The kugel I recall growing up in NYC, was a noodle casserole my Hungarian grandma made - with cinnamon and raisins. There are many variations, as already mentioned here. If it is close to what you're looking for, send up a flare. Thanks for the memories.

Eureka - Just found this:

Title: Noodle Kugel
Yield: 12 Servings

500 g Medium broad egg noodles
110 g Sweet butter, softened
6 lg Eggs, separated
250 g Creamed cottage cheese
250 g Sour cream
100 g Sugar
4 15/16 ml Cinnamon
9 7/8 ml Vanilla
14 3/4 ml Orange peel, grated
500 g Apples, peeled, cored,sliced thinly
59 1/8 ml Sugar mixed with
14 3/4 ml Ground cinnamon

Cook noodles in boiling, salted water until just tender, about 10
minutes.Drain well and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add butter
and mix until the butter is melted. Set aside.

In another mixing bowl, combine egg yolks, cottage cheese, sour cream,
sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, orange peel, apples and raisin. Add this
mixture to the noodles and mix thoroughly.

Quickly beat egg whites until stiff.Fold the whites into the noodle
mixture thoroughly.Pour the noodle mixture into a greased 2 1/4 liter
(2 1/2 quart) casserole, suitable for the table. Sprinkle the
cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the top.

Bake in a preheated 205 C (400 F) oven for 45 minutes.

Serve from the casserole, either hot or at room temperature. The
kugel can be rewarmed in a 175 C (350 F) oven for 15 minutes.

Sorry, I don't know who to convert the metrics.
Looks wonderful. Copied and saved. Thank you, Connie.

Smile Kuglis Recipe

I'm first generation, and my family has been making this version since I was a kid:

8 lbs of potatoes (Yukon Gold or Idaho work best)
1 lb of bacon, chopped
1 large onion (yellow) - chop 1/2, cube other 1/2
2 eggs
1/2 can of Evaporated milk (optional)
1/2 Tbsp salt (or more, to taste)
Pepper to taste
2-3 cloves garlic (as desired)

Pre-heat oven to 425F.

Peel & cube potatoes. Food process (or blender) small batches of potatoes, with half of onion and garlic. Don't liquify it, but it should look almost like babyfood. Blend in eggs, salt, pepper & milk.

Fry up 1/2 lb of bacon and rest of onion. Drain off most of grease (just a little adds to the yumminess of the kugelis). Add to above mixture.

Grease 9x13 pan (glass or heavy duty Lecruset type preferred). Add potato mix. Spray/spritz with pam/butter spray (forms a nice crust on top).

Bake at 424F for about 30-40 minutes, then turn temp down to 350F for another 60-75 minutes. Broil for a couple of minutes if you desire a crispy crust! Test for readiness with toothpick or knife - when smooth, Kugelis is done!

Fry up the rest of the bacon, add more onion if desired, and garnish, along with sour cream. Enjoy!

Here is a very simple version of Pan fried noodle kugel.
Boil noodles, any kind, any amount (depending on your frying pan that you will use for frying), till done per box instructions.
Drain, rinse, add eggs, just enough to hold it together. Say if you are going to use 10" frying pan and have enough noodles to fill it in to the top, you'd probably need 4-5 eggs. Mix together and fry on both sides. Use a lid to flip the kugel from one side onto another. You can also add some fried onions or cooked ground meat, or both into a mix. Very simple and easy to make. Noodles could be precooked couple of day in advance.

Do yourself a big favor - email this young lady who now lives here and is from Lithuania. She has a delightful cookook with a touch of charming accent and has several Kugelis recipes. My family loves these dishes and my daughter has picked one from Raimonda's cookbook for me to make next. She will get a cookbook to you for sure - very reasonable and very interesting.

Raimonda was was 12 when the tiny nation of Lithuania faced down the mighty Soviet Empire and split it apart. Fourteen people died including the teenage girl who was crushed by a Soviet tank. I'm proud of my copy of Raimonda's cookook, "A Taste of Lithuanian Cooking".

David this thread is year and a half old. I doubt the original poster is going to even look in here. I realised that after I posted.
