Cooking With Joy: Yerushalmi Kugel

yerushalmi kugel

This was my first time making Yerushalmi Kugel.


I can’t say that I was nervous, although there was a lot of pressure on me for cooking this dish. Hubs spent a few years in Israel and has a strong idea of what this classic kugel is supposed to taste like. It was fairly easy to prepare so that was definitely an added bonus. The finished product could not have come out any better!

The kugel had just the right amount of sweetness. Incredibly crispy on the outside and delightfully soft on the inside, I could not stop picking at the crispy noodles off the top (it is always a good sign that something tastes good when people can’t stop picking at it!) Hubs said it tasted great, just needed to be served with an Israeli pickle to be truly authentic (luckily we had some in the fridge).
