Susan Viner’s Luckshen Kugel (Dairy)
This recipe is for a large kugel. For a smaller kugel, just use ½ of all ingredients and use a 9 x 13 inch pan.
1 stick butter or margarine
3 bags fine, medium or wide noodles (using fine noodles is a nice change from the traditional kugel recipe)
2 lbs. Cottage cheese
2 pints sour cream
1 package of cheddar or American cheese slices broken into pieces.
¾ lbs. cream cheese (not whipped)
6 jumbo eggs, beaten
2/3 cups – 2/3 cup plus of sugar
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
Topping (optional)
Sweet flake cereal
Melted butter or margarine
Melt butter or margarine in kugel pan in oven and set aside. Boil noodles in large pot, following package directions and drain well. Combine noodles with all but topping ingredients, and mix well. Pour into pan with melted butter or margarine and mix well. Combine sweet flake cereal with just enough melted butter or margarine to coat it. Sprinkle over noodle mixture. Bake at 350° until top is slightly browned and kugel appears cooked through. This could take 1 ½ to 2 hours for the large size.
