Makeover Sweet Kugel Recipe

This is a traditional recipe I make for the holidays. My close friend and I used to bake together until she moved 1,300 miles away. Now when I make this dish, I’m reminded of our time together. —Eileen Wolf, Abington, Pennsylvania

"I use yolk noodles because they are more traditional and nutritious . Also, cottage cheese is a good substitute. Mix it all up with corn flakes and canned pineapple. You can use the butter and eggs if you want but you may not need sugar if you get the sweetened canned pineapple with juice."
