Traditional Noodle Kugel Recipe

Sam the Cooking Guy tells us, “If there’s anything I know – it’s that I’m an old-school noodle kugel guy. That means no rosemary, no crème fraiche and no matsutake mushrooms. But it does mean sour cream, cottage cheese and corn flakes. And old-school delicious flavor.”
