Guest: Honey, what is this called?
Me: Noodle kugel.
Guest: Cooked noodles?
Me: It's called noodle kugel.
Guest: Noodle good what?
Me: Kugel. That's what it's called. It's just a funny name.
So, I thought I would give some explanation. First of all, "kugel" is pronounced "coo-gul." It's a noodle casserole made with egg noodles, and it can be sweet or savory, and maybe even both. Apparently, kugels were originally cooked in a round pan and were puffed up and round, so the dish was named "kugel," meaning "ball" in German. Whatever, join us in May, when we'll be having that yummy noodle dish.
