Cabbage Kugel

A kugel is like a pudding but is made savory as well as sweet.  Examples of savory kugels are potato kugel, onion kugel, broccoli kugel and similar.  Sweet kugels are apple, noodle and rice kugels.   I think that most of them are drier than a pudding is but it is similar.  This cabbage kugel is almost like a custard and it is really great.  I took a taste and loved it.  I had to control my hand from putting the spoon back into the kugel.

  1. Interesting! I have had noodle kugel before (a friend’s mom used to make a wonderful one), but didn’t realize you could make different kinds!
