My three year old’s favorite self-described “healthy food” is noodle kugel. As with many of my other recipes, this dish involves very little preparation and very few utensils to clean. It’s fast to prepare, and it’s always a hit at potlucks. But even with a few modifications to reduce the fat – healthy, it is not.
The Easiest Noodle Kugel Recipe in the World – adapted from Epicurious
8 oz wide egg noodles/ 1 cup raisins/ 5 eggs/ 1 cup lowfat sour cream/ 1 stick melted butter, cooled/ 1/3 cup white sugar/ 4 cups of lowfat milk/ Topping: 3 cups corn flakes/ 1/4 cup brown sugar
Spread the UNCOOKED noodles (really!) and raisins in a buttered glass lasagna pan. Mix together all the other ingredients except the topping and pour over the noodles. Put the corn flakes and brown sugar in a zip-loc back and crush together. Pour over the unbaked kugel.
Bake at 350 for an hour or until firm in the center and golden brown on the edges.
