In its most basic form kugel is an Ashkenazi Jewish casserole that is filled with starch (potato, pasta, rice, or bread) and baked. From here, ingredients and methods can go in a myriad of directions; there are as many opinions on how to make kugel as there are ways to make it. Some kugel recipes are savory, while others are sweet. Some employ toppings such as corn flakes or streusel, while others go bare. The filling can be made with eggs, cream cheese, sour cream, or cottage cheese, and flavored with extracts, zests, and spices. Our version is sweet and creamy with equal amounts of vanilla and cinnamon for a warm, autumnal vibe. There is no extra topping in our recipe, but the finished kugel is broiled until crisp, which creates crunchy bits of noodle that are irresistibly delicious.

This is a very good foundation for me to replace kase nephla. I used the savory version; grated a queso fresco in place of the same wt of cottage cheese and in place of the noodles used spetzla.
I’m GF and low-carb (per dr’s advice) so I really want to try this with cauliflower.
Because I do miss kase nephla.
Idk how it’ll work but want to try maybe 1/2 batch without any filling added to the cheese mixture and do as a European desert without any crust.
