Brisket Mission Accomplished

In case you were wondering...

The brisket was really good, if I do say so myself. But more importantly, let's get to the noodle kugel. That was the real star. If you eat a small portion, it's only a mere 35,000 grams of fat.

In the spirit of Jewish Grandma Syndrome, here's my grandma's recipe:

  • One pound of medium or wide egg noodles
  • A little less than 3 quarters of a cup sugar
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 1/2 pound of whipped cream cheese
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of white raisins (optional)
  • Boil noodles (but cook a little less than the full time)
  • Use a hand mixer to creme the sugar, butter and cream cheese (make sure it's soft, so take out of fridge before)
  • Then add the eggs one at a time, followed by the rest of the ingredients
  • Add it to the cooked noodles and stir together
  • Mix raisins in
  • Pour into a sprayed 9 x13 pan

Make the (most delicious) Topping:
  • Melt 1/2 stick of butter (as if you need more butter in this recipe)
  • Stir in 1 cup of cornflake crumbs (I bought cornflakes and put them in a plastic bag and smashed until it became crumbs) and 1/4 cup of sugar (oh, sure, this obviously needs more sugar)
  • Pour on top of the noodles
  • Add cinnamon to taste over the top (it's the only fat-free thing in this dish)
Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes.

This kugel is top notch. Bon appetit.
