Kugel is served often in our region. It's really rich and tastes like cheesecake.


  • 4 cups uncooked egg noodles
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 cups 4% cottage cheese
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  1. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain. Toss with butter; set aside. In a large bowl, beat the eggs for 3-4 minutes or until thickened and lemon-colored. Beat in the cottage cheese, sour cream, milk, cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, vanilla and salt until blended. Stir in noodles.
  2. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Combine the cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle over noodle mixture.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
