This is how to make a Kugel. Get out your eggs, noodles, sour cream, cottage cheese, sugar, and fruit salad. This is a classic kosher Passover treat or dish for any Jewish holiday.
Kugels may be sweet or savory. The most common types are made from egg noodles (called lochshen kugels) or potatoes and often contain potatoes, but there are recipes in everyday use in modern Jewish kitchens for a great diversity of kugels made with different vegetables, fruit, batters, cheese, and other flavorings and toppings.
Some modern cooks add a small amount of baking powder. In addition to lightening the dish, the powder's alkaline chemistry breaks down the potatoes and produces a smoother texture while promoting browning.
