This is just like my late Jewish Mother-in-law made. Thanks for the recipe! I wouldn't change a thing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cooked this tonight with just about no variation on the recipe other than sprinkling a mixture of cinnamon and sugar on top before popping in the over and cooking on 375 for 45-50 minutes. The only variation I might make in the future would be to cover the pan with some tinfoil maybe 40 minutes in to keep the top noodles from getting too crunchy. Other than that, this was absolutely delicious! The raisins and cinnamon kept it from tasting bland and the sugar was just right - not too sweet but just sweet enough to still taste like a treat. I loved this! I will absolutely use it again and again. (PS - I took a clementine I had and sprinkled a teeny bit of juice onto one of my portions and it was really yummy!) :) Read more at: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/dave-lieberman/noodle-kugel-recipe.html#sni-reviews?oc=linkback item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hoy trataremos de cocinar,pero se ve DELICIOSO !si tienen recetas como estas,pls,me dejan saber,feliz dia de accion de gracias ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! I substituted half the white sugar with light brown. I added 4 cubed apples. I reduced the sour cream by half, and added 2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk, and a splash of half and half. I also added half cup chopped walnuts! item not reviewed by moderator and published
would it be possible to adapt this recipe to feed about 200 people? item not reviewed by moderator and published
This kugel is absolutely delicious. I'm a bit snooty when it comes to kugels, and have to say this one is a keeper. Since someone was confused about how long to bake (and yes, the video does state longer than the written recipe), this works for me… bake for 45 minutes, lightly cover with aluminum foil at that point so it doesn't brown too much, then bake an additional 5 minutes - so 50 minutes in total. I also substitute golden raisins, as I think it's a wonderful complement instead of dark raisins. You'll love this recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is so delicious. I mistakenly bought cottage cheese with pineapple. The kugel was so good that I will use pineapple cottage cheese again. Other than that happy mistake, I used all of the called for ingredients. It had just the right amount of sweetness without being over the top sweet. Very easy to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I havent tried it yet, I am making it today. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't make it yet because I'm a bit confused with the recipe. I gave it 3 stars because I had to. I read the recipe and watched the video. They are different! The biggest difference is the cook time. The recipe says 30-45 minutes and the video says bake for 1hr. So how long do I cook it?? There's no mention of shaking cinnamon and sugar on top first as it shows in the video and the recipe says put everything together first while the video says put the liquid ingredients in first, mix together well and then fold in noodles. This may seem like being picky but I'm not a good cook and panic easily. Needless to say most of the recipes I make do not come out as expected. You would think the recipe would be exactly the same as the video, no?? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Dave, you stole my Bubbe's recipe! Yes, there are Kosher for passover noodles. They have been around for at least 40 years. I know Manischewitz makes them. I am sure other companies do as well. I leave out the sugar, cinnamon, and raisins. Instead, I put half of the kugel in the pan, put in a jar of my favorite KP jam (I like Orange Marmalade) and then top with the rest of the noodle mixture. This adds a little more color and flavor to the dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Okay, the kugel is very good, although possibly a bit bland for some tastes. I'm going to add a bit of orange zest on top when I serve it. The recipe doesn't call for salt, but I'd advise putting in half a teaspoon to liven up the flavors. I doubled the recipe which might have some culpability in the blandness. Great recipe though! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is just a great recipe. I've been using this one for a while now and its great!!!! 5 starts!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy, tasty and good, nice alternative to bread pudding, I used 1cup of sugar instead of a half cup that the sweetness not overwhelming. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Just like Grandma's! item not reviewed by moderator and published
A big hit with all at our Chanukah party. I followed the recipe exactly. Thank you Dave! It served 12 easily, with seconds and some left over. Mine required a full 45 minutes at 375. My next iteration will be a bit healthier: my mom used to make kugel with ricotta cheese, and that's what I'll try. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Recipe is fine. I used golden raisins because that is what I remembered. Big mistake in the recipe .... there is no such thing as "Kosher for Passover" noodles. You just don't eat noodles on Passover. This typically is a dish served at Chanukah. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe. My mom passed away and I was trying to replicate her recipe, and I think this did the trick. I added a little vanilla and sprinkled cinnamon & sugar on top. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have made noodle kugel many times in my life. This time my 98 year old mother requested it for a treat. I followed this recipe, but used a Splenda sugar blend instead of sugar. It was so good. Easy and delicious! My mom loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe rocks! Served this at our Chanukah party and my husband said it was the BEST kugel he had ever had. Great news for his non-Jewish wife who had never made a kugel. It is very tasty. I did add a little extra cinnamon. We'll be making this recipe every year. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just made and served this kugel for Hanukkah dinner tonight to rave reviews! Made exactly like the recipe directs and it was great. Will definitely keep this for future use! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very easy and tastes great! I followed the recipe just as it was written but omitted the raisins. This was my first time making kugel for my Jewish boyfriend and it was a success! He said it tasted just like he remembered from when he was little. It took closer to 45 minutes to bake. I will definitely add this to our recipe box to make again. Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Simple and tasty. Exactly what I was looking for. This is a traditional sweet kugel. Many recipes call for 3x this sugar. This tasted great with just a half a cup. Also this serves a lot of people. I think the printed version serves 4 - more like 12 item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely delish! And so easy. I omitted the raisins and just sprinkled sugar and cinnamon on top and baked an additional 5 min. Just love Dave! Wish he was back on the food network. item not reviewed by moderator and published

