CHANUKAH RECIPE: Lokshen Kugel
Kugel is a baked pudding or casserole most commonly made from egg noodles or potato. The word “kugel” means “sphere, globe, or ball”, the Yiddish name originated as a reference to the round, puffed-up shape of the original dishes made hundreds of years ago and passed down by our ancestors… and this week’s version by foodnetwork.co.uk makes another popular dish idea for Chanukah!
