr 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!