easy to make, delicious. My family loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I never had a noodle kugel before; I'm a gentile. My wife warned me it might be too sweet for my palate, but this dish was absolutely spot on what I expected. A little sweet, a little savory, rich and firm custard, with crusty noodles around the edges. And the raisins popped in the mouth. A true dining sensation that was splendid along with Dave's sweet and sour brisket and Emirile's potato latkes. So this is Jewish cuisine, shabach! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was just looking for a noodle kugel recipe that seemed like what I had at my grandma's house when I was young... I went through a few and came across the pic and the recipe here and decided that I will try this one for Hanukkah this year. To my shocking "of-course, it only makes sense"-surprise, I looked at the name of the person who submitted the recipe, and I have the same maiden last name: Lieberman!!!! Thank you my long-lost relative! (I have a brother named David Abraham!) ~Lora item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made all the recipes from the Grandmas visit they are wonderful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This seemed like a good combination of other recipes I've read, so I tried it. It is very easy and turned out just fine. But, I think it's too sweet for my taste. I left out the raisins, but kept in the sugar and some of the cinnamon. I added some salt and pepper to balance it out. Next time I'll keep it the same but only put a few TB of sugar and more salt and pepper. Thanks Dave. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The first time I ever had Noodle Kugel was at my place of employment, and I thought it taste great.So when I found the recipe and seen how easy it was to make I could'nt wait to try it.I did not have to change a thing. My son who do not eat raisins enjoy his very own side dish.Leftovers would have been great if there were any lefted over. item not reviewed by moderator and published

No need to wash the pan. Both times I made this recipe, there was not a morsel left over for the next day. Its really easy and turns out great with minimal effort! I used X-Wide Manishevitz noodles and golden raisins. DIANE item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this recipe! I have to be very careful what I eat because of health issues, so I changed just a few things. I use high fiber noodles, fat free cottage cheese and fat free sour cream. Brown sugar instead of white. I also used dried cranberries instead of raisons. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Last time I had this dish I was probably 8 years old. I suddenly realized I was craving it and had pretty much forgotten how it tastes. So, I decided to try this recipe for passover. It could not have turned out more delicious, or be more simple to make! Definitely satisfies my sweet tooth and perfect substitute when you're missing all that bread! I will be making it again and again! My only slight addition was a bit of vanilla extract to enhance the sweet flavor. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Wonderful & very easy. I made two big dishes and substitued canned pineapple for rasins. Also I added a bit of lemon juice and zest. Don't over bake it! We served it at a Sunday brunch for 24 people. It was a hit...everyone wanted the recipe. It kept well on the buffet table. Leftover was very good either warmed or cold for several days (as long as it lasted for my husband and me.) item not reviewed by moderator and published

I halfed the recipe and put in a square baking dish. I also made a few subsitutions-used 10x sugar and 1/3 pnd of noodles. Awesome! I did find this needed a longer cooking time. Perfect when paired with Polly Cohen chicken. item not reviewed by moderator and published
