One day, as I was making cabbage and noodles, (I really like them) I was thinking to myself that I haven


Main ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons oil

  • 1 pound shredded green cabbage

  • 3 leeks or 2 Vidalia onions, finely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 1 (12-ounce) package egg noodles, fine or medium width

  • 1 teaspoon oil

  • 4 whole eggs plus 1 yolk

  • 2/3 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup Gefen Bread Crumbs

  • 2/3 cup oil

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper

  • 2 Granny Smith apples, grated (optional)


Make the Kugel


In a very large, shallow pot, sautee the leeks/onions and cabbage in five tablespoons oil, for about 45 minutes over a low flame. Sprinkle in the sugar half way through cooking, and mix so that it all caramelizes evenly.


Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.


Heat a pot of boiling water. Cook the noodles for about five minutes. Strain and rinse under cold water, and immediately toss with one teaspoon of oil to prevent noodles from sticking together.


In a large bowl, place the eggs, yolk, sugar, bread crumbs, oil, salt and white pepper. Mix, then add noodles and sauteed cabbage and leek (and apples if using).


Grease two nine-inch pans or 12 cupcake tins (you may need more). Pour in the noodle mixture. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and bake 30 minutes more for muffins, or 45 minutes for nine-inch rounds.

Can these be made ahead? How stored and then reheated?
