I was taught to make this by adding a can of pineapple bits or chop up. It really needs the fruit addition I think.

Even my picky eaters loved this casserole. It's a snap to fix and sweet, but not too sweet. Perfect for brunch or make ahead for ready to heat-and-eat breakfasts. Be sure to stir the noodles into the egg/cheese mixture so they get well coated. Yum!

My first attempt at kugel - turned out great! Definitely tasted like a noodle-y custard...very yummy!
