Kugel is a traditional Jewish dish, a casserole made from starch (often noodles) and an eggy custard that can be either sweet or savory. This rich, chock-full-of-fruit noodle kugel is lightly sweetened with honey, with a cinnamon-sugar topping that bakes up fragrant and crisp. Kugel is often served as a side dish, but you can certainly enjoy it as a snack, dessert, or even breakfast. Use whatever type of apples you like best; we used sweet Ambrosia apples, but you could try tart Granny Smith or sweet-tart Honeycrisp.

Ingredients

Uncooked no yolk egg noodles

6 oz

Raisins

¼ cup(s)

Fresh apple(s)

6 cup(s), unpeeled and chopped (about 3 large)

Water

¼ cup(s)

Ground cinnamon

1½ tsp, divided

Egg(s)

4 large

Plain fat free Greek yogurt

¾ cup(s)

Honey

¼ cup(s)

Vanilla extract

2 tsp

Table salt

¼ tsp

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Sugar

1 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Cook noodles according to package directions, adding raisins during last 1 minute of cooking time (to plump them). Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add apples and water; cover and cook until apples are tender, about 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover, stir in 1 tsp cinnamon, and cook until any liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk eggs until lightly beaten. Whisk in yogurt, honey, vanilla, and salt. Add noodles and apples and toss to combine. Spoon mixture into a 2-quart casserole dish coated with nonstick spray. Combine sugar and remaining ½ tsp cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over noodle mixture. Bake at 350°F until set, 45 minutes. Serve warm.
  4. Serving size: 1 scant cup
