Delicious Noodle Kugel a Treat For Yom Kippur

This noodle kugel is a perfect meal to break the Yom Kippur fast

By Merri Cohen September 26, 2022

One of our family traditions is to break the Yom Kippur fast with bagels, lox, and all kinds of yummy kugels. Kugels are noodle puddings. It always cracked me up that we would fast all day and then feast on the most fattening kugels. 

This graham cracker crust kugel recipe has been with my family since I was a little kid and makes its way to every one of our Jewish holiday tables. Heart-healthy this recipe is not, with 10 eggs, sour cream, and butter. Oy Vey! But, it is truly one of the most delicious things you will ever eat. And it's worth the once-a-year treat.
