I offered to make a kugel for a new mother for shabbos (as well as other things) and was told to make a salty kugel since someone else is making a sweet one.

what kugel would you make? luktion? I wouldnt call it salty....

I would just do anything not sweet. Potato kugel, salt and pepper lukshen kugel, mushroom kugel, onion kugel, broccoli or spinach kugel...

I would avoid sweet potato, sweet lukshen, zuchinni, carrot, and apple kugels...

Tizki lmitzvos!

onion noodle kugel:

1 huge spanish onion, or 2 regular sized onions, sauteed in 1/4 - 1/3 cup oil
Cook 1 bag egg noodles (the flat kind)
Mix the noodles with the onions and the oil that you fried them in.
Add 3 eggs and lots of salt.
Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan
Bake on 375 for 50 minutes

There's a Persian version of kugel called kuku, which is often made with cauliflower, eggplant, or spinach. Here's a master recipe that you can vary:


2 large eggplants,
or 2 pounds of cauliflower,
or 1 pound of frozen spinach plus one bunch each of green onions + dill + parsley

2 Tbs oil
2 medium onions, sliced
2 garlic cloves
4 eggs
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (optional for cauliflower or eggplant kuku)
4 Tbs lime or lemon juice (about 2 limes/lemons)
1 tsp baking powder
1 Tbs flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

1. For eggplant kuku: Slice the eggplants, and stir in about half the salt, and half the oil. Broil the eggplants on a large baking sheet in a 450 oven until soft and a little brown.
For cauliflower kuku: Steam, or microwave the cauliflower until tender.

2. Saute the onions in oil until soft and a little brown. Add in the eggplant, cauliflower, or spinach and herb mix. Add in the garlic. Continue sauteeing until everything is cooked together and tender. Set aside to cool.

3. Pour the vegetables, eggs, and all the other ingredients in a food processor, and puree it all together until combined into a batter. It does not need to be completely smooth. You may want to process it in batches if your food processor can't accommodate it all at once.

4. Preheat the oven to 350. Grease an 8 - 9 inch square baking pan, and pour the batter into it. Bake at 350 for 50-60 min, until it is cooked all the way through.

Here is a spinach noodle kugel:

half of one 12 oz bag of medium or wide egg noodles
1 medium onion, sliced thin or grated
10-16 oz frozen spinach
3 eggs
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4-1/2 tsp black pepper
3/4 tsp salt
2 Tbs oil
1/4 cup of soy milk

1. Cook the noodles in boiling water, undercook by 1 minute. Drain and pour into a large bowl. Preheat the oven to 375. Grease an 8 inch square baking pan.
2. Saute the onion and the spinach until soft and cooked, and most of the water is evaporated. Pour into the bowl of noodles.
3. Stir in the eggs, seasonings, oil, and soy milk.
4. Pour it into the baking pan. You can cover and chill this in the pan in the refrigerator for 1 hour, or overnight, if you want to make it ahead. Bake for 45-60 min, until it is firm and brown on top.

Another idea: You can stir other cooked grated or diced vegetables into you favorite potato kugel recipe. You can use mushrooms, spinach, zucchini, cauliflower, peas, etc

I know some of mine will overlap with what people said, but my "salty kugels" include: potato, mashed potato, zucchini (the one from here- if you want I can pull up the link), onion in dough (also from here), sauteed onion, challah kugel (I found a nonsweet one on here, too), stuffing, and vegetable kugel. Let me know if any of those ideas sound good and I can give you the recipes. Good luck!

So I never made potato kugel as I dont like it.
Technically I dont have to make for me too (can just make a pan and send) but potato kugel is kind of complicated from what I have seen. I wouldnt want to send it to someone my first time making it. (which by the way is for next shabbos not this one)

is the mashed potato kugel easier then a regular potato kugel?
Otherwise I wouldnt mind the recipe for the vegetable kugel or the zucchini kugel. (would either kugel do well as muffins?- not for her but if the recipe makes more then a 8x8 size I can freeze the rest for DS who has eaten those kugels in the past, or for guests)

Thanks again!
