What is a kugel? “A baked pudding usually made with potatoes or noodles…generally served as a side dish, though a sweet version with raisins and spices is equally delicious as dessert.” (Epicurous Food Dictionary)
What is a “kugel?” A faux version for those of us who must diet for a living (sighs).
I adapted this sweet version made by the good cook Cara at Cara’s Cravings, but there’s no reason this dish couldn’t be made as a savoury with meat and spices.
Of course, you could also make a sweet version with chocolate and carob chips and…whoa, girl!
I’ll get back to you if I get more creative.
