Cottage cheese kugel
Kugel, a sweet or savory baked pudding is usually made with egg noodles or potatoes. The addition of cinnamon, sugar and vanilla allows this version to work best as a dessert, brunch or a side dish. It’s topped with cornflake crumbs and baked until golden and bubbly. If you like, add 1/4 cup golden raisins to the mixture before baking. To make the kugel ahead, follow the recipe up to assembling the noodle mixture in a baking dish. Cover, and store in the refrigerator up to a day ahead. For the best results, don’t add the topping until right before baking.

- Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with nonstick spray.
- Cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Add the cottage cheese, milk, egg substitute, sour cream, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.
