Today, Nana came over to the house to teach Alana and I to make my great-grandmother's kugel. It's a simple but delicious recipe. She still has the instructions written in Big Nanny's handwriting. It is what Dad will have for dinner tonight, his first night back at home after more than two weeks at the hospital.
Big Nanny's Kugel
1 pint of sour cream
1 pint of cottage cheese
1 stick of butter, melted
6 eggs, whisked
16 oz to 20 oz wide egg noodles
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together. Butter the lasagna dish. Pour the ingredients into the dish and bake until the top is golden brown. Once baked, cool, and remove from dish and cut into squares. It can be frozen. Nana prefers to reheat it in the toaster oven.
We listened to the soundtrack of Singin in the Rain while we cooked.
