Thanksgiving Kugel

Thanksgiving Kugel

Kugel (Yiddish: n. kugl or koogel, or kigel, in Galicia/Central Europe) is any one of a wide variety of traditional baked Jewish side dishes or desserts, and can be sweet or savory. It is sometimes translated as "pudding" or "casserole." This Thanksgiving Kugel took home the best non-savory title at my Third Annual Casserole Party, and was a Jewish (Brian Tooze)/gentile (Lacey Tauber) collaboration.
