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) 
Cool mixture 
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. 
Yummmmmmm..............
