Salt and Pepper Noodle (Lukshen) Kugel
Delicious savory kugel made on the stove top.
Absolute comfort food.
12 oz extra fine egg noodles, cooked and drained
8-10 oz (approximately 2 large) thinly sliced onion, sauteed in 1/4c oil until translucent (and some are caramelizing)
Mix the noodles with the onions in a large mixing bowl.
Add 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp ground black pepper (more to taste).
Pinch of ground chili powder (optional)
Beat 3 extra large eggs and mix into the noodle-onion mixture.
Heat 1/4 c oil, pour in the mixture, flatten and spread around evenly in the pan.
Cook for 7-10 minutes, check the bottom of the kugel to make sure it's begun to brown.
Slice onto a large dinner plate. Place a 2nd plate on top.
Invert the kugel and slide back into the hot pan. Continue to cook for about another 5 minutes.
Slide onto a large dinner plate, cut like a pie and serve warm.
