Apple Kugel Recipe

My best friend growing up was (and still is) Jewish. Her family was my second so I spent a lot of time at her house. Learning all about Challah Braided Bread and other traditional dishes. Now she is a rabbi and we are still besties even today and miles apart. I still remember those childhood days and love recreating what I loved back then.

Of course I love thinking outside of the box though too. Typically you would find this Apple Slices Recipe made with shredded potatoes, which is wonderful too, but fruit is a great tweak on an Old Fashioned slice. If you have had this during holiday get togethers and ready to make your own batch, this is an easy step by step.

Apple Noodle Kugel

Made with egg noodles, eggs, sugar, and often dairy ingredients like sour cream or cottage cheese. You can certainly make yours sweet or savory, with the addition of raisins, cinnamon, or other flavorings. If you make yours like a potato tart it can be baked until crispy on the outside or softer and creamier on the inside.

Apple Noodle Casserole

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray or butter and set it aside. Cook the wide egg noodles according to the package instructions until they are al dente. Drain and set them aside to cool slightly.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and then add the granulated sugar, melted butter, vegetable oil, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, salt, and vanilla extract.
  • Mix until well combined.
  • Add the shredded apples and cooked noodles to the egg mixture. If you’re using raisins, add them at this stage as well.
  • Gently fold everything together until the apples and noodles are coated evenly with the mixture. Transfer the apple and noodle mixture to the greased baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, melted butter, granulated sugar, and ground cinnamon for the optional topping. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the kugel.
  • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 25-30 minutes or until top is golden brown on top, and the apples are tender.

Once done, remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. It can be served warm or at room temperature with Chicken Matzo Ball Soup. Slice into squares or scoop out to serve.

Passover Kugel

Some prefer to make this traditional Passover recipe with crumbled matzo crackers (unleavened bread), eggs, and various sweet or savory additions. Sweet kugel like this one is often served as a dessert or side dish for the holidays, while savory can be served as a side dish for meals.

Jewish Kugel Recipe

Just like with sweet potato latkes, all recipes can vary widely based on family traditions and regional influences. Some include fruits, vegetables, nuts, or spices to add flavor and texture. Typically baked in the oven until it’s set and has a golden or browned top. The baking time and temperature can vary depending on the recipe and the desired texture.

As with a Matzo Ball Recipe, this is commonly associated with Jewish cuisine and is a staple of many Jewish holiday meals, such as Rosh Hashanah, Passover, and Hanukkah, it is also enjoyed on other occasions. It can be found in various Jewish communities around the world in a variety of different flavors

In recent years, creative variations have emerged, incorporating modern ingredients and techniques. Some use ingredients like mashed sweet potatoes, butternut squash, or quinoa to put a contemporary twist on this traditional dish. It can be served as a whole casserole, sliced into squares, wedges, or scooped into individual servings.
